Mrs. Buckley's Math and Reading


Bell Prairie's Fun Run Fundraiser!

Our classes are having a blast preparing for the Mustang Fun Run coming up soon! Mrs. Ross's class is called Ross’s Roadrunners, while my class is called Buckley's Bandits. Several of our kiddos have worked together to create flags to represent our classroom in the Fun Run. They are hung up right outside our classroom doors. Please take a look at it during Parent/Teacher Conferences. Plus, we started learning how to “play with character” through the Fun Run’s character theme, Big World Recess. We’re traveling the world learning from REAL kid-athletes in other cultures.

Remember, as you connect to sponsors for the Fun Run, make sure all pledges are entered on The more pledges we get, the more incentives our class earns on our Pledge-O-Meter. Our class already has $455.00 in pledges! Plus, for every $30 per lap our class pledges, a pair of shoes will be sent to a person in need in another country through the Great Shoe Takeoff giveback program. I know our students are excited to rise to the challenge!

Thank you for your generosity and supporting our school!

What are we learning?

Math: We are currently diving into equal sharing and equivalences!

Math Homework - Math Homework has been given and is due this Friday!

Reading: We have been working on being able to explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text. We are currently jumping into questioning the text.

Reading Homework -They are expected to read a minimum requirement of 20 minutes a night or at least a 100 minutes by Friday. Reading logs will be checked on Fridays, so they will need to stay in the students binders to get a grade. Make sure they are signed.

BP Reminders:

Transportation - If your child is ever changing transportation, please send a written note from a guardian. Otherwise you will need to contact the office. These methods ensure that your precious kiddos get home safely.

PTA- Don't forget to search Bell Prairie Elementary PTA on facebook and "like" their page, to keep up on what's happening at BP.
