March 31st – April 4th

Hello everyone,

I hope you all stayed safe and in out of the storm the last couple of days.  What a storm it was!   Hopefully spring is on it’s way very soon! 🙂

Spelling and Homework folders:

Because of all the days off we have had this week we will have our spelling test on Monday for last this week’s lists.  A new list will be assigned for the week of March 31st – April 4th.  That test will be on Friday of  next week.   You will notice in your child’s homework folder I have included all of the spelling lists until the end of the year.  One list will be assigned each week as usual.

Also in your child’s homework folder you will find all the math facts that they need to know until the end of the year.  Grade one is currently up to the 10 addition family and 9 subtraction family.  Grade two is currently up tot he 14 addition family and 13 subtraction family.  Grade two has also been introduced to the concept of multiplication.  They should be studying the 1 and 2 times tables.  They will learn up to the 5 times tables by the end of the year.

 

This week’s tests:

Grade One:

Monday March 31st — Spelling Test list # 19

Thursday April 3rd — Phonics test

Friday April 4th — Spelling test list # 20

Grade Two:

Monday March 31st — Spelling Test List # 22

In Class White boards:

I have created a white board for each student which we use for a number of activities throughout the day.  I had supplied a dry erase marker with each one, however, I am noticing now that most of the markers are running dry.  We use the almost everyday in class.  In order to keep everyone supplies with a working marker I am asking that each student bring in one package of dry erase markers (4 pk).  I will distribute one marker to each student and have a supply so they can be replaced when they start to dry up.  You can get a package of 4 (multicoloured) at the dollar store for $2.00 which work quite well.
