Sight Words:

Please be sure you are practicing your child's sight word lists daily.  There are some students that have not been bringing in sight words for testing.  When children do not master their sight words, they most often do not progress.  Please be sure to get new cards if you need them.  Just ask.  


Duck Eggs:
We are so excited to have 5 baby ducks!  It was a great hatch and everyone got to see at least one duck hatch from the egg!  We will have our ducks through Wednesday.  Feel free to stop in and see them!

April 11-15

I must apologize!  I realized today that I never uploaded the update I did for the blog last week!  I did upload the homework tab but as for the home page, it was left in the draft folder!!  I am so sorry!  The book fair was probably a surprise to you because I never uploaded last week!  I will blame it on the  "jet lag" my family and I were dealing with after returning from Taiwan right before school resumed.  I am happy to say that I am back on track and feeling good!  

We are Learning About:

sight words:  from, but
where, many, of, so, said, good, make, play, they, for, will, be, this, find, is, how, are, now, you, what, with, me, come, my, we, go, see, a, I, the, like,  to, can, and

Carnival Basket:
Cram has a carnival every year and it is approaching quickly!  Every class puts together a themed basket for an auction that day.  Our theme is Star Wars.  We are looking for any Star Wars themed item (new) to be donated for our basket.  If it is easier for you to make a 5$ donation, that would be fantastic.  Our Room Moms will take care of the rest!  Send in your 5$ donation in an envelope marked "carnival basket" and I will make sure they get it.  Thank you so much for your help!

Book Orders:
I sent some scholastic book order catalogs home last Monday.  If you make an online order, send me a quick text letting me know.  I find they do not always notify me and then I miss your order.

Duck Eggs:
We are learning about Oviparous animals and lifecycles in class.  We are incubating duck eggs and hope to have a good hatch in about  3 weeks.  It is a fun experience for the kids and feel free to stop in to see our eggs anytime.
