Weekly Newsletter for January 15-19, 2018
We will be starting a new story in Reading, “Who Works Here?” Our class will be discussing who works in our community to make it a nicer place.
Our phonics skills for this story are the Long I sound and digraphs wh, ch, tch, and ph. Our spelling words for this story are: like, ride, smile, time, white, bike, dime, hide, ice, and kite. Our challenge words for this story are “who” and “work.”
In Math, we will take our Topic 6 test tomorrow, Tuesday, January 16th. In Topic 7, we talk about what number patterns there are when counting to 120. Our key vocabulary for Topic 7 includes: skip counting, column and row.
This week we will begin Boosterthon! Our kick-off pep rally is tomorrow and we are very excited to begin learning the “six virtues of becoming a true hero.” Our fun-run will take place next Thursday!
Scholastic Book Orders are due Friday, January 19th. You may order online by using our class code: MJJ8J or you may send in the book order with a check (Scholastic INC.)
As a class, we love to read and listen to stories! It is very important that kids hear fluent reading and activate comprehension strategies. One way we can practice these skills is by having guest readers come into our classroom! If any parent/ grandparent/ guardian would like to come into our class, please let me know by writing me a note, email or Class Dojo message!

Monday (1/15)- Day 6
Tuesday (1/16)- Day 7 *Boosterthon Pep-Rally
Wednesday (1/17)- Day 8

Friday (1/19)- Day 10 *Spartan Dress Down Day for a $1 donation
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me! I can be reached by phone, note, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by Class Dojo message!
