Ms. Schaum's Class Newsletter

Week of December 7-11, 2015

Nut Free Classroom

We have some learners with severe nut allergies, so our classroom is designated as a nut free zone. Please do not send any food to school that contains nuts. Thank you for helping us keep our classroom safe for all learners!

Curriculum Corner

Reading: We will be focusing on main idea and details.


Writing: We will be learning about how to write expository text. We will use a circle map, multi flow map, and a flow map to prewrite before our first drafts.


Math: We will be learning about money - counting and identifying coins.


Science: We will be studying liquids.


Social Studies: We will be learning about goods and services.
