Conversation Starters

As a way to foster conversations with your child about what we are learning, please ask him/her the following:


What have you learned this week about magnets?

Magical Mathematicians

Please read the following problem with your child and help him solve the problem.


Have your child create his own subtraction word problem. Write the equation and illustrate.



(If your child is ready, perhaps challenge him with higher numbers, perhaps numbers 15-20.)


Your child can earn a special reward by drawing a picture to illustrate the math problem above. Please return the math work on Monday.

Reading in Action

Read a story to your child. Ask your child...


How does the story start? How does the story end?

Family Activities

Please share family activities with us. We will try to provide time for your child to share about their special activities in class and also post some of the pictures in our newsletter. This is a great way for us to share with one another and build our classroom community/family.
