Week 24!

February 17, 2020 by Brittany Wilbanks

I hope you all had a long wonderful weekend! I will be sending out a link to sign up for conferences soon. Please sign up for a time slot so we can discuss your child’s progress together.


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


  • 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.
  • Asked and answered questions after listening to a read aloud. 
  • Took a word study assessment on -ate words and also was, saw, and are.
  • Compared and contrasted two non-fiction texts with the same topic. 
  • Began creating animal slideshows 
  • Determined the characters, setting, beginning, middle and end after listening to a story that was read aloud.
  • Counted and ordered numbers to 40. 
  • Represented a two digit number in tens and ones

This week we will:

  • Wrap up learning about conjunctions and combining sentences
  • Identify and practice words with long i (ide) patterns. In addition to the -ide pattern we will also practice spelling the words “they” and “what”.  
  • Continue asking and answering questions about a text
  • 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. 


  • 2/20/20 – End of the 2nd Trimester
  • 2/28/20 – Parent Teacher Conferences
  • 3/16/20 – Spring Break starts
  • 3/23/20 – Students return to school

For a clip up tomorrow morning (2/18/20), write down one book you read over the weekend with your child and have them bring it in tomorrow morning and give it to me!
