Happy April!

Time is marching on....

It is hard to believe that we only have 40 more days of learning together. Let's make the most of it!


Reading / Social Studies

  • We have just begun a unit on culture and heritage. Be looking for some home to school connections about your family heritage as we incorporate some technology.


Math

  • We are finishing up 2 and 3 digit addition and subtraction. Next week we will begin basic multiplication and division strategies. They will not be memorizing facts, but we will be working with strategies to understand the facts.


Science

  • It's planting season! We will be very active in the Edgar Memorial Garden here at school. We will learn about soil and will eventually be asking for contributions to the compost pile.


Writing

  • We are working on making opinion statements and supporting them with reasons. We will also be writing to inform.

iPads are here!

We are certain that your child has come home talking about the i-ceremony on Friday. We have begun to implement new technology in the classroom with the arrival of our iPads.

Orders of Business

Continue Reading for the challenge each night.


Please continue to check for homework each night and sign the planner.

This is a good time of year to ask your child if they need any new crayons, glue or other supplies for their desk.


Reminder to send in charged devices so that students can access STRIDE academy during the day.


Look for information coming home about field trips.
