Happy Spring Break!
Please send in any old magazines! We still would love to have more!
Practice your spelling words at least 3 times a week. We have homework journals for our spelling sentences on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Please encourage your student to add phrases to their spelling sentences. I have noticed some “lazy” sentences in the journals!! Keep working hard.
We will move onto our next unit theme, Keep Trying. We will be reading The Fox and the Grapes, from our anthology book. Look for this to come home this week! Please make sure they are returned the next day and please take care of our books at home. We will be working on finding the main idea and supporting details from our stories.
We began our new chapter on solids and shapes. We will be discussing sides, vertex, and faces of several solids.
Our jar of jellybean promises is filling up fast. Thanks you for helping your child understand the journey of Lent. We also made Pope puppets with facts about Pope Francis I.
Please make sure your child brings back their homework journal every day. They are going to be using their spelling words in sentences. It is up to you how much you help them. If they are ready to be writing on their own, let them. Some may need a gentle push to get started. Please let me know if you have any questions. Starting next week, if your student forgets to do homework journals they will be finishing it at morning recess!! Also, if your child suggests partner reading for the decoding books go with it!! They really like reading them this way!
