Thank you to all the families that sent in items for our most magnificent thing project.  I will probably be finding google eyes and glitter in the classroom for the next year.  It was a giant mess but they had a lot of fun.
-I have received several emails regarding school being canceled due to cold weather.  I have not yet heard any news but will let you know as soon as I do.
-Please send a healthy snack in for 24 children.
-Are you still interested in helping out in the classroom? Please send me an email if you have a weekly window of time and would like to come in to work with students or prep materials. You must fill out a volunteer application prior to volunteering.
-If you have not yet purchased a ticket for the event “Raise a Glass for Ray”, please do so. It is a wonderful event and all proceeds benefit Ray School.
-Please send your child to school prepared to play outside.  The students love playing in the snow but it’s challenging when they do not have snow pants or warm gloves.  This time of year we need as much outdoor play as possible.
This week we will read I Am Enough and All Are Welcome. We will identify story elements such as characters, setting, character development and author’s purpose. We will use the book to make predictions and inferences. Students will continue to identify character traits that support a growth mind set and perseverance.
Sight Words: review
We will continue How-To writing this week. Students will independently and with partners write step-by-step directions for things they know how to do. We will explore various spellings of the long a sound including a_silent e, ai and ay. We will use our planning sheets to make How-To booklets.
This week we will use pennies to compare numbers. Students will be introduces to the quantity, quantity difference diagrams. Students will continue to practice using the <, > and = symbols. We will practice adding two digit numbers using various tools including the number grid, base ten blocks and pictures.
We will learn more about maps and look at maps of our state, country and earth. We will start to explore light in science using mirrors and flashlights.
