Math- Unit Review and Test
We have also been learning about balanced equations! There will be some extra practice on this skill this week, too. We began working on these types of problems last week, but students still need more practice. We used balances and gram weight Teddy bears to see if our equations were true or false.
It is very important to know the math facts in order to solve these types of problems.
5 + 4 = 8 +1
10 - 6 = 2 + 2
Global Play Day
Some ideas are: legos, doll shoes, cereal, buttons, marbles, stones, erasers, paper hearts, stickers, magnetic letters, anything small.
Also, we are going to have 100th Day Mash Up Mix for a treat! Students will put in a combination of 100 things to make their trail mix!

Valentine's Day Celebration
Valentine Boxes: This year, I would like students to bring in an already decorated box from home. They should bring it on party day. The box can be made from a cereal box, tissue box, or a bag/ box you have around. Feel free to decorate it with them as creatively or simplistically as you like! Many kids will be thrilled with a box covered in paper that they could color, or put stickers all over! Also, please be sure they have their name written in large letters. This will help when kids are passing out Valentines.
Also, I would like students to bring in a dollar towards pizza, if possible. If you are able to donate drink boxes, please let me know.
It's the time of year when many of our classroom supplies have diminished or dried out. If you could donate any of these items, it would be very appreciated!

Reading, Writing, and Word Study
They have also been learning about text features such as: captions, titles, bold print words, graphs and charts, and diagrams with labels.
We spent two weeks on the word chunks /or/ and /ar/, as these were challenging for many. This week will be moving on to words with /er/.
Please remember to return baggie books if you have some at home. I have volunteers a few times a week that send them out for me.
