News Letter

Dear Parent,

It was wonderful seeing all the parents at our Annual Auction.  It was a fantastic event!  Thank you to all the parents who helped and especially thank you to Mrs. Bounds for organizing this event.

Please note that this weeks story  How Groundhog’s Garden Grew and our vocabulary words are different then the ones listed on ThinkCentral.

This week we start spring uniforms.  On another note we are running short of pencils.  If anyone would like to donate pencils to the class it would be appreciated.

This is the final week for our unit on changes.  We have read many interesting selections and talked about how they relate to the Big Idea, “Living things  change over time.”  The living things in question this week are plants.  We are going to explore the question “What steps would you take to plant a garden?”  In the Fantasy story How Groundhog’s Garden Grew, we will find out how Squirrel helps Groundhog with his vegetable garden.  In the informational text Super Soil, we’ll learn how soil helps plants grow.

This week our phonic skills words with/aw/: au, aw, al, o, a.  Our vocabulary strategy is using context.  Our comprehension skill sequence of events -tell the order in which things happen. Our Comprehension strategy is Monitor/clarify-find ways to figure out what doesn’t make sense.   Math we will continue our unit on metric measurement.  In Religion we will continue our Family Life program.  Science we will continue our unit on Health and Hygiene and begin to prepare to present information to the Pre-Kindergarten students on health.

If you haven’t already please return the permission slip and money.  Thank you.

Have a wonderful week,

Mrs. Rosenfelder
