Dear Parents,

Thank you so much to those of you who sent in wonderful surprises for Staff Appreciation week!  You were so thoughtful!  I have been so lucky to have such a wonderful class and amazing parents!  I'll be so sad to see everyone go in just a few weeks!


Here's what we've been up to in...



Comprehension and Phonics skills:

  •   Vocabulary words: Money words
  •       Inferences
  •   Base words with -ed, and -ing
  • Combining sentences with conjunctions





This week we put the finishing touches on our bird reports and practiced our speeches!  At the end of the week, everyone had an opportunity to present his/her speech for the class.  The students did an excellent job!  Be sure to look for the bird report in today's Friday Folder.



Telling time to the five minute was our math strand for the week.  We used our practice clocks to tell time on an analog clock.  This is continues to be a tricky skill for many students so any additional practice would be helpful.

Zoo Trip

If you volunteered to chaperone on our June 1 field trip to the Oregon Zoo, please check today's Friday Folder for more information.  A form is included for you to fill out and return.

Desk Sale:  June 5!!

Today in your child's Friday folder there is a note telling all about the exciting desk sale which will be held on June 5th.  The flyer has all the info you need, so be sure to check it out!  This is one of our very favorites of the year. :)
