Students will wear jeans and a SOLID colored t-shirt.

Reading/Phonics: In Phonics, we will concentrate on the long I sounds spelled: igh, _y, and _ie. We will also review base words and our rules for adding suffixes.  Our essential question this week is, “How can weather change your day?”  We’ll read a fantasy story titled The Kite in which best friends Frog and Toad have a hard time getting their kite to fly.  We will discuss the story elements (characters, setting, plot) and work with a story map this week. Then we’ll find out about meteorology by reading the informational text Measuring Weather in our close reader.

Grammar/Writing:  In grammar this week, we will be reviewing adjectives.    Look for the grammar book to come home Thursday.   We will be working on a story map of The Kite with illustrations and writing.

Religion: We will move on in our book and discuss how Jesus sends us the Holy Spirit.  We will also be discussing some symbols used to represent the Holy Spirit.

Social Studies\ Science:  We will be back in our daily science books next week.
