What Are We Learning!

Reading and Writing

We are continuing Pam Allyn Journey to Meaning. Students are exploring more character traits, and further defining their skills with story structure. Each student will be constructing their own story throughout the month.

Math

As we continue to follow the Ready Math curriculum, students will be identifying properties of multiplication and division. Your child will be learning fact families and applying their knowledge to solve problems.

Please continue to practice basic multiplication and division facts at home.

Health

We will be starting our unit on feelings and emotions this month. Students will be focusing on how to handle stressful situations, and how to be respectful of others' emotions.

Please ask your child about what they are learning each week to help them review.
