May 11, 2018
Looking ahead: We will attend the Holy Redeemer Festival on Friday, June 1st. I will need chaperones for this field trip. More information will be coming home soon. Please let me know if you are available to chaperone.
Reading: We have finished our basal reading series! We will finish the year reading self selected leveled books. We will continue to review all the skills we have learned this year. What a fantastic job the students have done!
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 "ed and ing" endings. We will also work on the digraphs th, wh, sh, and ch.
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. My favorite animal likes to sleep by my bed at night.
2. Why did the children come to school to see my teacher?
We will review spelling words until the end of the year.
who, what, when, where, why, animal, because, children, favorite, friend, night, people, said, school
Math: We are finishing up our unit on graphing. We will begin learning about geometry. The lessons will include: identifying plane shapes, making an orgainzed list, properties of plane shapes, building with shapes, and making new shapes from shapes.
Social Studies: We will learn about ways to stay safe in the summer and learn about a Lego Ocean Mystery.
Religion: We will continue learning about the Holy Spirit and how we are guided each day to do the right thing.
