What We Are Learning This Week
Language Arts: This week, we will be reading Catching the Moon by Crystal Hubbard. We will write summaries of the story and learn more about figurative and literal phrases. In spelling this week, we will be studying words with the consonants ph, gh, ck, and ng. Our spelling test will be on Friday, April 8th.
Social Studies: We will continue our unit on Citizenship. Students will identify various United States symbols such at the Liberty Bell, Mound Rushmore, the Star Spangled Banner, American Flag and the Statue of Liberty.
Math: This week the students will be introduced fractions. Students will learn to partition objects into halves, fourths, and eighths. Students will be able to identify fractional parts of objects.
Science: This week students will explore magnets and how they are used in everyday life.
Please send in headphones or earbuds!
PLEASE COME HELP IN THE LUNCHROOM!
We are in need of a volunteer for ALL FOUR DAYS of this coming week. As a reminder, our lunch is from 11:45-12:15 and your child's teacher appreciates you coming to help! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
Austin Intramural's Needs YOUR Help!
Are you interested in getting involved at Austin? We have an opportunity for you that only requires an hour and fifteen minutes of your time on either a Monday or Tuesday (or both) afternoon from 3:15-4:30. This semester, we are offering soccer to our 2nd – 5th grader learners. As of 2:00 on Friday 4/1 we have a total of about 52 soccer stars headed our way on Monday 4/4. We want this to be an enjoyable experience for all, and we believe that we can assure more success with more adults and thus smaller soccer teams. Please let Mr. Girard (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you are interested and able to help on either Mondays or Tuesdays (or both) after school. We sure would appreciate your help.
At recess, we walk to get more steps!
The students got to present their energy robots this Friday!
2B is so excited to welcome Amiah to Austin Elementary!
