Our Work for the Week:

PHONICSWe will continue learning about r-controlled vowels this week; focusing on words with -er, -ir, and -ur.

WRITING: We will begin writing about the life cycle of the chick.

MATH:  We will continue with Chapter 8: Two Digit Addition and Subtraction. This week we will be using models to add, making a ten to add, and using place value to add. There will be a Chapter 8 test next week.

**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 enjoy a visit with Father Brian this week.

SOCIAL STUDIES: We will finish up presenting our Flat Stanley projects to learn about all of the places that Stanley visited! 

SCIENCE: Our chick eggs are settled in the incubator and we are making daily observations about the changes taking place inside the eggs.

**As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
