Weekly Newsletter for March 12- 16, 2018
We are continuing to discuss how places change in our story, “A Place to Play.” We are also identifying sequencing words and talking about the sequence of a story. Our test for “A Place to Play” will be Friday, March 16th.
Our focus phonics skills for this story are vowel sounds of y and syllable pattern cv. Our spelling words are: my, by, try, sunny, handy, fly, cry, lucky, silly and puppy. Our challenge words for this story include: “things” and “always.” Our test for these focus skills will be on Friday, March 16th.
In Math, we are really focusing on comparing and ordering numbers to 100. We have really focused on identifying one more, one less, ten more, and ten less! We are going to begin comparing numbers to identify which is greater than, less than or equal to. Our test for Topic 9 will be early next week!
On Friday, I sent home a paper outlining our PTO’s basket raffle. The event will be held on April 14th and April 15th. Each classroom has selected a theme to donate towards the basket raffle. This year, our theme will be a gift card assortment.
There are two ways you can participate in our class basket:
1. 1. You may purchase a gift card on your own and send it to school with your child in their OWL folder.
2. You may send in a monetary donation in an envelope in your child’s OWL folder and I will purchase the gift card for you!
*Please note, any size gift card/ money donation would be greatly appreciated!
*If you are interested in participating in the PTO basket raffle, all gift cards and money must be turned in by Wednesday, March 28th.
