I have to say I was a little disappointed our snow day was a flop. We have a ton to do this week though so it will be good to get here and get rolling.
LA – We finished our unit on adding ed and ing to verbs. The kids did a great job with this. We are focusing on adding er and est to describing words now.
MATH – We will finish our unit on place value. Our final focus in this area is putting groups of numbers in order from least to greatest and greatest to least. This can be difficult if the kids still do not recognize numbers to 110. If your child does not recognize all these numbers please practice number recognition at home nightly. Tomorrow is the 100th day of school! We have many fun 100th day activities planned! Information went home a couple of weeks ago about our 100th Day Fashion Show. Each child is to design a t-shirt with 100 objects, pictures, stamps, etc. on it for our big fashion show on the red carpet. The kids love a chance to shine and show their moves. Please have your child wear the shirt to school tomorrow with something warm underneath.
SCIENCE – We are finishing our unit on states of matter this afternoon. The concepts inn this unit are tricky so please review at home.
SOCIAL STUDIES – We are studying President’s Day. New this year we are focusing on President’s Washington and Jefferson who were both born in Virginia. We will move on to important African American leaders from Virginia with a focus on Arthur Ashe and Maggie Walker.
Here are some important dates –
Thursday, February 21st – 100th day of school
Friday, February 22nd – Jersey Day – Support your favorite team or a team you are on!
