Field Trip

Please turn in your child's field trip form and $3 by this Friday if you haven't already.

Student Treasures Book

In last week's newsletter I talked about how we would be making a class book that would be sent away to be published into a hardback book! We finished it! Our book is about our predictions in 10 years, when we're graduating high school! You may purchase one for $19.95. A form in an envelope is coming home today. Please return the form in the envelope by this Friday. Even is you are not ordering a class book, please just check "no" on the form and sign your name and return. We need every child's signed form back to receive a classroom copy of our book. If you misplace yours, please let me know and I’ll send home a new one. If you are paying by credit card, you’ll do that online, print and attach the order confirmation, and still sign and return the sheet in the envelope to me.

What we are Learning:


We will estimate and measure items that are about 1 inch, 1 foot, and 1 yard, estimate and measure the lengths and heights of objects in paper clips, cubes, centimeters and meters, use addition and subtraction to solve measurement problems, and measure to compare length and express the length difference in a standard length unit.


There are no spelling words this week.


We will use context clues to figure out unknown words.
