January 30 - February 3, 2017

January 30th-February 3rd
Here’s a peek at next week!

Phonics Family Words: sport, more, order, store, for, chores, fixes, wanted, liked, playing

Phonics- or

Reading: Daily 5 will be a review of the expectations for groups and how to rotate to groups. 
Students will continue to identify the main topic and supporting details as well as ask and 
answer questions. Students will also identify the meaning of words from phrases. Students will 
read like texts and compare them (alike/different). We will also review cause and effect this 
week.  There will be a groundhog theme in reading texts. 

L.Arts: Fix it up: capital letters, punctuation, and spelling. This week we will review conjunctions 
as well as review topics we have already learned. 

Writing Workshop: We will continue our focus on Opinion writing. What ideas are important to
 include when writing your opinion?  How can I organize my thoughts to share my opinion? How
 do I provide reasoning for my opinion? Students will think about comparing things. We will also 
learn about talking directly to our reader and hooking them through our writing. 

Math: Students will work to manipulate shapes with tangrams and be able to define attributes of 
2D shapes. We will begin to identify attributes and names of 2D shapes. Students will review 
how to analyze data.

Positive Discipline: How can I show teamwork? Do I have all of the tools in my Zones Toolbox
 and can I use them when I change zones?

Science: We will review light and shadows. How does light work to form shadows? Can there 
be a shadow without light? We will learn about groundhogs and work on a STEM activity. 
1. Practice your sight words
2. Reading Passage - Hibernation
3. Math – Plane Figure Shape Hunt
4. Review your phonics family nightly
5. READ! 

Fantastic Savings Books are HERE!
We are off to a good start with our school fundraiser for STEM. The students are pumped up about selling coupon books. We need everyone to help us sell as many coupon books as possible. The proceeds will be used to purchase more STEM materials for student use. All students were sent home with flyers containing details on how to sell coupons.

Rocky Branch Elementary School holds a Father/Daughter Dance each year for girls and their fathers or a special friend. The money from the entry fee for each couple is sent to Relay for Life. The cost is $35 per couple and the event will be held on Friday, February 3rd at 6:00 pm. Please email me if you have any questions about reservations. Take advantage of ticket pre-orders by turning in the pink slip sent home with your daughter by January 31st.

Snack Reminders
Please be sure to send your child to school every day with a snack. Snacks should be quick and easy to eat, as we have five minutes for snack. Please be mindful of the sugar content in snacks and of our friends who have nut allergies. Thank you!

Six Flags Read to Succeed

Your child was sent home with a Six Flags Read to Succeed Student Reading Log. Keep track of your child’s reading with this log to qualify for a free ticket to Six Flags Over Georgia. Students must read and log 6 hours. Reading logs are due to Mrs. Ashley by February 10th, but may be turned in sooner if at least 6 hours are completed. I will distribute tickets in the spring when they arrive at school. If you need a new sheet, please let me know. Happy Reading!
