Be My Valentine Red Heart.png

Welcome to Room 109(Week of 2/12/18)

We are looking forward to a fun week! On Monday we will be celebrating the 100th day of school, and Valentine’s Day will make for a sweet Wednesday .  Throughout the excitement, we will  look at changes we can observe in nature. Much of our reading will focus on the four seasons and the differences we can see throughout the year.  The class will also read a narrative nonfiction book called, I’m a Caterpillar, by Jean Marzolo, which will take us through the life cycle of a caterpillar.  As we read this and other stories during the week, the class will look carefully at text structure and practice drawing conclusions.


Phonics will focus on the sounds of r-controlled e, i, and u  (her, bird, turn.  We remember these “Bossy r” sounds by putting up our paws and growling like dogs.) We will also expand our collection of contractions by learning ‘s, ‘ve, and ‘re (she’s, you’ve, we’re).


In math we will continue explore place value, odd and even numbers and greater/less than.

Spelling Words:


         bird           girl
