Mrs. Baker's Class Newsletter

March 6, 2015

What is going on?

Dear Parents,

I give you back your children, the same children you confidently entrusted to my care last fall. I give them back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature than they were then. Although they would of attained this growth in spite of me, it has been my happy privilege to watch their personality unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development, each new success, each new expansion of itself. I give them back reluctantly for having spent seven months together in the narrow confines of a classroom, we have grown closer, have become a part of each other and we shall retain a little of each other.

Ten years from now if we met on the street, your children and I, a light will spring to our eyes, a smile to our lips, and we shall feel a bond of understanding once more, this bond we feel today. We lived, loved, played, studied, learned, and enriched our lives together this year. I wish it could go on forever, but give them back I must. Take care of them for they are precious.

Remember that I shall always be interested in your children whoever they become. Their joys and sorrows I’ll be happy to share. Please call me if there is anything further I can ever do for them.

Sincerely,

Cameron Baker


We will be learning…

Math: After reviewing the concepts of money, multiplication and division students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge on an end of unit assessment.


Reading: Students will compare contemporary and traditional versions of folktales in regards to characters and plot. Students will also identify the moral lesson as the theme in these folktales.


Writing: In Writing Workshop we will be focusing on editing and revising a piece.


Science: Students will identify factors in the environment, including temperature and precipitation, that affect growth and behavior of animals such as migration, hibernation, and dormancy of living things.
