back into the swing of things!

Welcome Back!!!
I hope everyone had a great winter break and got to spend some quality time with your family!

This weeks spelling words are:







I will be starting to mark words with caPiTals in the middle wrong so practice printing using lowercase letters!

I am also going to start giving bonus sentences sometimes. This is to see where they are with using capitals at the beginning as well as proper punctuation. Keep practicing writing at home.

On Fri. March 4th- The Saracho family will be providing lunch and morning snack to help celebrate Tisha's birthday! If your child does not like pizza or does not wish to take part just send them a lunch that day.

**Report cards will be out soon. I will be sending a form home to choose which time/day you'd prefer. Please send the form back as soon as possible to allow time to get the whole school scheduled.

*Don't forget that we are collecting material to build a castle for our fairy tale unit. Cereal boxes, toilet paper rolls, styrofoam, anything we can use that will stick together with white glue or tape! I am looking forward to this unit...it is usually a lot of fun!!

**New blog link. Raz-Kids!! (in the language arts section) The kids LOVED this site. It really is fabulous! The best part is, is the books on Raz-Kids are books we read in guided reading so the familiarity helps them build confidence! I entered them all in under their own reading level. They read books, listen to them and answer questions and are moved up to new levels accordingly. While they are doing all of this "work" they are collecting points to build a "rocket room". They earn points and can buy things to decorate their room. Have them log on at home and enjoy a 'new way to read'!

The monthly calendar will be sent home today.

I think I got it all??? I hope I got it all! :)

Have a great week!
