Here’s hoping a Happy Mother’s Day was had by all.  Tomorrow morning is our Special Person’s Day Breakfast.  Children should come to the classroom as usual, while special adults go to the blue room and find a seat for you and your child. We will meet you there as soon as we are organized.

We will be finishing our story about a seal pup, recognizing antonyms, discussing sequence of events, and making comparison in reading. Spelling will focus on vowel teams and syllables, while grammar will involve contractions. We will complete our math unit on geometry and fractions with a test on Tuesday. Religion will focus on the Ascension and Pentecost. We are continuing our Dinosaur unit in PBL. The kids put together five 100 piece jigsaw puzzles in record time. Teachers were very impressed by the level of cooperation exhibited during this exercise. Yeah!

Tuesday afternoon, Farmer Dan will be here once again to lead a lesson in the garden. The Parents as Reading Partners event is scheduled for  Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.. The Scholastic Book Fair is scheduled for Tuesday through Friday. Students may go during the lunch/recess period each day.

Have a good week!
