Happy Monday! Can you believe the weather we are supposed to have this week? Maybe spring is going to come early after all 🙂 Here is what you need to know this week:
What We Are Learning:
English: We are working on prepositions this week and how to find a prepositional phrase in a sentence.
Math: This week we are working on graphing. We will be doing some graphing with Skittles tomorrow and taking a class survey too. We will have a short quiz over graphing later this week. We also have a timed test today.
Reading: This week we are focusing on facts and opinions in a story, and learning how to see what a story is about based on a short summary, the title, and the cover.
Social Studies: We are wrapping up our unit over features in our state and mapping this week. We will be taking a quiz on Thursday.
Bible: We are continuing to learn about the life of Joseph. We do have a Bible Verse due on Wednesday.
Spelling: We do have a test this week on THURSDAY! The words will be focusing on different prefixes.
Writing: We are continuing to work on Alphabet books. I finalized topics with students today. If you could make sure they bring in books by Wednesday that would be great!

End of the Grading Period: Thursday marks the end of the 3rd grading period. Can you believe we are 3/4 of the way through the school year?! Grade cards will be going home before Spring Break.
