Conversation Starters

As a way to foster conversations with your child about what we are learning, please ask him/her the following:


How have things changed from "long ago" to the "present"? (clothing, travel, houses, food)

Magical Mathematicians

Please read the following problem with your child and help him solve the problem.


Landen had 5 pumpkins. Macayla had 5 pumpkins. How many did they have all together? (Ask your child to write the equation - 5 + 5 = 10 and draw an illustration to show the problem.)


Your child can earn a special reward by drawing a picture to illustrate the math problem above. Please return the math work on Monday.

Reading in Action

Read a story to your child. Ask your child...


How are you like the main character? How are you different?
