A huge thank you to all the moms that helped during our Valentine’s party. Your kids had a wonderful time!
Reminder...RAZ-Kids Reading Assessment due Wednesday, February 21st. Please see the message that was sent via email on Tuesday.
Some of your kiddos will notice another icon on their Raz Kids homepage. It is titled "Flight Check." Please have your child complete this activity independently. There are 3 parts for your child to do here. First, record reading the passage aloud. (No help from parents please and students should not practice reading it before sending it to me.) Second, record themselves talking about what happened in the short story. Third, take the quiz. Students will get this online "check-in" assignment as needed. These assessments are due by Wednesday, February 21st. Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions.
, I sent out an order form for our Class Poetry Book. Each child from my class will create a page (a poem and an illustration) to be included in the class book. Once completed, the pages will be sent to a company for “publishing” and our very own hardcover professionally bound book will come back for us to enjoy. Each family has a chance to order a personal copy for only $ 19.95. The order forms were sent home Friday. See below for highlights...
Each family has a chance to order a personal copy for only softcover for $19.95 or hardcover for $ 24.95. Order forms are due back by .
1) Please make checks payable to Studentreasures Publishing NOT the school.
2) Ordering Online: Please be sure to include the Authorization Code on the order form and return it to school with your child.
3) Even if you do not wish to purchase a copy, please send back the form with NO marked so that it is indicated that your child’s page can be included in our class book and so that our class will receive a free book for all to enjoy.
Math: Students will practice and develop a deeper understanding of the idea that addition facts can help them solve subtraction facts because they are related. When given 3 numbers student should be able to generate the two addition and two subtraction facts that are related to these three given numbers. For example related facts for: 3, 4, 7...3+4=7, 4+3=7, 7-4=3, 7-3=4
Science: We will be wrapping up our unit on Living/Non-living, Interdependence, and Food Chains. We will review with several activities and test on Friday.
Reading with Integrated Social Studies: This week, students will continue to learn about goods and services by reading and discussing the books: Daisy Diaz Shakes Up Camp and Alexander, Who Used to be Rich Last Sunday. Students will learn that goods and services may be provided/received/exchanged by other means. For example, bartering (exchanging) and trading may be used to fulfill your needs and wants. We will also discuss that people need to make choices when things are scarce.
Writing: Students will select a poem from their collection and begin working on their individual page for our published class poetry book. This will include getting the poem to final copy form (written in pen) along with an illustration. While working on their page for our book, they will also be creating their own little poetry books that will house a collection of their own poems they wrote throughout our poetry unit.
