Spalding/Spelling We will test on 30 new words and 10 review words every week. On Thursdays we will have a pretest. Those who get 100% on the pretest will not have to take the Friday test. We will also test on 30 phonograms on Fridays. On the first Friday of the month we have a test over all 70 phonograms.
Reading/Book Reports This week we will read Benjamin Franklin. We will do a reading and vocabulary test on Thursday. Please go over the vocabulary words with your child. This week’s reading tests will also receive a social studies grade.
Language We will work with the suffixes tion, ish, ly, and al and quotation marks. I will finish modeling an informative report about an animal. Your child will have a model/example to take home to be used as a guide for their report due in May. These examples were written together as a class, but have not been edited individually so there will be mistakes on them.
Math We will work on measurements of weight, subtracting across a zero, subtracting money amounts, time to the quarter hour, and fractions greater than 1.
Science We will finish out unit entitled Earth’s Weather. The test will be Wednesday for the vocabulary and Thursday for the content. We will review in class. Students may also bring their books home to study.
Social Studies None
Other Please help your child keep his/her book log up to date. Let's get them all in on or before March 8th. Thank you for turning in your re-registration forms. I will be sending the animal report packets home on Friday as I know some families like to get an early start. We will finish up the sample report next week or the week after. I have already taught them how to research and take notes, but they will still need your help with this process. A big shout out to Shannon Mackey for planning a great Valentine’s party. A good time was had by all!
