Students continue to work on contractions and long and short vowel rules (AND exceptions to the rule or trickers). We have been reading decoable texts and working on main idea and retelling. I have been pulling students to do their end of the year BAS assessment to check on their current reading level and students are really doing a wonderful job! The amount of growth is amazing! Thanks for your support at home with the reading. Keep it up!
We have started with our Embryology research papers and the collection of ideas and research for the paper. Students can wrtie about the egg, the chick or the chicken and it is an open-ended project where students are given the freedom to come up with their own question that they are interested in answering. Some students are working in a small group, a few in partners and most are working independently.
Students explored coins this week and reviewed dimes and pennies and then learned about nickels and quarters. Students practiced adding coins and identifying coins. Students did independent practice and games. I encourage you to have your child help count out change at the store or at home. We will continue to practice this into next week.
- We are out of snack and would love some donations to help us make it through the end of the year.Please continue to send your child with a snack. This is supposed to be a back-up plans should a child forget his/her snack.
- If you haven't turned in your Look Park permission slip and $6, please do so asap. We need a permission slip from each child so that we can attend.
