Wise Owls Newsletter Jan. 29, 2018

Hi all!

Can you believe we have been in school 90 days? WOW! We are more than half way through (We have 172 school days total.) I want to thank all of you who have sent in who your child’s special guest will be for our Valentine’s day breakfast. This note was sent home last week. I will attach it to this newsletter for those of you that still need to return it. If you need a hard copy, please email me and let me know. Just a reminder that I will only need 4 or 5 volunteers. If you are a special guest, you are sitting with your child and NOT volunteering. I think I will have to say no to some volunteers as we do not want 26 special guests and 26 volunteers! I’m sure you understand.

In math, we are learning about adding 3 digit numbers, adding plus 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20, 25 and 30 as well as subtracting those numbers too. We are learning in the form of games (capture 5 and make a dollar are the two games your child have learned thus far). IXL “I” is a good one to practice as well as review the money and telling time.

In spelling the word wall words are: penny, nickel, quarter, hundred and thousand. The kids are learning to spell the number words as part of our math unit. Please practice Spelling city Week 13. Please also remember to have your child write the words on paper. Some ideas would be to play hangman, write the word 3 times, in ABC order and to write a paragraph or sentences using the words.

Have a great week and I’ll be in touch soon individually with those of you donating items for our valentine breakfast.
