Have a nice weekend!

I was very proud to hear that the kids did a good job for the sub
yesterday. Today we completed several reading worksheets and math
pages. We also visited the book fair and made treasure maps with our
reader pals. Talk to you on Monday!

Tuesday Already!

Wow the weeks are going by so fast! Today the kids read a take-home book
called "Gus". This is my favorite book of the year! I was really
impressed with how well they sounded out words. We are starting addition
in math this week. Today, we put groups of two or three together. I
can't believe how well the kids are getting this concept. In unit today
we discussed maps. We colored Minnesota so they could start to recognize
the shape of our state. We also went to the computer lab today. Tomorrow
we will continue with reading three-letter words, addition, and also go
to the library.

End of the Week

It is the end of the school week for the kids and we finished the week
with a busy day. We completed several activities about rabbits and eggs,
which were sent home with your child. We finished our quarter testing
and we are ready for quarter four (wow!). Next week, we will re-start
groups and centers. Our spelling words for next week are 'she, small,
too, this'. We will discuss maps; how to use and make them. Have a great

Hoppy Tuesday!

Wow, the kids had energy today! We were able to use that energy and get
a lot done at school. We completed workbook pages (they did a good job
sounding out 'camel'), painted paper eggs, colored some bunny math
pages, went to the computer lab, and wrote numbers 0-100. Tomorrow is
the last day of school for the week and library day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

We made our leprechaun hats today and wore them all day long. We
completed a few St. Patrick day activities as well as made our Easter
bunny bags. We took our spelling test today and I am very excited to
tell you that everyone got four out of four! The kids are doing a great
job with the words. We will not have a test this week. I forgot to send
home the homework on Wednesday, so I will just send one home this
Wednesday. Talk at you tomorrow!

Go Bombers!

What a fun day! The kids did a great job cheering the team on at the
pepfest. I hope some of you can make it to the game tomorrow. My
daughter and I will be there too. This morning, we worked in our
workbooks, practiced counting, and colored a leprechaun. Don't forget to
check the scores to see if we have school Friday. If not, talk to you on

March if Flying By!

The weeks are flying by and it will soon be April! Today, the kids worked on a new book called "I am Lucky Because". This will come home to each family soon. We also finished our last day of centers until after Spring break. We have the pep fest tomorrow at the high school, so we will be out of the room from 1:00 until about 2:30. Go Bombers!

Gotta Love Mondays!

The kids did a great job today. We started testing for the third
quarter and they are doing wonderfully! I will email results to those
I have addresses for soon. We started some St. Patrick activities and,
ofcourse, practiced reading. Reminders were sent out today about us
not having school on Thursday. Watch the game or the news to see about

Happy Friday!

The kids chose their schedule today, and they chose to not have centers.
So, we had our spelling test (which went great), talked about meat and
plant-eating dinosaurs, read stories, and talked about the word
"probably). This afternoon we worked with our reader pals on our "In
like a lion, out like a lamb" projects. Talk to you on Monday!

What little smarties!

I cannot believe how well this class is writing! I seemed to be
impressed everyday with how well they are learning the rules of reading
and writing. As families, you are doing a wonderful job of preparing
your child for first grade. Today, we played a few word family games
(Cookie Jar and Ant Hill), where the kids needed to find all the _op,
_et, _in, words and place them in the appropriate spot. They did very
well with this. We also played a probability game with a paperclip.
Tomorrow, we will have reader pals and take our spelling test (like,
has, in, it).

Happy Wednesday!

We did a lot of writing today. We practiced sentences with spaces and
lowercase letters. We also graphed how many children have pets or no
pets. After library checkout, we watched a little of Charlotte's Web. We
will be reading the chapter book soon.

We got a lot done today. The kids have been really practicing their
journal writing. We are trying to remember upper and lowercase letters
in the correct spots, spaces between words, and an ending mark at the
end. I am very impressed with the kids' writing. We also had a visit
from Breanna's mom and baby brother. He is a cutie! Tomorrow is library
day and we will be practicing graphing in math.
