April 24th-28th 2017

Please make sure to purchase your child’s ASB card a.s.a.p so they can participate in our field trip.  They cost $5.00 and can be purchased in the office.  ASB cards help us pay for the field trip. 

Our kids did so good yesterday with the sub they earned a movie today!! We watched The Lorax today to finish celebrating our earth and talking about taking care of it.  This is something we tried to earn last week but didn’t earn enough compliments to feel our jar but after yesterday they made it!!

I am a few students short of finishing 3rd week progress monitoring this week.  If you have any questions or concerns about where your student is, please get ahold of me and I can tell you exactly where they are and what they need the most help with at home.  These next couple months are very important that we continue to see progress.

-What we’ve been learning- 

Working nicely on all of our work.  As we begin to write more and more our penmanship has started to decrease.  We are really focusing on making sure our writing is nice and neat no matter what we are working on.

Words: Yellow, Blue, Green

Writing:  We are going to continue to work on extending our writing from 1-2 sentences to 2-3.  We will be focusing on this for the next several weeks as this is a big transition and reviews other skills (upper case first letters, ending marks, sounding words out, etc.) while practicing the new skill of extending our thoughts and words. 

Math:  Review addition and subtraction
