March 27th - 31st
We hope you had a wonderful and relaxing Spring Break!
Our 4th quarter starts now!
Our Learning this Week:
Language Arts: In phonics we will focus on the digraph ‘th’. A digraph is a pair of letters that make a new sound. We will practice reading and spelling lots of new words with this digraph. We have a spelling test on Friday over words ending in the digraoh ‘wh’ that we practiced the week before break. Our sight words for the week are “there”, “use”, and “an.” We will read and learn about the season of Spring. In writing, we will write three sentences sharing about our Spring Break.
Math: This week in math we will subtract a number from 10, identify dozen and half-dozen, and estimate and measure distances using feet. We will have a math fact assessment or written assessment on Friday.
Core: We will wrap up our US Symbols unit by learning about the Statue of Liberty.
*Our 4th Quarter Reading Logs will be handed out this week!
