Week 21 ~ Feb. 5 - Feb. 9, 2018


Don’t forget we will be exchanging Valentines with our classmates on Wednesday, February 14.  A list of classmates went home in the red folder.  Don’t forget to send a snack with your child EVERY day, even if he/she is purchasing a school lunch.  Last thing….start saving and sending in Box Tops again!

This week we will:
  • Learn about savannas, animals and plants that live on savannas and how they survive
  • Find and read many different Power Words
  • Count syllables in 1, 2, 3 or 4 syllable words
  • Decode and spell 1 and 2 syllable words  
  • Use letters and sounds to write our ideas down on paper
  • Blend sounds to read words
  • Remember to use an uppercase letter at the beginning of our sentences and a period at the end 
  • Continue to explore different measuring tools (rulers, thermometers, balance scales, calendars, clocks)
  • Count by 1s, 5s and 10s to 100
  • Count backwards from a given number
  • Explore making groups of 5 and groups of 10 – and counting on from a given number
