Happy New Year!
I can't believe it is 2015! I hope you all had a wonderful Winter Break. It has been a great first week back to school. We really hit the ground running and the kids have had great behavior which always helps things run smoothly! :)
There has been a change to Rover's Art Walk. This event was scheduled for Friday Jan. 31st, and has been moved to March 31st. Even though this event has been pushed back, I would still like to get started on it. At the Art Walk each class is responsible for auctioning off a decorated chair. If any of you are getting rid of any of your chairs from home, or have a chance to stop at Goodwill please let me know! It can be any old chair! Once we have the chair I will need a few people to help me brainstorm ideas for how we can decorate it. I hope to have a few parents help me out with this!
Reading: Next week we will be reading the story Where Does Food Come From? Our phonics skill will be vowel pairs ay and ai. Our focus skill will be Author's Purpose.
Math: Next week in math we will continue to work on Equal Shares (Fractions). We are focusing on halves, thirds, and fourths. We will also be working on counting by 10's.
Writing: This week we will be working on an Opinion Narrative. We will be telling our favorite food and giving reasons to support our opinion.
Social Studies: We have started our map unit in Social Studies. Last week we went on a tour of the World and discovered the seven Continents. We will dig deeper in to this next week!
Grammar: In grammar we will be learning about the names of months, dates, and holidays. We will also talk about using commas in dates.
**Please double check that your child has their library book to return on Mondays. We have been having quite a few people forgetting them each week and I want to make sure the kids are getting new books!
Have a great week, let me know if you have any questions!
