School to Home Connection
News for the week of February 16-20, 2015
What we are learning this coming week...
Math: Students will model, create, and describe contextual multiplication situations in which equivalent sets of concrete objects are joined.
Reading: Students will explore poetry! We will discover how poets use sensory language to write their poetry and how that language produces mental images for the reader.
Writing: In Writing Workshop we will be working on procedural texts. We will also be writing to two writing prompts this week.
Social Studies: Students will learn how to understand map elements such as title, orientation, symbols, compass rose, and legend/keys. They will read and create maps within home and community.
I can't wait to see who will be added to the list next week. Keep up the hard work!
Jump rope for heart
Good afternoon parents,
This week in your child's Thursday (2/12/15) folder there will be information about Jump Rope For Heart, which is sponsored by the American Heart Association. The next two weeks we will be discussing healthy hearts with your children and jumping rope for Jump Rope For Heart. If you or another family member or friend would like to donate to this worthy cause, please feel free to do so! The goal for this year is $5000 and this money will go directly to the American Heart Association.
This year Jump Rope For Heart has requested ALL donations be made in the form of a check or online. Please refrain from sending cash donations. Please read the information included in your child's Thursday folder! If you have any questions about this program, please contact Mrs. Dyer or Mrs. Osteen.
February 27 is the end of Jump Rope for Heart. Please send all donations by this date.
