February 17, 2020 by Jami Rowlett

I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend. A sign-up Genius went out for parent teacher conferences. These will be held on Feb. 28. Please be sure to sign up. If you didn’t receive it please let me know and I will email you the link. Also, if you are unable to meet at any of the times let me know and we can schedule a time that works better for you.

REMINDERS:

• PLEASE label all coats, jackets, hats, and other winter accessories with your child’s first and last name.

HOMEWORK:

• Reading every night for 20 minutes  (This includes sight words and reading group books that are coming home each night. Please return the books each day with your child.)
• Math fact sheet each night

Last week we:

• Continued using conjunctions to combine simple sentences into complex sentences.
• Determined the main topic of a text and identified supporting details.
• Took a word study assessment on -ate words and also was, saw, and are.

• Began creating animal slideshows
• Determined the characters, setting, beginning, middle and end after listening to a story that was read aloud.

This week we will:

• Identify and practice words with long i (ide) patterns. In addition to the -ide pattern we will also practice spelling the words: they, what and saw.
• Create circle maps about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln
• Compare and contrast the two presidents
• Write a nonfiction text piece about one of the presidents we learned about
• Continue working on animal slideshows
• Continue to represent numbers to 40 as tens and ones.
• With numbers to 40 we will add one more, one less, ten more, ten less.
• Compare numbers to 40 using greater than and less than terms as well as knowing that a number with more tens will be larger than a number with less tens.
