We have covered all the text types for writing. Students will continue to practice writing their opinions, creating narratives, and conveying information as we close out the year. It is very important that students are able to independently write 2-3 sentences as they enter first grade. This is a great time to practice and master the skills needed for first grade!
Science and Social Studies
In social studies, student learned about holidays, the people and events celebrated, U.S. symbols, community helpers, maps and globes, and rules. Our last unit is personal finance. We will be teaching students about U.S currency and the difference between goods and services. We will be providing activities and assignments over the remaining weeks to teach students the final social studies subject matter.

Q & A
You can take a picture of the completed work and upload to Class Dojo or email your classroom teacher. Please reach out to your child's teacher for additional information.
If grades are only being given in reading and math, why does my child need to complete work in other subject areas?
Although grades will only be given for reading in math, there are still other standards students need to master before moving on to first grade.
Can my child turn in missing assignments from the week of March 30th?
Yes, students have two weeks to make up missing work. If in doubt, check with your child's classroom teacher.
What do I do with all my child's completed work?
You can keep it all in a folder to create a portfolio of work for your student.
