Reading

Our DEB groups are in full swing. Our focus on DEB is reading. Students in Mrs. Cannis' and Mrs. Boots' classes will be bringing a book home each week in a ziploc bag. Please spend some time reading this book with your child. We are focusing on Fiction stories this month. Students will be able to identify the characters, the setting, the problem, and solution from each story we read.

Math

We are finishing up Unit 1 math. I will be sending home some review pages for homework to help assist with difficult topics.

Fact families, true/false, addition, subtraction, and missing numbers will be assessed after next week.

Spiders

Today we began talking about spiders. The students will learn many facts about these interesting arachnids over the next few weeks. Look for a spider report form to go home. The students can spend time researching whatever spider they want to discover many new facts about.

Weather

Now that fall is here, our weather is changing. Please make sure your child wears appropriate clothing to go outside. We go outside unless it's below zero or raining.
