Ratzlaff/Rogers April Newsletter
EJSMS ~ 2016
Welcome back from Spring Break!
In Mathematics we will be looking at Fractions and 3D shapes. Please continue to have your child practice their mathematics skills on IXL Math online. We are working towards a class goal of 40,000 questions answered, so any practice at home adds to the final total!
In Language Arts this month we are using the theme of "Space Invaders From Beyond" to inspire our creative writing projects. Any books or materials you may have that you can lend to our classroom will be greatly appreciated.
In Science we are finishing up our building unit and will soon start learning about rocks and minerals.
In Social Studies we will be learning about how people in various communities and countries work and live together. The students will come to understand and appreciate how many things affect how people live and work together, such as the land, it's resources, and the activities people get involved with.
**If you haven't turned in the yellow form for swimming lessons yet, please send it in asap with your child. (Please send a note in your childs LINK Book if you are in need of a new yellow form). Swimming lessons begin in May.
Thanks again for all that you do!
