Good Afternoon!!!  We had the most productive day today!

Here's what we did.....

In reading, we read the decodable book, "The Mole Zone."  We also answered comprehension question.  We did a shared reading of the poem of the week "The Silver Fish."  Be sure to ask your child about this very funny Shel Silverstein poem.  I took reading groups, and we not only continued to read our early chapter books, but we also played a phonics game using blends and digraphs!  We read a new story in our text books, "For the Love of Our Earth," and we defined the new vocabulary words - dawn, engines,glows, witness and litter.

In spelling we took a spelling preset and corrected the words.  We practiced our new words on spelling city using the Ipads.

In math we worked on patterns in addition and subtraction.  We will have a math test Friday.  The review was posted on the blog last week and a hard copy will go home this week.  Please use quizzes from test folder to help study/prepare.

In religion we talked about the day Jesus rode to Jerusalem the week before his death and resurrection.  We read the gospel story from the book of Matthew and discussed that this is Palm Sunday.

This week in the national "Week of Respect."  We will be talking all week about respecting others, being kind and considering others.  Today we read "Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun."  This is a story about treating others the way in which you wish to be treated.
