Lobello's Letter

Week In Review

We had a great week this week. I am really impressed with how great everyone did with the new homework on Scootpad. I love this app, it gives me great information that goes along with the new Common Core Standards that the District is adopting. Please keep in mind that homework is meant to be independent work which reviews what we are learning in class!

We continued working on adjectives this week and made some very special adjective flowers for our "garden." We also learned about symmetry and made some symmetrical butterflies which are now hanging in our room. Can you tell we have spring fever?

For writing this week we wrote about how we would "go green." The students had some great ideas.

We are still reading The One and Only Ivan and we are still loving it!

Please me sure to mark your calendars with the dates at the bottom of the letter!

Summer Reading information will be coming home this week. We had a lot of fun with this last year at Henking so please be sure to check it out! I am really excited about the books this year!!!
