Mrs. Tracy Caputo « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

 

Dear Parents, families,

                                 Progress reports were electronically sent out on Friday. Hopefully you have had time to review your child's progress thus far for this nine weeks. Remember, if you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Later this month, I will be sending home the sign-up sheet for our second round of conferences. 

                                On February 12th, we will be exchanging Valentines, rotating through a couple centers, and enjoying a few snacks. I will be supplying white paper bags for the children to decorate, but if they want to decorate a Valentine's box at home and bring it in that would be fine. Please have those in by Thursday. The children can start bringing in their Valentines at any time. I will have a time set aside each day that they can put them in their classmates' holders.

                                This past week a yearbook order form was sent home with those students that hadn't ordered one during the first time. If you are interested in ordering one, you have until Friday, February 12th. Don't miss out on capturing your child's memories.

                           In reading this week, the following skills will be covered:

                                                           * Comprehension strategy: Visualizing

                                                           * Comprehension skill: Theme

                                                           * Vocabulary strategy: Poetry/free verse

                                                           * Phonics: R-controlled vowels: are, air, ear, ere 

                                                           * Structural Analysis: R-controlled syllables

                                                           * Grammar: Contractions

                                                           * Weekly story: "April Rain Song" (poetry)

                                Problem solving-adding and subtracting lengths centimeters and meters, estimating lengths in meters, and measuring and comparing lenghts will comprise the math lessons for the week. Another fact assessment will be given on Wednesday.

                                  We will finish up our unit on matter by mid-week, then we will switch to social studies and learn about immigration. The children will learn about why people came to America, what they had to endure to get here, and about Ellis Island.

                                  My February newsletter is listed as a PDF at the bottom of my page. Please take a look and see what will be happening. I wish everyone a happy work week. Please feel free to contact me anytime with your concerns. Don't forget to send in those box tops. 

                              

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Love,
