We enjoyed learning about the history of Fishers with the Hamilton County Historian, David Heighway! It was awesome to learn from a true expert!

SOS Presentation

Wednesday, Mrs. Bradley taught the students about SOS. SOS stands for:

S: silent and still

O: out with distractions

S: stay focused on the target

Ask your child how this will help them stay focused at school!

Connecting with Mr. Cushman

Last Friday our class had the opportunity to work with Mr. Cushman. He has challenged groups of students in our class to create a board game that MUST include exercise and/or fitness. We spent part of the morning with him exploring the components of a board game (game board, dice, cards, place markers, directions, etc.). The students then had to brainstorm ways to incorporate exercise or fitness into a board game. On the next half day we'll continue our work and start writing rules, and designing the game board!

We are Learning...

Reading: We are learning to be problem solvers as we read! Readers have strategies for figuring out tricky words as they read!

Math: We are focusing on subtraction strategies to help us subtract quickly and fluently!

Writing: We are learning about the structure of a personal narrative. We are using mentor texts to help us understand the elements of personal narratives.

Social Studies: We are continuing to learn about the history of our community! We are studying books, old pictures, and timelines. We are also learning more about a Fishers today! It's amazing to see how much growth has taken place and it's interesting learning why!
