I am sending a book order home today. Remember, this is a great way to get your kids reading something that interests them to SPARK or further their love for reading. Ordering from scholastic also gives me an opportunity to expand our classroom library with books and games FOR FREE with bonus points!
Please send CHECK only or you may order online. Our Class Code is: NGZ2M
The order is due January 20th
Thanks for all that you do!!
Please be aware of the temperature in the mornings, last week there were several kids that would come to school with no coat on and/or in shorts and short sleeves. Please make sure that your child comes to school with a coat on. We don’t go outside if it “feels like” 35 degrees or below, but when we can go out, we are going! Please just be aware of the weather forecast.
This week in…
Reading: It’s time for the mid-year TPRI (Texas Primary Reading Inventory), so students will be tested to see their improvement in these reading/writing/comprehension skills.
Word Work: We will continue analyzing and sorting nouns and now adding adjectives to describe them. This will be assessed in their writing.
Spelling: will, each, about, how, up, out, them, then, she, many
The spelling test will be next Tuesday over these 10 words along with words from the past. The spelling grade on the report card is a grade from spelling test and also for using spelling words in their independent writing.
Math: Measurement will continue, as well as, problem solving with addition and subtraction. We are also introducing money and time in our number corner.
Please be aware of some upcoming events:
January 16- School Holiday
January 25-Early Release/Faculty Inservice (Please be sure there are arrangements made for going home early.)
