A Peek at our Week:

Reading: Students are practicing how to read in bigger scoops, taking sneak peeks before reading a new book and choosing how to read the book.

Writing: Printing practice; Writer’s Workshop

MATH: We continue with Unit1. We will complete this unit on Wednesday. Our review unit test will be on Friday. Things to practice at home:  10 more than 25/10 less than 25, equal to, simple addition/subtraction  to 10, skip counting and telling time to the hour and half hour.

Science:  Our experiment has been extended due to unexpected circumstances.

Some students have gone home with a hershey kiss today.   Students are asked challenging questions throughout the week and sometimes they receieve a “kiss for their brain”.  It’s a little reward for taking the challenge.  All students end up receiving one by the end of the month.    They are not allowed to eat it until they tell you why they received it.

If you read this newsletter by THURSDAY evening, please send me an email. Your child will receive a sparkle to add to the class bucket. As you know, sparklers are a BIG deal in our class. 🙂

Have a Blessed Week,

Mrs. Vazquez
