January 14, 2013

Just a reminder, we go outside for recess in the winter; please send in gloves and hats on days that are going to be cold!

Please be sure to send a small, peanut free and healthy snack to school with your student each day!  Snack time is about 10 minutes and some of the students are throwing away over half of their snack each day. 

Dates to Remember
·January 21st: No School
·January 30th: Early Release Day

What are we learning?
Reading Workshop
This week the students will learn the term “literary.” Using literary books we are continuing our unit on story elements.   Through reading Curious George stories, we will focus on identifying the problem and solution this week. 

Writing Workshop
Since we are discussing story elements during Reading Workshop we will be writing about the problem and solution within Curious George books.  We will also have our Family Journal at the end of the week!

Word Study
This week, we will explore the short i word families: -ip, -ig, -ill.  Ask your child about the chants for these chunks.  Try to have them tell you words that have these word families!

We will also learn how to read and write these words that will be added to our Word Wall: this, were, what.  Have your child sing you the songs for these words.  Have them write the words in paint, shaving cream, or markers. 

This week we are finishing our introduction unit on addition and subtraction through story problems.  Students will complete a transfer task at the end of the week.

We are going to be studying famous scientist in history.  We learn about the Wright Brothers, Jane Goodall and George W. Carver!
