I hope you all had a great Easter weekend and enjoyed our shortened school week. Speaking of short - only a few weeks of school left! While it is tempting to think nothing will happen so attending school is not important, we actually do quite a bit at the end of the school year. Of course, there is always reading and math learning. We will be doing some research projects as well. And finally, there is the ever present testing. We will be doing reviews for our post tests, plus Dibels and progress monitoring. We will also have fun activities like a trip to the Safford pool on the 16th of May.

Lots of stuff to fit into a very short few weeks. Keep reading!!

We had such a wonderful field trip to SeaLife Aquarium and Legoland Discovery Center March 9. Then a, hopefully, restful Spring Break. But now it is time to get back to work!

We will be working on word problems in math the next few weeks, along with adding fluently within 20.

Reading is focusing on poetry and letter sounds, with a trip into multi-paragraph passages.

We will be enjoying a trip to Asia as well, as we study China, Japan and India.

This last quarter will be so much fun, and quickly fly by.

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Have a happy long weekend! With only 3 days next week, we will just review spelling this week. Long a, e, i, and o words:

We will also focus on Presidents Day themes all week in reading, writing, and social studies. PE has been moved to Wednesday afternoons, so dress appropriately!
