Dear Room 114 Families, January 30, 2017
There are several notes/reminders for the week.
- Please, please, please join us for Raise a Glass for Ray at the Promontory on February 2nd at 6pm. This was an awesome event last year and all proceeds go to Ray School. It’s a great opportunity to meet other families and have a night out. More information is found on the Ray School website.
- Please make sure your child completes their Friday letter at home. Students have ten minutes in the morning to begin them but many do not finish in this time. Encourage them to write with lots of details and ask them questions about their week if they are stuck.
THIS WEEK IN:
Students received a new list of words and are completing sorting activities throughout the week during Daily 5 to prepare for their spelling test on Friday. Sort and Write, Word Hunt and Speed Sort.
Sight Words: Way, could, people, my, than
Vocabulary: Frazzled, spree, havoc, quest, gawk
This week we will read Ada Twist Scientist. We will be reading books that celebrate uniqueness and perseverance.
This week we will have a writing celebration to end How-To writing. We will begin writing all about books. The final project for this unit will be a black history report.
In Math, we will practice measuring crooked lines. We will also continue to compare objects using greater than, less than and equal to.
Sound and Light, Oh My! This week we complete the sound portion of the unit and move on to light next week. Students will make instruments and identify high and low pitch.
This week we will finish our family traditions unit. We will put together our family traditions books. Thank you for helping with this activity at home.
