We will have no school on Friday, February 15th nor Monday, February 18th due to a teacher inservice day and President's Day.
We said goodbye to Mrs. Z last Friday, and we hope to see her towards the end of the school year when she returns from her extended vacation. She brought so many fun and creative ideas to the classroom.
Don't forget the PowWow is Saturday, February 23rd. I believe Mrs. Clemens is collecting money for the classroom's raffle basket. Feel free to send any money for the basket to school in an envelope with Mrs Clemens name on it.
In Language Arts, we are almost halfway through our how-to presentations. Everyone is doing a wonderful job! We are also finishing up our Biography genre unit with our Biocubes. Our read aloud, Wonder, should be finished this week. Then we'll begin reading, The One and Only Ivan. Many students like to follow along with their own copy of the book, so you may want to try to reserve a copy from the library.
In Word Study, we are finishing up homographs and will beginning prefixes, root words and suffixes.
We're about halfway through Topic 8 in Math, Dividing with 2 Digit Divisors. I think we'll be ready for our test over the topic on Wednesday, February 20th.
Our specials this week are: Monday - Music Tuesday - Art Wednesday - PE Thursday - Library Friday - Music.
