Field Trip Reminders

On October 15th we are going to Elm Fork Education Center on the UNT campus. Please return the permission slip and $7.50 payment by this Friday. Your child will need to bring a lunch and drink in a disposable container. It's a great hands-on learning experience!


On Friday, November 6th we are loading a charter bus and going to Austin! It will be a wonderful day of learning about Texas history. Please return the permission slip that indicates your child's shirt size and sandwich preference along with the $90 fee. The $90 cost covers educational materials, a shirt, lunchbag (with a lunch), water bottle, pizza dinner, and admission to museums. It is a fun-filled, action-packed educational day!

What Are We Learning?

  • Math: We are finishing our first unit on place value and addition and subtraction. We are set to begin multiplication.
  • Science: Matter matters! We've discussed physical properties of matter, including states of matter and how heat changes matter. Up next is mixtures and solutions.
  • Social Studies: We are comparing the lives of contemporary and traditional Native Americans.
  • Reading: We are working on KidBlog to post about what we've read. We are practicing cyber etiquette by responding to others' blogs. Reading homework is to create a signpost about the book they are reading at home and to comment on a classmate's signpost. This needs to happen twice a week.
  • Writing: We love sacred writing time! Each day there is a new bit of trivia and vocabulary to write about or students may continue a writing that they have started previously. Ask your child what s/he wrote about today.
