March 29th-30th-STAAR Test for 4th and 5th grade. No visitors on campus per TEA regulations.
We have P.E. every Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child wears tennis shoes on P.E. days. If they do not, your child has to sit out. I don't want any of our students to miss out on learning opportunities.
Ready Rosie is an excellent program that shows parents hundreds of activities to do at home! This is a free resource for Denton ISD parents and teachers. I highly recommend creating a parent account and trying out some of these math and literacy activities.Your child will have so much fun with you, they won't realize that "learning" is taking place. Go to readyrosie.com to sign up today. *When you sign up, Nelson isn't an option, so click "other".
Scholastic Book Orders
All book orders for March are due on the 31st. I encourage you to place an order, even if it is for one or two books. The kids love seeing their brand new books some in the mail and can't wait to take them home! When you order, you are building your child's library and providing them with many options for reading!
Scholastic Book Orders
What are we learning?
Word Work-We will be learning about the "in" word family as well as the "tr", "dr" and "ur" blends. These blends can be difficult for kindergartner's to hear because they are still developing concise speech articulation.
Writing-Students will be writing a non-fiction book about a topic of their choice. We will be paying close attention to making our pictures detailed.
Social Studies-Students will identify customs and traditions of their family. We will be comparing similarities and differences among families from around the world.
Math-We have been working hard on addition and subtraction! We are moving on to comparing quantities (written or with math tools). Students will have to decide who has more or less. *Comparing can be challenging if a student is still working on counting or addition/subtraction. It all builds as we move along.
