Ms. Schaum's Class Newsletter

Week of February 8-12, 2016

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 making connections: text to self, text to text, text to world.

Writing: We will continue a unit on expository writing. This week we will continue writing How To Books.

Math: We will be continuing to model and solve addition and subtraction word problems.

Science: We will be studying magnets.

Social Studies: We will be working on our Influential African Americans PBL. We will research an influential African American and publish a book about their contributions.
