May! The busiest time of the year and also the most unreal. I can’t believe our babies are almost 2nd graders! This group is so special and I am so blessed to have been part of their journey as well as them in my journey!
This Wednesday, May 2nd, we have class group pictures. The cost is $10.00 CASH ONLY for an 8×10 and 5×7 funny shot. This is a great keep sake for them and you. An envelope came home today. All cash is due Friday, May 4th.
Our read-a-thon is also going on this week! I have sent home two notes to get their account set up and directions of the contest. Just setting up an account will get them a free prize which is always fun! If you would like to donate and promote reading, please do so through your child’s account. After your child’s account is set up you can then share through facebook or twitter to raise money. This is the only fundraiser for our school and we benefit a great deal. Again, this is a donation. But please at least set up your kiddo so they can receive the free prize and get more excited about reading!
We are having our final spelling test tomorrow on the following words: way, find, water, may, use, long, little, very, after, words
Math: We will start double digit addition and subtraction without regrouping, and we have finished out segment on 3 dimensional shapes but will continue to review. This week we will work on fractions, 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4. We will also work on expanded notation.
Phonics: We are reviewing a lot of things that seem to be giving us a little trouble in our writing like sneaky “e” at the end of words and vowel combinations.
Writing: Our focus is still on beginning-middle-end of stories and adding details and imagination. You will see another graded writing sample come home tomorrow along with other graded papers.
I appreciate you, if you have any questions or concerns please call or text! (903)985-0778
