Week of April 30th

WOW!!!!  That’s all I can say is WOW!  This year is flying by.  I can’t believe we are almost to May.  Your kiddos have been working so hard.  I feel so blessed each day to be a small part of their lives.  We have a lot going on over the next few weeks.  I am going to try my best to mention it all but I feel like I’m going to forget something.

Wednesday of this week, May 2nd, we will be having class pictures taken.  The cost is $10.00 for an 8×10 and 5×7 funny shot.  This is a great keep sake for them and you.  We will be sending an envelope home today for you to send back with your kiddo.  You have until this Friday to order.

We are having our final spelling test tomorrow on the following words: way, find, water, may, use, long, little, very, after, words

Math:  We have been working on double digit addition and subtraction without regrouping, three addends, and 3 dimensional shapes.  This week we will  work on fractions, 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4.  We will also work on expanded notation.

Phonics:  We are just reviewing a lot of things throughout the year that seem to be giving us a little trouble in our writing like sneaky “e” at the end of words, vowel combinations (ay, oi, oy, etc…), and those blends.

Writing:  Our focus is still on beginning-middle-end of stories.  We are really struggling with getting those details in our stories.  I have hit punctuation pretty hard with them so hopefully that’s starting to show up.  Using capitals in the right places and when writing I.  We are starting to get there I think.  You will see another graded writing sample come home sometime this week.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to call me!
