Conversation Starters

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


What is Ichthyology? What is an Ichthyologist?

Magical Mathematicians

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



Alynn had 10 snowballs. How can she break them into two groups/sets? (2 snowballs and 8 snowballs, 4 snowballs and 6 snowballs, etc.)



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

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.
