What Are We Learning This Week?

Reading We are working towards building our Daily 5 stamina, making inferences based on our background knowledge and building conversational skills with peers.

Math We are working towards finishing up our addition and subtraction unit which will wrap up place value. We will have a test on Friday.

Science This week we are jumping from nutrition into the moon and moon phases. Students will be learning to use terms such as waxing, waning, rotation, revolution, orbit and moon phases.

Writing This week we will wrap up editing and revising our drafts of our personal narratives.

Student of The Week

Anny C is our student of the week! Anny earned this by being so empathetic towards classmates and always working hard. Anny does not let a challenge slow her down in class, she powers through and works independently or with a partner to reach success. Anny is always empathetic and kind towards other classmates.

Anny, we are lucky to have you and we enjoy your bright personality

Contacting Mrs. Locke

Please feel free to contact me always with questions or concerns. Because I am working on bettering myself through the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People I am scheduling all of my activities this year. Please know that I would love to conference with you but request at least 48 hours notice, 1 week is ideal.

If you are changing your child's mode of transportation, please CALL the classroom. I need all transportation changes by 1:30 PM each day to make sure children get home safely.

Thank you for trusting me with your most prized possessions, your children.
