Science/Social Studies

We are beginning our unit of study of the Native Americans.  I love this unit!!  
We will take a field trip to the Plains Conservation Center in Aurora on October 18th.  


On Monday, we will take our reading assessment for the Lucy Caulkins reading program.  Tuesday is assessment day, and then during the rest of the week, we will work with our Story Works Magazine.  We read an article and watched a video about the Hindenburg for our first non-fiction piece. 
During writing, we will create super sentences and learn how to write a good short response to writing, using RACE.  You can ask your child to explain RACE. 


  Here is our specials schedule for the following weeks:

                 Aug. 27    PE and Tech
                 Sept. 3     Art and Music
                 Sept. 10   Tech and PE
                 Sept. 17    Music and Art
                 Sept. 24   PE and Tech


 Yay! Our class had the most turn out for Papa Murphy's pizza night, so we won pizza for the classroom.  This Friday at lunchtime, we will have our pizza party.  Your child will not need to bring lunch unless they do not like pizza.  

We have learned that that the original date for our Back to School Night is the same night as Mountain Vista High School. We know that we have families with students both at Sand Creek and at Mountain Vista and that this is causing a hardship for them. We feel that the information that both schools provide during this event is important for our parents to hear and be able to fully participate in. With that being said, we are re-scheduling our Back to School Night. We will be having our event one week later on August 30, 2018 from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM. 

Our Back to School Night will begin at 6:00 PM with a general session in our gym. We will conclude our general session and our families will have the opportunity to attend sessions with their classroom teachers. We will have two separate rotations so you will be able to attend multiple grade levels if needed. 

This is an event for our parent(s)/guardian(s), so we kindly ask that you not bring your students. Connections Church, located across the street from Sand Creek, will be offering free child care for children ages 5 and up. We will be sending more information about this in the SCE Weekly News. 

Here is the link to sign up for Assessment day:  August 28, 2018
  • Assessment Day on Tuesday, August 28th

  • Picture day August 29th


Your child should be bringing home a math sheet each weeknight, with the exception of Fridays.

I will also assign typing pal days.  Learning how to type will help the students with much of third grade and future grades.

Here are the instructions for typing pal.  Tuesdays and Thursdays will be our typing pal homework days.  They can certainly do more if they choose.

We are beginning module one for Eureka - Properties of multiplication and division and solving properties with units 2-5. We made array cities to show our knowledge of arrays and counting rows for multiplication.  They are hanging in the room and you will get to see them at back to school night this week.
