Classroom News

Butterfly Release - Thank you to everyone that came to our butterfly release last Monday! I hope everyone was able to see our pictures and short story on the Madison Courier (a link is provided below in case you didn't)!

Vision Screening - A note was sent home with your child's vision testing information.

Parent Read Aloud - If you are interested in reading a book to our class, please let me know! I would love to have at least one parent per month come read their favorite children's book or book to go along with something we are learning.

Parent Teacher Conferences - I am still needing a few more conference forms to be turned in so I can schedule conferences. The staff is working together so that if you have more than one child here, their times will be close together. I will be sending home your confirmed time once I have received all forms.

What We're Learning This Week

Writing: Informational Writing - The students have picked a topic and will begin researching this week.

Reading: Penguin Chick, main idea and supporting details

Spelling: Words with V/CV or VC/V pattern (C - consonant V- vowel)

Math: Ch. 3 Math test on Tuesday, Ch. 4 will be introduction to Multiplication

Science: We will be doing the Star Lab one day this week and learn more about space

Social Studies: None this week

*We will be doing STAR testing this week for Reading and Math. Every child must show at least a year's growth. They took these tests at the beginning of the year so this time around they should get a score a little bit higher. We will continue to take these tests throughout the year to check for progress.
