Class T-Shirts & PTA

Our PTA is wonderful! They will be purchasing our class T-shirts. A note came home in folders on Friday asking you which size you would like for your child. Thank you for returning it to school! Donations for PTA are due by Friday, September 23rd. Thank you for all of your assistance in our grade level.


On Monday, we will send home our next homework assignment. We will send home a cut out shirt on paper. Please help your child create a t-shirt with symbols and designs that represent their likes and things that are important in their life. For example,sports, colors and hobbies are great things to include. Please add as many bits of information as you can on the shirt so we can learn great things about each other. We will display these in our hallway. We will also be using some of this information in our math graphs as well!

This homework will be due the following Monday, September 26th!

In class............

Language Arts-We are working on a variety of strategies with oral and written responses individually and with partners to stretch our words and sentences within our reading. Our stamina is growing as well as our comprehension!

In writing workshop we continue to focus on small moments within our lives as topics for stories with a beginning, middle and end.

Math- We have continued to use data we gather in class to create many graphs-pictographs, bar graphs-both vertical and horizontal and graphs using tally marks.

Spelling- Test will be on Friday, September 23rd!

Science/Social Studies-We have been talking about the five senses and how they assist us in identifying properties of matter. We compare physical properties of objects in our world and discuss and record similarities and differences including their weight-heavier and light and measurement.
