A note from Ms. Poteet…
It was great to have a chance to talk to several of you about your children last week.  I am always so tickled to reflect on how far they have all come in the past months.  And now we have less than 50 days to go.  Unbelievable!  I will visit with more parents this coming Wednesday.  If you did not get a conference, it’s not too late.  Please call or e-mail me about available times and days.  Phone conferences are also an option.

Homework: Tomorrow, you will see a page entitled “Family Celebrations.” This is a page for our “All About Me” books that we our working on in class.  At home, I’d like you, as a family, to draw and write about one family celebration.  This could be a holiday, or any special event that you have as a family.  Please turn these in by Monday, March 18th.  Our class writing celebration will be the last day before Spring Break, March 29th at 12:45. Please look for an invitation this week.

 Field Trip: Tomorrow is our trip to the Louisville Auditorium to see “The Three Little Pigs”.  Please have your child wear their orange class t-shirts.  Also, send a packed lunch.  We will be eating in the classroom, and this will make things easier for all of us!

Dates to Remember
·         March 12th: Field Trip to see The Three Little Pigs
·         March 20th: Early Release Day
·         March 29th: Writing Celebration at 12:45

What are we learning?

Reading Workshop
This week we are working on asking questions while reading.  We will focus on asking who, what, when, where, and why questions.

Writing Workshop
We are continuing to write our All About Me Books.  We will write in our Family Journals on Friday.

Word Study
This week, we will explore short I chunks (-im, -in, -ing, -it).  We will also learn how to read and write these words that will be added to our Word Wall: into, put, over.  Have your child sing you the songs for these words.

We are working on place value of numbers 11-19.  

Social Studies
We are learning about American Symbols and Celebrations.  This week we are focusing on the American Flag.
