Dear Parents and Families,

Thank you to all of the families that came to the Promontory on Thursday for Raise a Glass for Ray. We raised $6,000- almost double of what we raised last year. A special shout out to Owen’s dad, who is a real rock star and entertained us all!

  • Continue to work on high frequency words weekly. Please make sure your child can read all of these words. Students are also encouraged to correctly spell each of these words. Students have their own personal word wall and the class word wall where these words can be found. If students can read these words they will be able to find them on word walls and spell them correctly.
  • Report Cards will be sent home this week. The Report Card should be signed and returned to verify that you have reviewed your child’s progress. Please contact me if you would like to schedule a conference.
  • Thank you to all of the families that have donated snack. Please donate a healthy snack for the month of February.
  • We assessed the students using the initial Words their Way assessment and have regrouped the students accordingly. Your child received a new word list today in their green folder.
  • This week we will have music! We will continue to have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please make sure your child wears/brings gym shoes on those days.

This week we will read Amazing Grace. We will do several comprehension activities as a group and independently to deepen our comprehension. Students will discuss problem and solution and imagine the story told from various characters’ perspectives. In math we will start learning about double-digit addition. Please refrain from teaching your child “to carry the one.” It is important to establish an understanding of place value using modeling before children are taught this procedure. In science we will investigate sound further by making a spoon gong. We will conclude our How-To writing unit with a combined celebration with Ms. Woodbury’s 1st graders. We will continue with informational writing this week by starting an “All About” non-fiction unit. In social studies we will begin our next unit on Families Then and Now.

Have a great week.
