8 Expectations

1. We will value one another as unique and special individuals!

6. We will recognize every effort and applaud it!

The Life Principles

1. Courtesy - we will be discussing the meaning and importance of the word.

2. Effort -doing one's best in an endeavor. Ask your learner if they are giving their best effort at school!

3. Compassion: ability to share another's feelings or ideas.

4. Respect - paying proper attention or showing consideration to others.

You are a genius and the world needs your contribution!

Here's what we need to KNOW!

Math: We will continue our work with Math Menu's this week. The kids love it and aren't completely finished with their work from last week! Students are given choices of the activities they wish to complete to demonstrate their knowledge of money. This allows each individual student to work at his or her own independent level. Ask your learner which activities they have chosen to complete this week for their math menu!


Science: We are finishing up our unit on insects. This week students will have the opportunity to design their own bug in which they will describe its' life cycle, anatomy and adaptations. Can't wait to see what they come up with!


Language Arts: This week we are working on sequencing and retelling the beginning middle and end of stories. We will be working on this task in reading as well as in writing. When you are reading with your learner at home ask them to recall the beginning, middle and end of the book. This will improve their comprehension. We will use this week to review reading and writing strategies we have learned for the first 9 weeks.


Social Studies: This week we will begin research on two important inventors from history. We will learn about George Washington Carver and Robert Fulton. These two men have exhibited individualism and inventiveness!
