February 25th-March 1st

Hello Parents!

There are only two weeks left in this quarter, this year is flying by so quickly.  Our quarter party is coming up next week so please keep your eyes peeled for information regarding this event. As we head into this exciting week, take a look at what’s ahead.

Spalding: Students will continue to write their spalding words in cursive. This week students will have 6 words each day for a total of 18 words. They will be tested on Friday.  Make sure students continue to practice their phonograms and complete all their homework in cursive as well.

Math: This week students will continue to learn about money and the value of different dollar bills and coins.

History/Science: We are now in the middle of our Life Cycles unit. This week students will learn about the life cycle of a frog and a butterfly. On Tuesday students will come home with another keyword outline for homework. Please help your students complete this so they can be prepared to write 5 complete sentences on Wednesday.

Reading: This week we will start The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. This is a very special novel because it will prepare students for reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in third grade. This is not a book that students own, we will be doing it as a read-aloud in class. We are excited to begin this wonderful story.

Poetry: Our next poem is “Windy Nights ” by Robert Louis Stevenson. Students will be taking home a hard copy of this poem this week. However, recitations will not be held until after spring break.

Windy Nights 

Robert Louis Stevenson

Whenever the moon and stars are set,
Whenever the wind is high,
All night long in the dark and wet,
A man goes riding by.
Late in the night when the fires are out,
Why does he gallop and gallop about?
Whenever the trees are crying aloud,
And ships are tossed at sea,
By, on the highway, low and loud,
By at the gallop goes he.
By at the gallop he goes, and then
By he comes back at the gallop again.

Warmly,

Ms. Allen, Mrs. Pim and Ms. Castle
