Upcoming Events



Friday, May 18th- Field Day
Friday, May 25h- Last Day of School/Report Cards released

Literacy



The kids are really enjoying writing about African animals in their elephant booklets. Mrs. Durante's students are presenting their animals reports to us and we are becoming animal experts!

Sight Word Practice- Please check your child's reading group book bag for the sight words to practice. Knowing these tricky words will help your child increase his/her reading fluency. 

Social Studies / Science



Elena's dad, Mr. Birckenstaedt, shared photos and information about South America. He was born and raised in Argentina. Ask your child to share what they learned. I was fascinated by the 12 lane highways and the brightly  painted homes. .

Homework


Homework should not exceed more than 30 minutes a night. Our purpose is to build responsibility and practice skills.
  • Read nightly for 10-15 minutes from their reading bags. Practice reading and writing the sight words.

  • I-ready reading and math (please do at least one lesson for each subject per week)


Math

The students have been working at their own pace on Zearn math on the chrome books. The sprints are fact fluency quizzes and the lessons teach the students math strategies through videos and activities. 

Specials Schedule



Monday thru Thursday- Technology and P.E.
Friday- Please turn in library books for the end of the school year.
