A Peek at the Week-January 3rd

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I hope everyone enjoyed their time off!! I am looking forward to getting back to all the smiling faces and wonderful holiday stories!!!

SPELLING-This week we will be starting Unit 13.  This unit continues to focus on the open syllable (a syllable that ends in a vowel). This vowel is very proud and can run a long way and therefore says its name or a long sound. We will also learn that when the a is open (as in the words ago, across, etc.) it often has the short u sound. 

We will be working on unit 13 for 2 weeks.  Ten words will be tested this week and ten next week.

  1. ago
  2. across
  3. along
  4. alone
  5. arrived
  6. amaze
  7. students
  8. equal
  9. total
  10. finally

MATH-Starting the week we will be reviewing for the Unit 4 test that is planned for Wednesday. Unit 5 will be taught out of order because part of unit 5 is on the 2nd quarterly exam which we will have to test before the unit is finished.  The report card exam will be tested Thursday January 20th. Look for review sheet a few days before.

Science-We will be starting a new science unit on weather this week.  The children will be learning about different types of severe weather,  cloud formations, and the water cycle. We will also be tracking our weather and temperature as a class.

Field Trip-The Troy Historical Museum trip is next Thursday. Please make sure to send in payment for the trip if you have not done so yet.

A look ahead-There are quite a few days off in January due to MLK holiday and records day for report cards that will be coming out at the end of the month.
