I debated sending this next week after we get back from break, but I know a few of you like extra time to work on the homework assignments. I also know that some of you won't pull this out of the backpack until Tuesday morning.(I won't look in Noah's bag until Monday night!).
My family cannot shake whatever new germ that we picked up. I hope that everyone feels better soon. I hope that all of you stay well and have a wonderful spring break.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar: Clint and I went to Helena recently to attend a special Ag ceremony (one of his students was among the few honored). We picked up these cute little booklets based on Eric Carle's book. The kids practiced reading them "all" week and then we read to a first grade buddy. It was a lot of fun. The booklet is for them to keep.
Math: We will continue with our time unit. We went up to Mr. Williams' classroom the other day to practice time and money. The 6th graders each had a clock and a pile of change. The 2nd graders circulated around the room and counted their money and told them what the time on their clock was. They all did a great job. We will do it again.
Science: We will continue to study animal habitats.
Chapter Book: We just finished reading The Chocolate Lab. Ask your child about all of the trouble that Cocoa caused. Ask them about the Kunkle family, too.
Reading: We will be reading My Name is Gabrielai. It is a biography.
fluency: we will continue to read and notice where the punctuation is (so that we stop and pause in the appropriate spots)
comprehension: continue to discuss cause and effect
vocab: continue to look at antonyms
vocab words: accent, native, beyond, noticed, create, award, literature, grand, aspire & ACCOLADE (wow).
