A Note from Ms. Graves

The past week was a bit off schedule due to MAPS testing in the mornings. We have one more session this Sunday morning and the students seem to be responding very well to the format. To encourage movement after the assessments we have been enjoying group games. Ask your child about blob tag and the challenges of having to work together as a team.

Students will be bringing home work from their plant life cycle study this coming week as we have moved on to looking at insect life cycles. Students will be assessed on this sicence unit after Eid. Please see the plant life cycle image below and feel free to have you child talk you through to prepare for the end of unit test.

Also we have been practicing math addition drills all week and if you would like to make flashcards at home for you child to practice that would be wonderful! Here are the facts they should know in a snap:

  • Combinations of 10: 1+9 and 9+1, 2+8 and 8+2, 3+7 and 7+3, 4+6 and 6+4, 5+5
  • Doubles: 1+1, 2+2, 3+3, 4+4, 5+5, 6+6, 7+7, 8+8, 9+9, 10+10, 11+11, 12+12
  • Near Doubles: 1+2, 2+3, 3+4, 4+5, 5+6, 6+7, 7+8, 8+9, 9+10, 10+11, 11+12
