We have been working on telling time. We need to be able to tell time in 5 minute intervals-and right now it is a little challenging for most of us. Thanks to Mrs. Short for finding a time game!!! Just click on the picture below to get to the website. Once there, click on level 3, that is the level that has the 4 different types of time that we practiced in class.
Spelling- This week we are continuing learning about the magnetic silent e. When a silent e is added to the end of a closed syllable, it gives away its power and makes the vowel in front say its name. The e, however, stays silent.
This weeks words are:
- someone TRICKy word cue: some + one
- clothes TRICKy word cue: the silent e makes the vowel long and gives a voiced sound to the /th/
- whose TRICKy word cue: spell who + se
Conferences- Conferences are set for Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon and evening. I am looking forward to meeting with all families to discuss your childs progress.
Half Day Thursday- Children will be released at 12:00
2nd grade Feast-We will be having our 2nd grade feast on Monday, November 22nd. Please look for donation sheets to come home this Monday. I am also asking that all families send in a cup of cut up vegetables for our soup that we will be making Monday morning.
