March Update

All of the children have been very hard at work.  We are always learning many new and exciting things.  This month we will continue our adventure in learning. 

   We started the month off with Dr. Seuss’ Birthday on the 2nd.  We read many of his stories as well as enjoyed some Green Eggs and Ham courtesy of  the PTO.  Yummy!  It was a lot of fun!!        
In the upcoming weeks, the children will continue to learn about:

  • Reviewing vowels
  • Blends
  • Cause and effect
  • Comprehension skills
  • Inflectional endings –s, -es, and –ed
  • Making inferences
  • Inflectional endings –er and –est
  • Verbs: was, were, has, have, go, do
  • About contractions
  • More high-frequency words
  • About adjectives
  • Writing “super-size” sentences
  • How-To writing pieces
  • Persuasive/opinion writing
  • Nonfiction reading

In math we are finishing up Unit 6 which focuses on:

  • Fluency with addition facts
  • Exploring telling time
  • Number stories
  • More with place value

Please continue to read the math newsletter to familiarize yourself with our current and upcoming topics.

          This is a great time to review addition doubles and introduce fact families.  Please encourage your child to add and subtract facts by counting up.  Use the number line and number grid to aid in this process. 

          Also, please have your kids go on Raz-Kids!  It is a great reading website where your child has access to books on his/her level.  Notes and passwords were sent home at the beginning of the year.  Most of you are going on, however, there are a few students who have not logged on at all.   Your child can also use the Raz-Kids books for his/her reading log

   In Science we have been learning about winter animal behaviors as well as Earth’s patterns in space.  In the coming weeks we will be studying families then and now in Social Studies.

  Please note that the RED WORD HOMEWORK BOOK assignments will be changing slightly.  Please check the inside cover of the book for the instructions.  Please also remember that your child may have the same words more than one time  in this book.  Our ultimate goal is to have your child be able to not only read and recognize the words, but spell them as well. 

   We will be going on a field trip in early April.  Please be on the lookout for a permission slip coming home next week. 

  Please keep in mind that conferences will take place at the end of March.  Please remember to sign up online (on Genesis) for conference times. 


Thank you,

 Mrs. Jubelt
