Happy Thursday! Our meteorologist, Kaleb, reported sunny skies and a high of 73 degrees today! How nice!
This week we completed our unit on Main Idea by sharing the main idea of a story through discussing, summarizing, or illustrating and writing about it. We learned that a summary is “some of the story” (the most important parts).
In Writing we are learning all about adjectives. Today we popped popcorn and wrote down adjectives that fell into the 5 senses. We’ve also talked about adjectives that describe color, size, and how many. We are going to use adjectives to make our stories even more interesting than they already are!
In math this week we have been using the number grid to add two digit numbers. We told silly math stories with our animal cards today. Ask your child about the stories he/she completed.
Our word work sort is the ack, ick, ock, uck sort. You can practice making words at home or finding those words while reading.
We started a new social studies unit on American Symbols yesterday. We will learn about the flag, the eagle, the Liberty Bell, the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, and the White House over the next several weeks.
Next week we will be going to the public library on Wednesday. Monday will be day 1-gym day!
Please note that we are no longer sending home the word work homework booklets. We have become experts at our word wall words!! Math and reading will continue on the same homework schedule.
Please look for a paper coming home tomorrow asking for chaperones for our upcoming field trips. The form explains the duties for each trip. If you are able to help, please complete the form and return it by next Friday. Remember that you must have clearances on file at the office to be a field trip chaperone. Permission slips for the trips will be coming home in early May.
Have a wonderful weekend!
