Dear Room 115 Families,

There are several notes/reminders for the week.

  • Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. If your child is choosing to hand out cards please make sure they have enough for all 24 students.
  • Friday is the 100th day of school. Directions went home last week for the 100th day project. Thanks to all of the families that contributed to the 100 Day Trail Mix Project. We will also be making Snow Cones and watching a fun movie at the end of the day in honor of filling Our Awesome Class chart. If you are interested in helping make snow cones at 2:30pm, please let me know.
  • This Thursday is our Black History Celebration.   The event is from 5 to 8 at night. Additional information was sent home last week.
  • Thanks to all the families that contributed snack for February!

Students received a new list of words LAST WEEK and are completing sorting activities throughout the week during Daily 5 to prepare for their spelling test on Friday. Sort and Write, Word Hunt and Speed Sort.

This week we will read Come On, Rain.  We will be reading books that celebrate uniqueness and perseverance.

This week we continue our All About writing. I have attached the goals and rubric for this unit. The final project for this unit will be a black history report. More information about this will go home next week.

In Math, we will begin unit 6. We will practice telling time and continue to work on place value.

Sound and Light, Oh My!  This week we will begin the light portion of our unit. Last week we finished up some activities I had hoped to complete the week before.

This week we began our unit on Then and Now. Students will be questioning family members throughout the unit. We will start the unit with a conversation about what students thought life was like when their parents were in first grade.
