Ms. Schaum's Class Newsletter

Week of March 28 - April 1, 2016

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 learning about cause and effect.


Writing: We will continue a unit on expository writing. This week we will celebrate our All About Books.


Math: We will be working on expressions and how the equals sign does not always mean the answer to the problem is after it.


Science: We will be continuing a PBL on Objects in the sky. This week we will focus on the moon.


Social Studies: We will be learning about Texas Symbols.
