Hope everyone had a wonderful break! We are looking forward to hearing about all the fun and adventures the kids had when we return to school tomorrow.
Reminder: we will be traveling to the Desert Museum this Friday. Students should wear red shirts and khaki pants, or jeans! Sturdy shoes are a must. Every student needs to bring a lunch from home this Friday, as we will be eating at the museum.
Students should bring in their paragraph about the animal they researched by Wednesday. Can’t wait!
Language Arts: students will continue to identify ways families work together, focusing on cooperation, while reading Teams Work Together, The Mangrove Tree, and In A Mountain Community. Phonics – read and spell multisyllabic words with er, ir, ur. Grammar – use possessive pronouns. Reading – identify main idea, determine importance. Writing – students will write about the main idea, an opinion piece, as well as a response to In A Mountain Community. Math – students will be transitioning into investigation 3 this week where the focus will be on fluency within 100, using knowledge of place value to add/subtract, and understanding, representing, and solving problems involving addition/subtraction through one thousand. Desert animals and habitats will be an overarching theme this week!
This Tuesday is Fat Tuesday (also know as Mardi Gras)! Our annual Pancake Lunch will be in full swing. All students will be provided free pancakes, and entertainment by the Tucson High Steel Drum Band! If your child will not be eating pancakes, they will need to bring their own lunch to school.
Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, and Mother Clare will be offering ashes during our Wednesday chapel. You are welcome to attend!
Thank you for the sweet valentine cards, treats, and gifts. The kids had a wonderful day celebrating each other!
