What another wonderful weekend!! We have an extremely busy week ahead, take a look…

Reading ~ Our focus sound this week is /u/ as in umbrella. This week’s word wall words are: be, run, but, if, thank, fast, us, if, were.

Math ~ We will begin Chapter 21 on Fractions this week. Please continue to practice addition and subtraction math facts at home.

Language ~ We will focus on grammar rule 22 this week.  Rule 22 ~ Use is with one and are with more than one.  We are constantly reviewing rules that we have already learned this year which includes ALL grammar rules 1 – 21.

In other news~

Spirit Night at Baumhower’s ~ Don’t worry about dinner tomorrow night, it’s Spirit Night at Baumhower's on the Eastern Boulevard.  This is one more way we earn money for our school.  Be sure and tell them you are from Blount Elementary!

PTA Meeting on Tuesday!  The multi-cultural festival and PTA meeting is this Tuesday night at 6:00.  There will be many countries represented with food, decorations, and dress.  The festival and food will start at 6:00. The teacher with the highest percentage of parents and students in attendance will win a $50 gift card to Wal-Mart. Please try to come and be SURE to sign in! The meeting will not last past 7:00.  Hope to see you all there!

Cookie Dough ~ Those who ordered cookie dough can pick up their order on the cafeteria on Wednesday, March 2 from 2:00-5:30.  Thank you to everyone who bought or sold cookie dough!!



Tuesday: DEAR Time… Drop Everything And Read.  The children may bring a stuffed animal or doll to school to read with on Tuesday!

Wednesday:  The children can bring a favorite book to share with the class.  I will be reading these the remainder of the week so I may ask them to bring their favorite book several days or they may either leave it at school until we read it. I discovered many new books when the children brought their favorite books in the fall.  I am looking forward to seeing what comes in this week!!

Thursday:  Book Character Parade at 9:30!!  Come dressed as your favorite character from a book.  Don’t forget to make and wear a sign telling everyone what character you are and the book your character is from.

Friday:  Hats off to great books! Wear a silly or favorite hat to wear while we have a great time reading!!

Have a wonderful week!! Hugs!
