Ms. Schaum's Class Newsletter

Week of September 28 - October 2, 2015

Nut Free Classroom

We have some learners with severe nut allergies, so our classroom is designated as a nut free zone. Please do not send any food to school that contains nuts. Thank you for helping us keep our classroom safe for all learners!

Curriculum Corner

Reading: We will be working on story elements - identifying the characters, setting, problem and solution.

Writing: We will be working on carrying on independently during Writer's Workshop. We are writing personal narratives, and this week we will focus on choosing one piece of writing that we want to publish.

Math: We will be skip counting forwards and backwards by 2s, 5s, and 10s to 120.
