SPELLING WORDS: flat, shed, clip, chop, stump, plate, nice, stove, flute, does

PHONICSWe will be reviewing short and long vowels this week.

WRITING: In preparation for the 100th day of school, we will be working about what we would do with one hundred dollars and how we think we will look when we are 100 years old.

MATH:  We have finished Chapter 5: Relating Addition and Subtraction. We will review on Monday, February 12th, and have a chapter test on Tuesday, February 13th.

**Please note that if during the day we use pages out of our Big Math Book in class, I will send those pages home in the red take home folder so you can see how the lesson was taught during the day. It is my hope that, if needed, this will help you be able to assist your child with the homework that night.

RELIGION: We will be begin discussing Ash Wednesday and Lent. On Wednesday we will attend Mass and receive ashes.

SCIENCE: We will finish our unit on the Solar System this week and end with a field trip to the Cradle of Aviation on Thursday!
