This week we are learning  fractions. – Braden


New spelling words were written in planners today. Also, math homework (fraction and coin review) as well as a new fluency poem came home today.

There is an early release day Wednesday at 11:30! Please make sure to mark that on your calendar.

We are writing some fun poetry in class. It will start coming home soon for you to read! Please keep reading every night!

Thursday, February 4th


Progress reports came home today in your child’s folder. Please look over those. They do not need to be returned. However, if you have any questions, you can always email or call me.

We will take our spelling test in the morning after our weekly CHAMPs assembly. And, just so you will know, our class CHAMPs assembly isn’t until May. I will let you know the exact date closer to time.

We are working hard on subtraction with regrouping. We practice daily. Next week we will work on mixed addition and subtraction with regrouping.

As we wrote in our planner today, almost all fairy tales are complete. They are great stories! The Wee Deliver Postal Service started Monday. During writing time and at our writing station, the students have an opportunity to write letters to any student in Kindergarten, First, and Second grade. They are enjoying writing to friends and receiving letters back in the mail!

A reminder that we will be out of school the next two Mondays. Monday, the 8th, is a teacher training day. Monday, the 15th, is a holiday in observance of President’s Day.

Finally, a letter came home today with information about our Valentine’s party. It is next Friday, February 12th, from 12:00-1:00. We can’t wait to celebrate! We hope you can join us for our fun!

I hope you have a fantastic day!

We had early release today. At stations today we had fun doing stations. Today I especially  had fun doing genius hour. I did voki. I did a bulldog. It was a girl. – Sophie


Tomorrow is the last day to send in the order form if you would like to buy a book from the author that is coming to read to us on Friday! Friday is also the 100th day of school! We are working really hard on our fairy tales in writing and subtraction with regrouping in math!

Today we learned how to  borrow with tens and ones. – Marlee


A couple of reminders: Tomorrow we do not have a spelling test. We will get new words next week! An orange note is coming home in your child’s folder about upcoming and important dates for our campus!

This week we have started our journey on subtraction with regrouping! We will take it very slow and work through the process a lot. In the future you will see regrouping homework come home.

We have read fables this week. Ask your child which fable was their favorite and the lesson they learned from it!

This morning we are going to read a different kind of version for the three little pigs also we are going to go to the library. – Jaaliyah


We have settled right back into our school routine and have been learning a lot of new things!

Last week we read and compared different versions of the fairy tale Cinderella. This week we are reading versions of The Three Little Pigs. Ask your child to tell you some attributes of a fairy tale!

We started letter writing. The five parts of a letter are the heading (date), greeting, body, closing, and signature. During Writer’s Workshop, students are writing letters to different people.

We are learning how to write contractions. The apostrophe is the key! It takes the place of the missing letters: can+not=can’t  do+not=don’t will+not=won’t.

In math we are practicing addition with regrouping, working on reading data from graphs, and getting ready to start double digit subtraction to prepare for regrouping.

Don’t forget that Monday is a holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Christmas Party and Other Information
