Les nouvelles (The News)

Picture day is on Tuesday!

We really enjoyed listening to the Columbus Symphony! Everyone did a great job listening and staying engaged in the concert. Merci to Mme Writsel Lopez for organizing the trip!

In math we will be taking our addition skills and strategies to word problems. We will be focusing on reading the problem, finding the important information, writing a number sentence, and solving.

In language arts we are studying fairy tales & fables. Talk about some well known fables at home, and we're always looking for the moral/lesson of the story! In writing we are focusing on parts of a sentence, such as starting with a capital, ending with punctuation, capitalizing names.

In science - we are talking about living vs non-living, as well as needs of living things. We will soon be performing simple science experiments and discussing what a hypothesis is. They will draw their observations to better understand collecting data.

Please keep up the good work with the homework, many of you are doing a great job! Thanks parents for your support in helping them and teaching them responsibility.

In October we will be focusing on being responsible. This includes being responsible in the classroom, in the cafeteria, and at recess. Please talk with your child this month about being responsible and how they can earn their certificate at the end of the month.
