The students really enjoy presenting as our scientist. Please contact me if you need to change a date or need an idea. You are welcome to bring in or do a small experiment with the class. Just let me know if I need to plan on extra time.


Keep on reading at home, We will continue to learn new words and introduce rules for spelling. We will start to talk about long vowels and learn some of the basic rules for sounding out these new words.

Our Math focus will concentrate on the different seasons and the months of the year.



I have introduced the children to a new reading program that they can play at home on your computer. It is called, Teach your monster to read. Some students have had a chance to begin using the program at school and may continue at home. I have set all the children up with an account. No password. They only need to type in their first name.
