  We were hoping our snow dance would work, and have a snow day on Friday?!?! We will try again, and hope for a future snow day!

  We practiced our handwriting with letter N, played categories with words that started with N, and read FUN IN THE SUN.  We practiced our ABC order with our red words and put our last names in ABC order.  This was a lot of fun, and a bit challenging!  We also continued to work on our blends by playing head hunters, practicing writing the blends we heard our teacher call out, and worked on a cut/paste blend activity.  We enjoyed playing red word bingo this week, but we had the most fun playing red word basketball -Grizzlies vs. Rockets!  We worked on our coin identification, counting money and tally marks with a coin scoop activity.  We practiced decomposing numbers to 10 and worked on our addition sentences/facts.  We played "war" with a partner using playing cards to practice our addition and rolled/tallied with dice for some extra practice with tally marks.  We learned a lot of interesting facts about Jackie Robinson this week during our Black History Month study.

 We are looking forward to learning more red words, incorporating letter E into our writing, and doing some fun, learning Valentine Day Activities next week!

 Have a great week!  Have a safe and fun winter break!!

We have had a radical “r” week! This week has been very busy for the letter “r”. The boys have learned 6 new blends this week. We are starting to blend and write more 4-5 words, and we are so proud of how the boys are always up are a challenge. We started exploring punctuation deeper and discussing what a complete sentence looks like. We have been looking at sentences and discussing which punctuation mark fits the sentence. We wrote in our journals this week and we are working hard to put our thoughts on paper.

The boys have been counting tally marks by 5s for 99 days! We are looking forward to celebrating the 100th day on Monday. Please have your son wear his class t-shirt on Monday. Since we know how to count tally marks, we are now working on writing tally marks. Please practice counting objects in your house and writing tally marks. The boys have been introduced to all the coins. They enjoy counting coins and playing “fill the bank”.

This week, we started discussing weather. We are starting with SNOW! Oh, how we wish it would snow! We have surveyed our friends on their favorite snow activity and used our tally marks to read our results.

We are wrapping up our MLK unit, and we have enjoyed discussing how God created everyone unique and special and how we are to always celebrate who we are. We also talked openly about how to treat others and to make sure we use our words to express ourselves and not our hands.
