March 26-March 29
I can't believe we are in the 4th nine weeks already, this year is really flying by so fast. Report cards will be sent home in Tuesday Folders this week so be on the lookout.
This week in reading we are coming back to Poetry. We will be discussing characteristics of poetry, but we will be digging deeper and really talking about imagery,visualizing and most of truly comprehending and understanding the poems we read.
In phonics, we are working on gh making three sounds, the f sound, no sound and the the g sound.
We also be working on writing an opinion story. Students will have to come up with a topic and generate reasons why they think what they think.
I am looking forward to being with your kids this week. Right now I am concentrating on pushing this last 4th nine weeks. Curriculum and reading groups are becoming tougher and I am really trying to prepare them for 3rd grade.
Your kids are really amazing and they are growing and trying so hard. I am proud of their growth and their willingness to embrace the growth mindset. They are awesome!
