If you would like to order from the Scholastic magazine that was sent home in Friday folders, our class code to order online is R8KCM.


A small family project/homework will be sent home in Friday folders this week.  I will send each student home with an Easter egg, and they will choose one small item to hide in the egg.  They will then write out 3 clues for the item that is hiding in the egg.  They will read the clues for the class to guess what is hiding in the egg.  More details and the clue page will be sent home in Friday folders.  Thanks for your help with this!

Here is what we are working on this week:

Reading theme/Phonics:  Our theme this week is Spring.    We are going to practice more with sounding out and blending words and reading.

Our new sight words are “has” “had” “will” “make.”

Please work with your child at home to ensure that they have mastered the following words:

Jesus, God, blue, can, I, red, the, we, yellow, like, green, a, to, and, see, play, purple, orange, go, is, pink, brown, black, have, you, for, white, gray, are, look, here, that, it, he, she, then, them, these, by, up, down, at, there, out, which, who, what, when, number, one, two, made, time, write, people, am, do, did, in, on, was, with, has, had, will, make

Math:  We are going to work with both addition and subtraction for the rest of the school year.  We will begin discussing measurement also.

Writing: Drawing real life pictures with 3-star coloring (colors make sense, no white spaces, staying in the lines) and using labels.  We are now trying to write several full sentences.  We are working on sounding out words, starting sentences with capital letters, ending with a sentence stopper, and proper spacing between words.
