Highlights from last week....

The kids came back and were ready to learn! Monday began the district's testing week. We administered multiple academic assessments over the week including the GATES reading assessment and the DIBELS fluency assessment.


In ELA, we learned about weather. Our sight words were little and was. We are just cruising through this year!


In Math, we worked on composing and decomposing numbers.

This week our class will be reading stories about how to stay safe in bad weather. Children will also learn about severe weather conditions, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, earthquakes, droughts, and floods.

Here are some activities that you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we will be practicing.

Half Day on Wednesday

We will have a half day of school on Wednesday. Please note that work is sent home with your child in their folder on that day. Please have your child complete the work and send it back the next day. Thank you!

Supplies

We have been trying to keep classrooms clean and germ free. With all the cleaning and hand washing, we are running low on hand soap and Clorox wipes. We are also running low on dry erase markers and glue sticks. If you would like to donate some to our classes, we would very much appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
