Weekly Newsletter for May 21-25, 2018

          We are continuing to dive into our story, “Mama’s Birthday Present!”  Throughout this story, we are discussing how a surprise can be a treasure.  We are focusing on how to draw conclusions from the text.  Our test on this story will be on Thursday, May 24th. 

Our focus phonics skills for this story are the vowel team ai and ay and singular and plural possessives.  Our spelling words for this story are train, way, tail, play, day, may, rain, gray, and mail.  Our challenge words are, “about” and “would.”  Our test for these spelling words will be on Thursday, May 24th. 

In Math, we are continuing to discuss adding double digit numbers.  Last week, we learned how to regroup the ones column to create a new ten!
