Recess and Snacks

Parents,

Please be sure that children can open and close their own snacks at recess.  They have a very limited time to play/eat.  Trying to open snacks can take away from that time causing them to get frustrated and throw the snacks away rather than to try to open them.  It might be a good idea to practice at home.  Another great suggestion is to cut a small notch in the snack so that they can easily tear it.  When they have tried to use their teeth and take it to a friend or adult, it is very unsanitary.  Anything that can be done to help them prior to arriving at school would be much appreciated!

Please also remind them that we do not share our snacks at school.  As kind as that is, the school does not allow any sharing due to allergies and germs (from licking fingers and more).

Thank you for your support!

Learning for the week!

This week in class: 
Reading:   Characters Facing Challenges

Essential Question: What can we learn when we face problems?

In this unit, students will read and compare selections featuring different characters who work to resolve problems.

Math:  We’re moving to a new Module! This module will focus on addition and subtraction of length units.

  • Students will be using standard and nonstandard to measure various objects.
  • Students will measure and compare to determine how much longer one object is to another.
  • Students will solve addition and subtraction problems using a ruler.

Writing:   Students are becoming better writers as they are going through the writing process!  Although we are finishing up narrative, we will continue to practice and review this genre throughout the school year.

 

Thank you for your support!

Learning for the next few weeks

Happy Monday!

Good morning Parents,

We wanted to share with you what your kiddos will be learning this week. This will give you an idea so when you ask your child, “What did you learn today?”, you will know what to prompt for.

Language Arts: We are beginning our Government Unit in Benchmark. Our essential question that we will be exploring is Why do we need government? Students will be looking for key details and using them to formulate the main idea.

Writing: We are in the process of introducing all of the text types (narrative, informational, opinion)

Math: In math, students will be working on adding and subtracting up to 100 using multiple strategies.

Thank you for your support!
