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.

Spotlight Posters/ Read-A-Thon / Book Character Day

Spotlight Posters

For the last several years we have studied a unit on FAMILIES.  I am sending home a SPOTLIGHT poster for you to work on together as a family.  Please take your time with this project.  I will be displaying them in the hallway.  I have many parents over the years comment that they still have their child's poster.  I hope you enjoy working together to make this a special project.  The posters are due on Thursday, March 9th

Read-A-Thon

Wow!!  impressive group of readers.  The final count is not out yet, but we look like we are going to make our goal.  Thanks for our continued support reading to your child.  Today we are just around 5,000 minutes!  Way to go Room 2!
