Weekly Letter 3/6

Posted on March 6, 2017

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We have a busy week as usual in class 1-2. Please continue to read on to see what we will be learning this week…

Reading & Writing: We will be finishing our American Symbols unit this week. Students will have an opportunity to create their own Mount Rushmore. They will choose 4 important people in their lives that they feel should be part of their Mount. They will then have a chance to illustrate what that Mount would look like. Towards the end of the week students will show what they have learned over the past couple of weeks. Students will give 2 facts for each symbol that we have learned about. I am so excited to see what they come up with! J

Phonics: This week our phonics pattern focuses on the long I sound. The long I sound can be i_e, ie, or igh. Our words this week follow the ie and igh pattern. Please continue to practice spelling words each night. There will be a spelling test on Friday!

Math: There will be a chapter 7 assessment on Thursday! Study guides went home on Monday. We will be working in groups this week to practice some of the skills that we will need to know for the test.

Religion: Chapter 19- We Celebrate God’s Forgiveness. Students will be learning about the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation. We will be talking about what it means to forgive others and how God is always ready to forgive us!

Weekly Letter February 27th

Posted on

I hope you all had a nice relaxing break! It is always difficult to come back after a week off, but the students told me all of the wonderful things they did while they were not in school. It sounds like everyone had a lot of fun! J This week we are busy as usual. Please read to find out some of the topics we will be covering!

Reading & Writing

This week we will be finishing our American Symbols book. The students have been working very hard to give each symbol as much information as possible. They are so excited to share these books with you!

I will be assessing your Childs reading level this week and next week. I hope to have these completed by the end of next week. You will be notified of their new level a.s.a.p.

Phonics & Spelling

The phonics skill for this week will focus on the “ow” and “oa” sounds. When figuring out whether a word has “oa” or “ow” you can listen to the word and see if you hear the long o in the middle or at the end. If you hear it in the middle you use “oa”, if you hear the long a at the end you use “ow”.

Math

In math we will be starting chapter 7 “compare numbers”. We will practice using the greater than >, less than <, and equal to =, signs to compare numbers. We have used the idea that the “alligator mouth should always face the bigger number, since he is hungry.” First we look at the tens place to see if that will help us find the greater or less than number. If those numbers are the same we need to look at the ones place instead.

Announcements & Reminders

  • Friday, March 3rd is a noon dismissal!
  • Progress Reports need to be signed and returned by Friday, March 3rd.
  • Scholastic Orders are due March 15th
  • Please make sure when your child is doing their readers response; they are not choosing the same question every week. Try to have them explore some of the other questions
