Notes and Updates

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a restful, fun winter break. Please feel free to have students bring in pictures or other artifacts from the break to share with the rest of the students.

Before break students had so much fun enjoying winter rotations, learning about Qatar, and enjoying hot chocolate and other treats during our class party. Thank you to all the parents who helped out and came to join the fun!

At the end of our social studies unit students present a project to show their learning. Our students voted and decided to present a diorama, which means we are in need of shoeboxes. If you have any and would be willing to donate them I would greatly appreciate it. Please bring them in by the end of this week so students can get started right away.

I have uploaded more photos and unit letter so please make sure to look in our google folders by clicking the link: tinyurl.com/skeane1g.

Scroll down to read about what we will be learning next week and important dates and information for next week.

Special Announcements


Math Packet

On Thursday a binder of math games was sent home in your child's home bag in a brown envelope. Some of these are games we have played before, and many we will be playing in class after the new year. Please feel free to use these as a fun way to keep your child's skills sharp over the break. The cards needed for each game are included with the packet on yellow card stock. Please keep this game binder because we will be using them as part of the homework assignments.
