Thank you for your commitment to your child's education!

What's New?

Reading: This week we moved into our Reading curriculum and are discussing Main Idea and Details, along with asking questions.

Math: The unit we are in has us diving into multiple strategies to add and subtract numbers. Having your child help count out money, add and subtract using household items (spoons, beans, legos), and asking them to read the time on the clock are all ways to help boost there current math skills! We will have a Math Test on Wednesday, October 19th!

Health: Our focus has been on how to keep our bodies healthy by eating the right foods and exercising. They are making a weekly plan to be physically active!

Spelling: Your child's weekly spelling words are in his/her planner. Purple spelling sheets will be sent home on Tuesdays and spelling tests are on Fridays!
