News for the Week

It's a short week this week, but it's been crammed full of good stuff! Here are some things we've done:

  • We've been working on telling time to the the five minutes QUICKLY, knowing what a.m. and p.m. is, and understanding what we do at certain times of day. We've also learned how to say times of day multiple ways, such as "quarter after," etc.
  • We've been learning cursive, which is helping our brains develop further (and is quite challenging for some of us!). Read more about why Mrs. Overman is having us do this by clicking HERE.
  • We're doing a new illustration study focusing on the work of Mo Willems (see some of his books HERE, watch an interview with him HERE). Look back at our posts from this past week on our blog and see what we've done!
  • We've continued to do word work as always even though we haven't had a spelling test.

There are lots of important things coming up you need to know:
  • There is no school tomorrow. Happy Easter!
  • Next week is Grandparents' Week. Come eat lunch with us and visit the Book Fair in the Little Theater!
  • Our class will visit the Book Fair on Monday to shop. If your child would like to bring money (less than $20,  please) to spend, that's fine.
  • Next week we will complete our final NWEA tests on the computer on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. There will be no spelling test next week because of these cuts a good hour out of our day.
  • Our first field trip of the spring is Friday, May 9th. We will be going to the high school for Agriculture Day. The students always love this, but since it's only for a small part of the day, we won't be needing chaperones.
  • Toward the end of May we will be riding the Dixie and visiting the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo. More information will be coming home about that in the next two weeks. :)
Have a super weekend!
