New Update: Next week we have Ash Wednesday (the beginning of Lent), 100th day and Valentine's Day.
Since Valentine's Day and Ash Wednesday are on the same day, all Valentine cards will be exchanged on Tuesday, February 13th. If you plan to have your child pass out Valentine cards, I would appreciate these guidelines be followed.
Cards should be given to every child in the class. There should be NO NAMES in the TO section. Only the FROM sections should be filled in. Also, candy treats with cards must be peanut free and tree nut free to avoid any cross contamination with any student that may be allergic in school or on the bus.
We will also be celebrating the 100th day of school on Tuesday, February 13th. It should be a fun day.
I hope all the students enjoyed all the activities done during Catholic Schools Week. This week we will get back to more of our routine.
This week we will spell words with inflected ending -ed.
Reading: We are reading the story "Frog and Toad Together." The vocabulary words are afraid, read, soon, again, how, few, rain, ground, head, shouted, shouting, garden, grow, poor, right, hard. The skills are plot, inflected endings -ed, -ing and r-controlled ar.
Math: We are finishing up on place value, counting bu 2's, 5's, 10's. and 1's to 100.. Students should be able to identify and write these numbers as well. We also practice math facts each day as these facts should be memorized.
Please do Lexia at least two 25 minute sessions to provide extra practice in the language arts curriculum.
