Mrs. Tally – March 26, 2012

Friday, March 23rd, 2012



Dear Families,

I pray you will have a wonderful, blessed vacation next week, enjoying time with family and friends as we celebrate our RISEN SAVIOR!!!   He Lives!!!!

MATH - First Graders are working on adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers. Second Graders are adding and subtracting with regrouping to 100. The chapter review for both grades will be due on Wednesday, March 28th.  We will have our Chapter tests  Wednesday, March 28th.

FIRST GRADERS - Book bags that came home Friday, March 23rd, will not be due until Friday, April 13th. I am sending enough books to last for two weeks. With all the special activities for Easter on March 30th, I didn’t want to put books in the mix. You WILL NOT send the book bag back until April 13th. If you finish before they are due, just grab some of your own books at home to read.  The children can read so much material now that it does not need to be controlled. Have fun!!!  Also, there will be no assignment from the “Blue Book” until after vacation.

SECOND GRADERSHomework folders that came home on March 23rd will not be due until April 13th.  I will include two weeks worth of Reading Logs, for a total of 100 minutes. There will be no assignment from the Anthology book until after vacation. I will also include the next Book Project, which is a Diorama.  It will be due on May 15th (Open House day). It will be on display for that night. This is a VERY fun, creative project.  The children love it!

SPEECHES-  We will continue with our speeches this week and finish up on Thursday. The children may dress in costume if they wish and bring a food that represents their country. These suggestions are optional and not a requirement.

FIRST GRADE PROJECT - We will be writing about ourselves for a project to be displayed at Open House.  An information paper came home on March 19th. This is usually information that the children do not know.Please fill it out and return by Friday, March 30th. You will enjoy reading these at Open House. Also, please send in a picture of your child (not younger than Kindergarten) that will be displayed on the project.  This can be a school photo or a candid shot.The largest it should be is 5×7.  You will get the photo returned at the end of the year. Many Thanks!

FIVE – A DAY -  Due to second grade speeches in the afternoon, we will resume Five-A- Days after vacation.

 BIBLE - We will be studying the Easter story, focusing on the death and resurrection of Jesus, the foundation of our faith., 

WORK ENVELOPE - We will not bring our work envelope home on Monday, March 26th, but we will bring it home on Friday, March 30thwhich will include the Easter curriculum. Please return by April 13th.

SHOW AND TELL - This week will be Team B. Your child can show twice during the week.

FIELD TRIP - Both First and Second Grades will  be going to the World Market at People’s Campus. This is put on by the 7th graders and is always a great experience. The date is Thursday, April 12th. We will travel by bus, leaving at 11:00 AM and returning by 12:30 PM.  We will eat lunch after we return. Each child can bring $5 to spend at the Market.

EASTER CELEBRATION -  We will be having an Easter Celebration on March 30th from 1-2:40 PM.   Each child is to bring 12 filled, plastic Easter eggs for our egg hunt. Otherwise, we have everything we need  for our party.  Many thanks!!!
