As we finish out the school year students will demonstrate proficiency in addition and subtraction equations and word problems. Students will use a variety of strategies to show their thinking and their vocabulary to explain how they solved the problem. Students will also explore finding equal shares of shapes and review telling and writing time to the hour and half hour.


We are learning about the environment around us and how to protect it in a variety of ways. Students are working with a variety of texts, identifying the main topic and important details, and using the photographs for support. Students are using their knowledge to complete a variety of writings and answer questions.

Social Studies:

In social studies we are finishing up our transportation unit and moving into learning about maps and how to read a map.

  • Please make sure that students leave ALL toys, dolls, and stuffed animals at home, so they do not become a distraction to our learning.

  • As it becomes closer to the end of the year students will start to bring home extra supplies that are no longer needed, and important information so please be sure to check bookbags and folders daily. Thanks!
