A Note From Mrs. Graham
Picture Retakes will be on Tuesday the 20th. If you would like your child to be photographed again, then send me an email before Tuesday letting me know.
We were asked to use 50 gumdrops and 100 toothpicks to make a bridge.
We were also asked to work in groups that Mrs. Graham chose for us.
The bridge actually had to bridge a gap.
The bridge activity was also intended to build working relationships with our classmates.
We found the design and building process to be challenging and fun.
Whether our bridge could hold 120 pennies or not, we enjoyed the process of working together to create our bridges. Look at those sweet smiles!

2. I am sending home paper work for you to sign your child in to XtraMath, a program that will help your child become fluent with math facts. This paper will be clipped into your child's binder on Tuesday.
In class, they will begin showing me what they know about multiplication and by working on new vocabulary for multiplication. Then we will start working with equal groups and relating addition to multiplication.
Math facts: Work on multiplying 3s by skip counting by 3s to 36. Next, work on 4s when those are mastered.
NAME: GOD OF TRUTH
Lesson: A Sad Day in the Garden
Theme: God always tells the truth- He never lies.
Memory Verse: God did this so that, by two unchanging things in which it is impossible
for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly
encouraged. Hebrews 6:18
