Thank you to all of the parents that came to our parent-teacher conferences, they all went very well.
Also, thank you to all of the parents that worked the school carnival. I know the students I saw were having a great time!!
NO HOMEWORK THIS WEEK!!!! I will have the students work extra hard to finish our Backpack Pages during class. We will still have a spelling test. I would also like to have one more week in class to work on adding nine. We have a flu bug going through our class and it is a tiring/exciting week...I think it would be nice for the students to just read and practice spelling, but nothing formal needs to be turned in.
This week in class:
Spelling: flipped, flipping, stepped, stepping, there, from, be, to, we, or
Reading: We are reading, "Dominic's Apple" and "Yuck! Yuck!"---Problem and Solution
Writing- We are writing a story about our field trip
Grammar- Take a verb and turn it into a noun by adding er....for example- swim...swimmer....The students are also learning that the one vowel, one letter after the vowel applies to adding 'er' at the end words not just 'ed' and 'ing'.
Math-Practice addition with nine.....also start the basics of subtraction-counting backwards
Science- What do Animals Need?
MASS WEDNESDAY---All Saint's Mass
From now on---Shorts may not be worn for a uniform---Boys must wear corduroy pants and girls must wear jumpers. Jumpers need to be at an appropriate length. We have a few girls who have grown since the beginning of the year and their jumpers are short. Thank you parents!!
Have a safe week,
