This week we only have one day of a schedule change due to PARCC and that is Monday (tomorrow). Our Special (Music) will be at 10:15am and our recess will be at 2pm. Then on Friday we will have a schedule change as it is a half day (previously scheduled day off). Lunch is not served on half days, so please feel free to send your student in with an extra snack. Please still have students return their library books on Friday. Last Friday we almost had a 100% return rate!! I'm hoping we can this Friday!
Our story of the week this week is Mama's Birthday Present. We will have our traditional homework packet that will go home tomorrow. We will also have spelling words that will be assessed on Friday. Please be sure to study those words at home. :)
In Math we will work on telling time to the hour and continue with adding two digit numbers. Ecourage your student to look at an analog clock and discuss what "o'clock" means at home! :)
We will finally finish up our Social Studies Unit on Maps! Students will complete their "Me on a Map" flipbook and bring that home this week-- we are almost done! :)
While working on our caterpillar diaries, we used an app called Booksy. It's a free app that has some free books on it. There are in-app purchases for additional book as well if you are interested. However, many students loved seeing books on the iPad. A few students asked me to write down the app's name so they could download it at home so I figured I would email it along.
Your student might have came home this past week and mentioned a new name in our classroom. Mrs. Campbell started last Monday. She is covering Mrs. Kirshner's maternity leave, which started last week. Mrs. Campbell is in our room everyday for Math, just as Mrs. Kirshner was.
Book orders are due on April 1st! If you would like to order books from the Scholastic Reading Club, please have your order in by April 1st. Any orders after April 1st will not be submitted until our next book order, which will be after April Vacation.
I hope everyone has a great week!
