Furry Friends Flier Online
Greetings Furry Friends and Furry Folks!
* May 9th we are planning a Trip to the movies to see Disney's Nature Penguins! We will NOT need chaperones and unfortunately the AMC is only doing a private showing for students and staff, BUT we know that it won't be raining in the THEATER! The teachers will also plan a picnic lunch with the kids, some extra recess fun, and an afternoon of animal exploration! It will be a fun day of LEARNING!
*A yearly tradition in my room is to make TIE DYE TEESHIRTS for the end of the year Dodgeball Tournament and Camp Week. I always ask parents to send in a WHITE 100% COTTEN TEE SHIRT for your child. Cotton is so important for this project because it will hold the dye so much better than Polyester Blends. You can start sending those tee shirts in ASAP! We will wait until the beginning of May to do our projects! SO EXCITED!!
* DONATE YOUR PENNIES, SILVERS, and DOLLARS!!! THE COMPETITION HAS STARTED! We have a big jar in our room that would love to fill up! Penny Pitch is around the corner and our class REALLY wants to be in the top TWO of the 2nd grade classes for the END OF THE YEAR FIRETRUCK SPLASH DOWN!
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU STUDY FOR THIS TEST! IT COULD BE THE LAST ONE OF THE YEAR!!!

Seems to be the perfect time of year to be reading about baseball again. With Little League practices and games every night, it seems our story Just Like Josh Gibson is sure to be a grand slam. The narrator remembers stories her grandmama used to tell about the days when SHE played baseball. Can a girl really hit a baseball just like Josh Gibson?
Our phonic skill this week is inflected endings. We will be working on changing the endings of our spelling words to show when they happened (-ed and –ing) or comparing words (-er and –est).
