Spelling: We reviewed common spelling patterns for the short “o” sound (/o/). Spelling worksheets are due on Thursday, at the time of our next spelling test.
Cursive: Students are continuing to work on cursive pp. 14-17, due this Friday.
Reading: Today we continued to practice the “Illustrator” Literature Circles role, using Esperanza Rising. Today was also WEB.
Math: Students completed math journal p. 4 in class, and it is homework if not finished.
Science: We started an experiment called “Pulling Through” and will finish it tomorrow.
Social Studies: We added notes about the Southeast to our Regions Mini-book, and then we started a WordSort for the Northeast. Students will finish the WordSort tomorrow.
- Yellows: 2 magnets
- Oranges: 1 magnet

Ask your student what kind of choices they made.
- We are looking for donations of cardboard tubes (toilet tissue, paper towel, wrapping paper) for class projects. The tubes can be sent in any time during the year; this project will be on-going. Thanks for any help you can give!
- There is still some space left on our Room 130 Pride board. Let’s fill that thing up! If your student hasn’t yet brought in three unique “objects” about themselves, then please send them so that they can be put on display for all to see. We are looking for things like photos, postcards, papers, medals, or little trickets that can be put in bags and hung on the board. The only limitation is size, and being able to be attached somehow to a bulletin board. These objects can remain with us the whole year, or rotated out whenever the student wants.
