Because we have two short weeks in a row, our test will not be this Friday as usual, but instead we will test next Tuesday on these spelling words.

Short week!

Welcome back after President's day and a three day weekend. We will get to work this week on the long o sound spelled oa and ow as in coat and glow in addtion we will study long u spelled ue and ew as in few and fuel. Please practice the spelling words nightly and talk about other words that are spelled the same. Because it's a short week we will not have our spelling test on Friday, we will have it next Tuesday as we wrap up our unit.

In math we will finish up our study on units and measuring. We will have our end of module assessment on Friday. It's been a fun unit and children seem to understand and have enjoyed measuring various items in our room, comparing them and putting them into charts of small, medium and large.

Last week we had a fun Valentine's day party. Thank you to the parent volunteers who helped with games and fun. Also, a big thank you to anyone who donated cookies and donuts. We enjoyed playing games and exchanging valentines.

Please check the school calendar on the website for any other details about this week. It's a time of great learning as we wrap up this second trimester. No school on Friday, March 1.
