News: Thank you to everyone who helped on our field trip last week!  It was a great success and so much learning and fun was had.  Our holiday party is Friday at 10:15.  Remember your $5 gift for a boy or girl, wrapped for the party.  See the previous post for more information.

Language Arts  Last week we worked on long o sounds and producing middle sounds in CVC words.  I will be introducing silent e this week to go with our study of long vowels.  This will be for the purpose of explaining why they say their name and for those who are ready, for writing as well.  Homework for long i and a will be coming home tomorrow with an explanation of silent e. Please return by Friday.

Math/Science/Social Studies  We are working in Module 3 on measurement.  We are comparing objects length and height using words longer than, shorter, than and taller than instead of bigger.  Please try to use this vocabulary at home as well.  We are having a Super Science Day on Wednesday, December 19th.   We would like some helpers to come in about 1:30 to help us with our 5 senses final project.  We will need 1 more volunteer to help for about 45 minutes.  Please respond to this post if you are able to come and run a station.  In Social Studies we completed our economics learning.  We finished our assessment today as well.

Holiday Party This year the children decided to use habit 2, Begin With the End in Mind and planned a holiday party.  The decided to participate in a holiday gift exchange at our class party.  It will take place Friday, December 21st  from 10:15-11.  If you would like to participate, the children are asked to bring in 1 $5 gift, for a girl or a boy in the morning.  They will all be placed in 2 piles and the children will pick from the girl’s pile or the boy’s pile respectively.  It is not mandatory.  Those who bring a gift will pick a gift.  Please wrap the present, but do not write who it is from on the tag, simply write boy or girl.  We will all pick and open them at the same time in a circle.

Our field trip is this Thursday.  Please send children in a Lindbergh or red shirt if possible, with tennis shoes and comfortable clothes for playing.  Have your child come to school with a bag lunch, no glass or containers that need to be returned.  Remember they will be running and playing right after eating, so pack a light lunch.  Chaperones who signed up may ride the bus or drive separately, either way, no siblings.  Chaperones, Please arrive at 9 and sign in at the office.

Language Arts  Last week we continued working on opinion writing and learning how to edit our writing to make it better.  We added editing for capitals and missing words to our chart as well.  We began to listen for middle sounds in words and continued our work with rhyming words.  We also introduced long vowel sounds with long A.

Math/Science/Social Studies  We completed Module 2 on shapes and did the assessment.  We began Module 3 on measurement and I sent the Module 1-2 class books home.  In Science we explored using all of our 5 senses to figure out the mystery item under the bin. We are havaing a Super Science Day on Wednesday, December 19th.   We would like some helpers to come in about 1:30 to help us with our 5 senses final project.  We will need 5 volunteers to help for about 45 minutes.  Please respond to this post if you are able to come and run a station.  In Social Studies we used a visual to determine the amount of sugar in the foods we eat.  To see the pile of sugar for 5-21 grams of sugar was astounding.  We also discussed goods as things we make our buy.  We introduced services as  something that is done for us, like teachers, firefighters, and dentists.

Letters Of The Week:  WE ARE DONE!!  We will begin our study specifically of the vowels and how they make 2 sounds, short and long.  Long vowels say their names.  Books will be returned this week.  Look for a page of vowel sounds to be completed and returned by Friday.

Leader In Me 

We had our first class lesson last week focused on Habit 2,  Begin with the End in Mind.  We watched a quick video clip and discussed how the charter needed to have a plan to reach his goals.  We then all wrote our own goals to work toward at school.  Setting family goals will help continue the leadership responsibilities we are learning about here at school.

Language Arts  Last week we worked on opinion writing and learning how to edit our writing to make it better.  We stared our chart, adding editing for spaces and capital letters at the beginning of or sentences.  We also worked on changing ending sounds to create new words.
