SHout out to parents...
I just want to let you know that I appreciate all of your time and support you give to your child with their homework. I hear so many fun things like, "my dad is challenging me to do the bonus words," or "my mom gave me a bunch of money to count," and "when we were reading last night..." Parents, you have no idea how much your kids love you and their time spent with you. Thank you for making time for homework. It is time well spent with your kiddo. Just a few more short weeks left and I'm cheering you on...finish strong!
And, on a personal note, I also want to thank you for all the big and little ways you support me and the class. A little note, an email, quick conversation in the hallway, driving on a field trip, offering to bring in supplies or just checking in on our little classroom...I appreciate it all! Thank you for making this year so wonderful!
Our homework will include another set of science spelling/vocabulary. They are only responsible for the spelling, not the definition. The list can be found in their homework folders as well as Spelling City. I will include class time for spelling since it's a short week. These words are much easier than last week's...which by the way, they did great! It was great to see them rise up to a challenge! Math will include ST Math and addition and subtraction of money. There will be no writing, but of course, reading!!!!
Science: We will continue the study of Earth Science and landformations this week. We will be doing a lot of reading, writing and hands on activities!
Math: Addition and subtraction of money.
Reading/Writing: We are in our second round of reading groups. The kids are doing so well. We are working on comprehending, inferring and reading with expression.
