Ms. Schaum's Class Newsletter

Week of November 16-20, 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 learning about the parts of a letter and different types of poems.


Writing: We will be continuing to go through the writing process and write a narrative story - Prewrite, Rough Draft, Revise, Edit, Publish. This week we will write a story about a turkey who escapes becoming Thanksgiving dinner.


Math: We will be learning about personal finance - income, spending, saving, and giving.


Science: We will be introducing the three different forms of matter - solids, liquids, and gases.


Social Studies: We will learn about the first Thanksgiving.
