Weekly Newsletter for May 7- May 11, 2018
We are beginning our story, “Where Are My Animal Friends?” in Reading. Throughout this story, we will discuss what animals do when the seasons change. As a class, we will also be working on drawing conclusions from our text. Our test for this story will be Monday, May 14th.
Our focus phonics skills for this story are comparative endings –er, -est and the ending –dge. Our spelling words are: faster, fastest, taller, tallest, shorter, shortest, sadder, saddest, bigger and biggest. Our challenge words include: “good-bye” and “before.” Our spelling test will also be on Monday, May 14th.
We are beginning our new topic in Math today! In Topic 10, we will be discussing adding with tens and ones.
Since our school year is beginning to wind down, we wanted to be sure to celebrate everyone’s birthday! Each of our summer month birthday kiddos were assigned a “birthday day” during the month of May! I will send home a note with your child if they are a June/ July/ August birthday, to let you know which day we will celebrate them! If you would like to send in cupcakes or cookies on your day, you are more than welcome! We have a total of 23 students in our class!
