Calendar


  • In our class, we do calendar every morning. In our calendar routine we work on multiple different math concepts such as...

- Place Value

- Money - value of each coin

- Number of the Day- how many days we have been in school

- Adding

- Subtracting -with Attendance

- Counting

- Part Part Total Diagram


Continue to practice skip counting by 1's, 2's, 5's, and 10's at home. Students also need to be working on recognizing numbers and using them to add, take away, etc.

In Social Studies...

We will continue with our Second Step lessons. These lessons focus on the social emotional development of each learner. There are Second Step homelinks on our grade level website under the parent page. We will also use this time to continue to build our classroom community. Building that community is imperative for learning to take place.

Principle's Reading Challenge

Monroe is participating in the Principal's Reading Challenge. Each class will collect the total number of books they read to come to a grand total of 3,000 books for the entire school. If we reach this goal, we will celebrate by moving Dr. Connery's office to the roof of the school building and having a celebration. The celebration will be held on Friday, May 11th.

Attendance

One thing we are sure of at Monroe, is that we cannot reach our goals and meet the needs of all students if they are not here with us at school. Because of that, we have a continuous focus on improving our attendance. We are striving for an Average Daily Attendance of greater than 95%. Currently, as a school, we are hovering at 93%. Please help us to reach our goal by making sure your student(s) are at school on time, every day. Missing school means missing a lot of new content. We know that absences can sneak up on you. I encourage you and your family to continue to make a goal to miss fewer than five absences this year! I believe that we can do it!
