Class pictures and Individual pictures will be taken on Wednesday, February 20th. If you don't want your child to have their photo taken, please be sure to sign the orange slip attached to the picture envelope and check NO photo or they will take their photo and send them home. You may pay online or send in the picture envelope with a check for either a class picture or individual photo.
In Wonders spelling this week we are learning words with -a, -ai,-ay such as mail and day making the long a sound. At reading groups, we will be asking and answering questions on our text and discussing the plot and sequencing the events of the story. In writing, we want to encourage kids to use proper word choice and learn contractions.
In GoMath, we will be starting chapter 8 on two digit addition and subtraction. Your child should be fluent in math facts to 10 and 20 or this chapter will be more challenging. Please encourage your child to use Xtramath to increase their recall on fact fluency. You will know your child is fluent if they can look at a math fact and answer within 3 seconds. If they can answer in that amount of time, they are fluent. If they can not and need to count using their fingers or use another strategy, they are not fluent and need additional practice at home.
Have a great week!
