Updates for March 26, 2012

Hi Families,

We have a short week ahead of us before spring break begins on Friday :)!

Here a few of the things we have been busy working on in the classroom.


We have been immersing ourselves in a variety of reviews including, book reviews, ipod app reviews, movie reviews, and restaurant reviews just to name a few.  We have done this to prepare to write reviews of our own.  I can’t wait to see each child’s opinions shine through in their writing.


Daily 5/Reading

We have been concentrating on using the wondering strategy during non-fiction reading pertaining to our current study of science, matter.   We are really targeting retelling of fiction stories  by working with our partners and retelling the highlights of the story by identifying character attributes, setting of the story and the important events.  Have your child retell the books that they read at home to you as well :).



Subtraction with Regrouping continues to be our focus.  We have been practicing subtraction facts to improve our fluency or speed of recall.  Any extra support you could provide at home would be much appreciated.  Make sure to check out all of the apps and games linked on a previous post   SUBTRACTION GAMES.


Here are a few things to be aware of for this week:


* Library on THURSDAY

* Talent Show on THURSDAY

* Dr. Seuss CAFE on Wednesday – ( We will have 1st graders as our guests.)

* We are in need of a few supplies in the classroom.  If you are willing to provide any of these materials, we would greatly appreciate it :):   Anti bacterial Surface Wipes and Dry Erase Markers.

Here’s to a great week!

Mrs. Kuieck:)
