Hat Day: Friday the 11th and the 18th are Hat Days. The kids can wear a hat all day. They must pay $1 for the privilege. The money will be used as a fundraiser for a girl in Havre. At the time of this letter I didn't have all the details, but I know that her principal is organizing with many Montana schools.
School Pictures: The spring pictures have arrived. They are in Ms Maureen's office. Please stop in and have a look. If you like them you can buy as few or as many photo sheets as you like. Some of the money will of course benefit the school. I seriously saw some cute ones. I don't know if I should be happy or disappointed - one of my kids took an adorable picture and the other one did not!
P.S. - the pictures should be available to look at for a week or 2.
Math: We will be reading and interpreting tables, picture graphs and vertical/horizontal bar graphs.
Reading: Our next story was a fan favorite last year. It is a fiction story called The Bee (it is about....bees!).
phonics/spelling - /oo/ sound
grammar - past-tense verbs
comprehension - practice summarizing
vocab- thickens, plentiful, crowd (verb form), sealed, carefully, attack, pattern, disappear, role & diligent
A.R.: We participated last week in the Reading Coast to Coast project. Last Friday all of the kids took an A.R. test. Students across the U.S. were encouraged to do so. There were over 3 million A.R. tests passed nationally - WOW!
Social Studies: We will continue to work understanding what good citizens do.
Science: We will learn about bees.
