Thank you for all the thoughtful flowers and gifts!  It was so kind and generous of all of you!  Thank you to our parent volunteers who came in to help last week!  A big thank you to the PTA also for the lunch, breakfast, snack cart etc.. They really know how to make us feel special!

Language Arts

Last week we continued working on ending sounds like ng and nk along with short and long vowel discrimination.  This skills needs work in isolation so giving your child words to read out of the context of books is a good practice.  Any words mixed that are cvc; consonant, vowel, consonant like bat and cvce; words with a silent e like cave are good to practice.  Fluency is improved when words come naturally.

Math/Science/Social Studies

In Math we are continuing in Module 5 with practice being able to break apart teen numbers into 10 and some more, as well as reading and writing teen numbers.  Continue to work on counting forward and back from any number.  Even though the unit with adding and subtracting to 10 is over, fluency may not be there yet.  Our end of the year goal is fluency to 5; which means seeing 3+2 and saying 5 within a few seconds, and solving addition and subtraction number stories to 10.  Lots of practice is needed to master this skill regularly.  In Science we started our plant experiment, looking at how water and sun effect plants, charting our information.  We also examined the parts of a plant.   In Social Studies we began a discussion of taking a stand on an issue.  We thought about some school rules and started writing our opinion of the issue like wearing flip-flops in school and chewing gum.  We had a discussion with 2 sides to the issue and them wrote our reasons.

Language Arts

Last week we continued our practice of identifying similarities and differences between 2 texts with words and pictures.   We used fiction and tried to go beyond the characters and authors.  We also went back to looking at blends and digraphs but focused on them being at the end of words instead of only at the beginning.

Math/Science/Social Studies

In Math we began module 5 with practice grouping objects to ten.  We have end of the unit/year goals of counting to 100 by ones and tens, writing numbers 0-20 correctly, so a focus on teen numbers and what they mean, 10 and some more, and being able to break apart teen numbers into 10 and some more.  We will work on counting forward and back from any number.  Even though the unit with adding and subtracting to 10 is over, fluency may not be there yet.  Our end of the year goal is fluency to 5; which means seeing 3+2 and saying 5 within a few seconds, and solving addition and subtraction number stories to 10.  Lots of practice is needed to master this skill regularly.  In Science we finished our animal discussion and moved on to plants.  We will be looking at what they need to survive, so far examining sunlight.  In Social Studies we discussed symbols of our country and made flags.  We also looked at who were the leaders of our city, state, and country, naming their title and reviewing that these were the people we vote for and why it is important to vote. We discussed that these leaders do not work alone.

News Chatting with the Superintendent will be held tonight at Lindbergh at 6 p.m. in the cafeteria.  The book fair will be open this week Tuesday- Thursday from 12-4.  We will be going to the preview today and the children can shop in the afternoon when they return an envelope with their name, money, and list, Tuesday-Thursday.  The children came home with a note and envelope today from the homeroom moms in their backpacks.  I also need 20 egg cartons by Wednesday if you have any to spare!

Last week we worked on author’s purpose; why the author writes the book.  So far we have learned that authors write to inform us and tell facts and to entertain us and have us enjoy the book.  We also practiced identifying similarities and differences between 2 texts with words and pictures.   The children did a great job writing and illustrating books about their moms for Mother’s Day!  Thank you to all the moms who took time out of their busy day to come.  The children were so proud to share the poems, song, and books they wrote with you!

Math/Science/Social Studies

In Math we finished Module 4. We will begin assessing today on adding and subtracting fluently to 5, adding and subtracting with number stories to 10, adding and subtracting 0, writing number bonds, and writing number sentences. Even though the unit is over, fluency may not be there yet.  Our end of the year goal is fluency to 5; which means seeing 3+2 and saying 5 within a few seconds.  Lots of practice is needed to master this skill regularly.  In Science we discovered all the things animals need to live, food, shelter/a place to live/ habitat, water, and air.  We studied and compared different animal habitats as well.  In Social Studies we reviewed voting taking class votes, and laws, including writing a class constitution.

Last week we worked on 3 letter blends blends. We are trying to work on sounding out an “str..” blend word combing those three sounds like str, spl, spr, scr in the word as one chunk for fluency practice, instead of separately; such as /spl/ /ash/ for splash. While we were reading informational text, we were identifying key details that will help us identify the author’s purpose and why he wrote what he did.  In Writing Workshop we began our animal research papers.  We had the help of moms on Monday and 5th grade on Tuesday to collect and write facts.  We worked on getting our details into sentences on Wednesday and Thursday, along with editing.  With the help of our homeroom moms, we have all the information typed and into books.  Our next step will be illustrations!

Math/Science/Social Studies

In Math we are working in Module 4. We are working on writing and completing number sentences for number stories to 10. Keep up with daily math homework. These short activities reinforce our daily work in class and solidifies the foundations the children will need later in the year and next year in math.  In Science we began to look at what animals need to live with an investigation on our pets, looking to make connections to what all of our pets needed.   In Social Studies we continued to talk about laws we needed to follow.
