Forest Science and Paper Making / Update

Last week we have learned about Forest Science and Paper Making!  Students were introduced to the two kinds of tree families:  Coniferous and Broadleaf.  We learned about the gifts that trees give us and ways we can help the earth.  Last Friday, we were busy making paper.  Wow!  What an awesome memorable experience for the kiddos.

In math we have been working on writing teen equations. 
Example. 10 + 3 = 13 

In addition, we have learned to solve addition and subtraction equations. Example:  5 + 2 = 7.     
                                   5 - 3 = 2

In writing we continue to work on writing stories using spaces, capital at the beginning, and punctuation at the end of the sentence. The students are making wonderful progress in writing.  I love this time of the year.  The student can write some high frequency words and sound out the words using their inventing spelling.  I will be sending home ALL their writing samples at the end of the year.  

In reading, we continue to practice, practice, practice.  Learning several new high frequency words and CVC words they are beginning to sound out.  Keep up the good work reading to your child each night.

We are need of snacks!  If you have not sent any in for awhile, please consider sending in snacks.  The students love goldfish, animal crackers, pretzels, graham crackers.  Thanks in advance:)

Here are a few adorable pictures of our paper making we did on Friday. 




Thanks again for all your support this year!

Update

We have been very busy reviewing classroom rules and getting back in the swing of things after Spring Break. The students are making wonderful progress in reading, writing and math!  It is such an amazing time of the year admiring how much growth the students have made since the first day of school.  The next several weeks will fly by.  Please keep up the wonderful work helping your child with their homework and daily reading.

To put a smile on your face I am adding a cute picture of our directed drawings of our bunnies!  They turned out adorable.  Thank you again for your continued support making this another great year!

 We are growing grass hair!!!  I will let the kids give themselves a hair cut before I send them home:))
 We just finished our unit on Aquaponics.  IT IS SUCH AN AMAZING PROCESS:)

Update






We have been very busy over the last couple of weeks.  Book Character day and Across America and our Read-A-Thon has kept us on our toes!  As we move into March we will continue to learn more heart words, writing more narrative stories and finishing up our math unit on Addition and teen numbers.
  
Next week we will be writing stories to our friendly little leprechaun, Patrick.  Patrick will be leaving clues searching for the pot of gold.  The students are becoming excellent writers.  I am impressing with their ability to sound out words, start with a capital letter and end their sentences with a punctuation mark.  

Upcoming
  • No school tomorrow, Friday, March 10th for report card preparation.  Report cards should come home next week.
  • Friday, March 17th is BINGO NIGHT.  I will be putting Bingo cards in your child's homework folder on Monday. 
  • Friday, March 24th, we will be celebrating our Read-A-Thon!  Thank you parents for all your support with our Read-A-Thon.  We ended up reading over 7,000 minutes!  Way to go Room 2.  On Friday we will also have an ALL pop day! Great way to head into Spring Break.
