This weeks summary:
We had a great week!
We have worked really hard on John Phillip Duck. I will send their mentor books home on Monday after I grade their comprehension. Last weeks book came home today. It is yellow and has a chicken on itTheir comprehension grade comes from the Newsela article...... The kids really enjoyed this story. Get them to tell you about the parts inside the book!!!!!
A LOOK ahead:
Our lunch time will be at 11:00-11:30- during testing.
We are so excited about our field trip on THURSDAY!!!
In Math, we continue to spiral different problems and worked a lot on adding 2 three digit numbers with regrouping. Next week we will begin Lesson 14 subtracting 3 digit numbers. Chapter 13 quiz to come home on Monday. Remember, you have your other math books at home, if you'd like to know the kinds of problems we are doing.
Our biggest project this week has been our caterpillars. Your child is a proud parent of 2 caterpillars. Ask them about their food and the things that they need to survive.
We are down to two duck eggs. I am thinking maybe the others were not fertilized because we never saw any veins. The other two are doing well and we got to see movement in both of the eggs this week.
This next week will be Mrs. Sensat's last week with our class.
If anyone has anything that they would like to contribute to help towards sending Mrs. Sensat off prepared, please send that in by Tuesday. I have a very sweet book that I got her that I am going to let the kids sign!
Also, if your child would like to write a thank you note to her, we will enclose that too. There is nothing more special than a hand written note!
Her help has been so valuable.
We are still in need of some items before the school year ends.
Clorox wipes to help keep us healthy through testing and the end of the year! We will be handling ducks!!!!
Can we help out 3-5th grades???? We want to boost moral and help encourage the testers!!!!
Next week, 3-5 graders will begin testing. We have the opportunity to sponsor a classroom and sent them incentives to do well on the test. We need Smarties, Cookies (a package of Oreo's or any kind), and any kind of lollipops. We will each make something to go with the treat. We will make things like "You are a smartie pants"The kids are going to create these for other kids, so no parent assistance needed
P.S. Totally kidding about the petting zoo! HA!
P.P.S. Our door is totally cute!!! Stop by to see it. It will make you smile. (Thank you Hollie and Angela)
