Friday News

Dear Parents,

We have really enjoyed the weather this week…from cold to warm! At least we have been able to get outside! We had a great Valentine’s celebration on today. Quite a busy week!

In reading, we read a story called “Rainy Day Projects”. In this story, the Superkids each come up with a project for a rainy day and they write them in a “how to” format. We also chose a topic and wrote it in a “how to” format. Your kids are amazing. Many wrote and edited a great paper! We are learning more and more phonics rules. These rules include “y” as a vowel. Ask your child what “y” can sound like at the end of a word. (long e or long i) Ask them how many vowels for a long i sound at the end of the word and how many vowels if you have a long e sound at the end of the word. They will be able to tell you!

In math, we are working on adding and counting on but with double digit numbers. They are getting very good at mental math. Ask them if they can tell you what 40+25 is…..they have strategies to determine the answer! You will be amazed. Next week, we are moving onto regrouping! WOW!! As always, keep practicing those math facts so that your child can know them automatically, especially subtraction!

In religion, we learned about praying with bible stories. We talked about where we like to pray and how we like to pray. Ask you child their favorites!
