Mrs. Lyons' Class Week 7
Math, Science, Social Studies
September 28 - October 2
Thanks so much to those who came to Open House! We had a great night! If you did not make it, but would like a copy of my syllabus and Math brochure, just send an email or note and I will send it home with your child.
I cannot believe we are starting week 7 already! I am looking forward to the cooler weather and October activities! I love this time of year. It's a time where we can really dig into some great thematic lessons! October is a great month for lessons on pumpkins and creepy things like bats and spiders! The kids have fun while learning new vocabulary and close reading techniques.
We will be scheduling conferences soon. An announcement will be made when the schedule is open.
