***We are exploring fairy tales this week, and the magic that accompanies them! So far we have read fairy tales from Mexico, Ireland, and Persia!
***Our work in grammar this week has led us to singular and plural pronouns. Man, are these a bunch of smart kids! They grasped onto the concept quickly, and have done well with their work in the last couple of days.
***Spelling this week focuses on compound word. While we may be able to point out compound words, say them and spell them, when it comes to writing them, our tendency is to what to put a space between the two words rather than join them together. Needless to say, that is the task we are aiming to accomplish this week, as if they are not joined together as one word, they are no longer compound.
***Report cards will be sent home on Friday. Like last time, I ask that you remind your kiddo to be respectful to others and keep their grades private between you and them. Grades are not to be shared with friends, or asked about, and report cards are not to be opened at school. Remember we are still learning, and some concepts have just been introduced so your child may just be (E)merging on a standard, and that is 100% OK! If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to get a hold of me, and I will be more than happy to chat with you.
***Our class pictures and individual pictures, for those of you who opted to have your child's photo taken individually, have been rescheduled for this coming Monday, March 12th. 3rd grade will be getting their pictures taken first so as to accommodate for the QUEST kiddos. Make sure that everyone is on time on Monday so we can get all their smiling faces in the class photo!
***Oh, and I heard it's supposed to hit 50 degrees next week! Maybe spring is finally heading to Montana!!!
