WHAT WE ARE LEARNING THIS WEEK

Math: This week we are focusing on more measurement!

We will continue to sharpen our skills in addition, subtraction and multiplication as the year continues.

Here are some good websites to try at home for math skills.

Science: This week we are starting a new unit on Air and Weather! We will begin by introducing air this week!


Language Arts: We are wrapping up our middle of the year testing for language arts. Students will be taking their MAP test, the online assessment, this week. This will give us more information on the growth of each individual student as well as goals for improvement.

Extracurricular Activities

It's that time of year again where soccer, baseball, basketball, etc. are starting again! If your child is a part of any extracurricular activities, I would LOVE to be able to come!


Please send their schedule to school so I can mark them down!

~Valentine's Day Party~

On February 14th, we will celebrate Valentine's Day with two special activities!


The first activity will be a class pizza party during lunch with just our class. If your child would like to have pizza with us, please send in $2 cash to cover the price of pizza, a juice box and a cookie. Make sure to put the money in a labeled envelope so it doesn't get mixed up or lost! If your child would prefer to not have pizza, please plan to send a disposable sack lunch.


This is also when we will be exchanging valentine cards and we will need a special place to put them! Your child's at home project will be to decorate a bag or box for our valentines. Please make sure your child has an opening in his/her bag or box big enough to fit small cards/trinkets. Students can start bringing these in to school on Wednesday, February 12th. Your child is also welcome to bring in valentines for each student in our class, but I am unable to send home a class list due to confidentiality.


The second activity will be our class party! Stay tuned for more information to come from our fabulous room moms that are working hard to plan our party in the afternoon on February 14th! Parents are welcome to join us for the afternoon party!
