Conversation Starters

As a way to foster conversations with your child about what we are learning, please ask him/her the following:


Share with your family about how we cared for our trout at school and about the release of the trout on Monday.

Magical Mathematicians

Please read the following problem with your child and help him solve the problem.


Craig had 10 cookies. He gave 5 of his cookies to his little brother. How many cookies does Craig have left?



(If your child is ready, perhaps challenge him with higher numbers, perhaps numbers 15-20.)


Your child can earn a special reward by drawing a picture to illustrate the math problem above. Please return the math work on Monday.

Read a story to your child. Ask your child...


....what is the moral of the story? Is there a lesson to be learned in the story?
