Spelling words  this week: bright, high, pies, tie, sky, why, child, find, again, country.  The focus will be on the long E sound: -igh, -ie, -y, -i. We will have a spelling test on these words Friday. **Please note: from this point forward, errors on misplaced capital letters within the spelling words will be marked wrong on the test.**

 Our reading unit will finish up this week.  Our focus is on Past, Present and Future. We will be asking the question, "Why is the past important?"  This week we learned about timeline and are making one in class! If you would like to explore more about the past, the San Mateo County History Museum in Redwood City has a great hands on exhibit featuring items from the past. 

Kid Town has begun!  This week we named our town Fun Shop City.  We also named our stores and made signs for them.  The students have been earning money each day.  Be sure to ask them how much they have been earning and the different stores we will have in our town!  Next week we will set up our stores and hopefully will begin to shop!

         Donation update- We continue to need the following items:

                  -used books

                  -new or used small toys

                  -toilet paper or paper towel rolls

                  -beads for our jewelry store

                  -grocery store items


Save the Date! We will have a Town Meeting at the end of our unit inviting the parents in to visit our town.  This will be held on Friday April 3 at 8:30 and will last about 1 hour.  

Wee Care this month is collecting canned foods and clothes.  We will be collecting cans of soup, beans, or vegetables.  We will also be collecting new and gently used clothing and shoes for kids 0-18.  All of these will be collected until March 12.  You can either bring to class or drop off in the library.

 Important note received today from our Mrs. Goity, our music teacher:                                                                                                                                                                             "Unfortunately Music for Minors has decided to cancel their class Sharing Events in order to protect the health of students and families. Many school districts are following the guidance of the county to cancel or postpone any large gatherings or events, and our Sharing Events fall under that category. Our executive director has emailed your principal, but I wanted to let you all know as soon as possible, since our Sharing Events were scheduled for this coming Tuesday. Please inform your families of the cancellation."

 Home Folders will be sent home today and will contain:

-Topic 10 parent letter and practice pages.
