Mrs. Borrow's Broadcast
March 29, 2018
Most all students are running out of supplies. Crayons are gone, markers are lost, and we have no glue sticks!
Please Help... We are also running low on disinfectant wipes and paper towel; I am praying the flu season has left our classroom and we can begin enjoying a healthy spring!
Please remember to enter the building through the front door if your child is late for school. All parents and visitors should check in with the office. Students and parents should not be entering the building through the kindergarten/day care entrance unless they have a child in those areas. Thank you for your assistance in practicing rules that we have in place to keep our school community safe.
I hope you have a blessed Easter that is filled with the peace of our Saviour's LOVE!
Next week's reading selection is A Friend for Little Bear. A little bear living alone on an island must decide what is truly important and what is not. The children will see how a decision can open the door to a new path.
We will continue Show and Tell until the end of the year!
The students will have a "show and tell day. Your child may bring in something they would like to show to the class. They should be able to tell why their item is special to them. Show and Tell dates: Monday: Maya, Gabby, Vivian, Alayja, Jamel; Tuesday: Laelle, Lydia, Ben, Lauryn; Wednesday: Zaiah, Javier, Nadia, Kaia, Thursday: Jayden, Sierra, Avery, Knox.
Phonics: The students will work on the long "o" vowel sound.
Spelling: We will work with the spelling words during the week. The words are included in the reading selection for the week. If your child studies the spelling words they will be more successful reading the selection for the week as well as the leveled readers. The pretest will be given on Wednesdays and the final test will be given on Fridays.
SPELLING SENTENCES: For the final quarter of the school year the students will be completing required spelling sentences. This will help prepare the students for spelling in the second grade. There will be two sentences each week. Each sentence is worth 3 points:
1 point=correct spelling of all words in the sentence
1 point=capital letters when appropriate (beginning of each sentence)
1 point=correct punctuation
Spelling sentences for this week:
1. The moon will be over the roof soon.
2. My friend called the zoo.
Spelling list: roof, soon, moon, fool, cool, zoo, these, called, friend
For an EXTRA CHALLENGE: island, sighed, answered
Students are not required to attempt the EXTRA CHALLENGE words, but some students need a challenge. :-)
Math: We will continue working with fact families, count by 10's, and count to 120.
Science: We will continue learning moon facts. We will also learn more about nocturnal animals.
Religion: Have a Blessed Easter!
