Week 27–3/9/20

March 8, 2020 by Sara Peixoto

Wow! I cannot believe that this is our last week before Spring Break! Absolutely crazy to think about how quickly our year is going! Please try to plan to come and watch our class present their slideshows this Thursday at 1:30 in the lunchroom! They have worked so hard creating these and I am truly amazed at their work!


  • 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—No homework on Thursday, March 12th due to Spring Break.

Last week we:

  • Identified and practiced words with the long o (-one) pattern and “all”, “where”, and “of”.
  • Learned that root words are the basic part of a word. For example–happy is the root word in the word unhappy
  • Discussed and began to understand what a prefix and suffix are and how they change the meaning of a root word.
  • Continued to practice adding commas in the written date as well as when listing items in a series.  
  • Added transitions to our slideshow presentations and began practicing presenting them.
  • Began to learn about and started writing poetry.
  • Enjoyed reading many Dr. Suess books to celebrate his birthday and Read Across America Week. 
  • Celebrated the 100th day of school with many fun activities!
  • Added and subtracted 1,2, or 3 from a two digit number (without regrouping) using strategies such as counting on or back.
  • Practiced making a ten to add on.


  • Continue determining the root word of a word and assess on this standard.
  • Review that prefixes and suffixes change the meaning of words.
  • Continue to practice adding commas in the written date as well as when listing items in a series. 
  • Practice presenting our animal slideshows and wrap up this project by presenting to parents and other classes.
  • Author our own color poems, -ing poems, and “I like…” poems.
  • Continue to read more favorite books by Dr. Suess!
  • Take a word study assessment on -one words.
  • Add a two digit number to a one digit number by decomposing to make the next ten. Students have been working hard to decompose a one digit number to make a ten…this week we will be using that same concept and applying it when adding a two digit number to a one digit number.
