Jackets:

We have been SO lucky that we can continue to enjoy gorgeous weather outside during recess. Because we are starting to hit the season where the weather can be unpredictable, please have your students bring a coat to school. If the weather is nice enough during the day, and they choose to not wear it outside, that is fine. However, I would rather have them have the OPTION of taking off their jacket than not having one at all.

Next Week:

Math:

We will finish our unit on finding area. Students will begin learning strategies that will help them become fluent in the areas of multiplication and division.


Writing:

We will finish publishing our feature article and create a class periodical.
