We've Set Sail

Can you believe it's been one week already?  We're already establishing steady routines that will last the whole year long.  Great job boys and girls.

Spelling City.com is a free website where you can study our spelling words!  I will practice using this site with you in class so it becomes familiar.  It uses our spelling list words and turns them into games and activities to use during the week---including a practice test you may take for fun.

I have posted the spelling lists in the same order we will study them this year.  They follow the same  weekly stories we are reading in class.   Have fun!  The link is below.

                    Off we go for smooth sailing!

Welcome Back to School 2012-2013

We are in our first full week of school and it's been great!

We have 26 students this year.  There are 12 boys and 14 girls. That means we will have lots of new friends.  

Thank you for reading for 20 minutes each night.  The more we practice reading, the better we will become and the more we will enjoy it.  

In math we've been talking about the doubles.  We've got them down pretty good!

We're making telephones on Friday.  Sound travels in waves so it will be fun to hear our voices travel through a string from one paper cup to another.

                   Thanks for using your Homework Trackers!
