Friday is a Half Day!

Just a reminder that on Friday, January 31st, the kids will be dismissed early for an afternoon Superintendent's Conference day. Dismissal will begin around 11:40.


Mrs Close's Class ~ The kids have been super busy working with fractions. They've decomposed fractions, added them, and spent time thinking about how the size of the whole impacts the size of the fractions. We even spent time adding mixed numbers. During the coming week our focus will be on adding tenths and hundredths and subtracting fractions.


Our major experiment was breaking the force! Kids worked in cooperative groups to break the force of attraction. They always have fun when the learning is hands on!


Explorers ~ We'll be wrapping up our Explorer work on Monday with the last two google slide presentations. On Friday the kids took a short ELA assessment. That will come home in Friday Folders on the 31st. Tuesday, we'll begin learning about Colonial America!

PAWS ~ Most of the kids have finished with the most recent task which was writing about their favorite restaurant in Canandaigua. Those will be coming home Friday too!

Read Aloud ~ We are about halfway through Matilda by Roald Dahl. I hope the kids are enjoying it!

Small Groups ~ We are meeting regulatory and reading shorter text. I love meting with the kids to talk about characters and text. They always have so much to say!

Picture Book Friday ~ Luca is scheduled to read to us tomorrow and I'll be looking for a girl to read on the 31st!

Valentine's Day

Thank you so much! The sign up is almost full. Looks like we only need chocolate ice cream. Please click on the link below if you're willing and able to help out. I apologize, I forgot to include the class list for the kids to use for their valentines. I'll be sure to get that in the coming Friday Folder.


It's that time of the year for our class to join chorus. Kids will get information from Ms. Kafka this week in class. I don't know all the details.......but I do know they'll meet from 2:30-3:00 each Thursday. Look for the official letter later in the week.
