Ms. Schaum's Class Newsletter

Week of October 13-16, 2015

Nut Free Classroom

We have some learners with severe nut allergies, so our classroom is designated as a nut free zone. Please do not send any food to school that contains nuts. Thank you for helping us keep our classroom safe for all learners!

Curriculum Corner

Reading: We will be working on sequencing events when we retell stories.


Writing: We will be learning how to use different thinking maps to organize our thinking and ideas before writing.


Math: We will be using tally marks to record data.


Science: We will be observing pumpkins and communicating our ideas like scientists.


Social Studies: We will be practicing presentation skills for our All About Me Bags (and presentations in general).
