*Please be sure your child is present for each day that we have an SOL. We understand that emergencies and sickness does happen unexpectedly, but please make sure that your child is here at school one time these day if at all possible. Please help us, and schedule any appointments on other days.

*I like to provide a healthy breakfast for students on the mornings of each SOL to help lighten some of the stress. If you are interested in providing a healthy breakfast (bagels, muffins, yogurt, cereal, fruit, juice, etc.) please follow the link below to sign up!

What We're Learning

Reading: Your child is expected to read 15-20 minutes each night. I encourage you to read with your child and ask questions about what they are reading along the way to help strengthen their comprehension skills. We will be working on skills to best fit the needs of each child this week.


Math: We have begun SOL Review! Please continue helping your child a home with reading an analog clock and counting money! We will begin learning about probability this week and continue review


Social Studies: This week we will continue our unit on Mali.


Science: This week your child will continue working on a project

Homework

Please check and sign your child's homework grid nightly. Your signature verifies you have seen their grid and homework assignments and they have finished the work.


Students will have Math homework nightly (Monday-Thursday)


Students are expected to read at least 20 minutes each night, including weekends. They will be asked to complete a reading log each night as well.
