Learning Experiences

Happy New Year and welcome back to school.  I hope you enjoyed winter break. I am looking forward to getting back to our school routines.

Upon our return, we will continue with our Sharing the Planet Unit.  Our explorations will allow us to dig into inherited and acquired traits. We will read the book called the THE CODE to get us going.

Thank you to all the families that came to our Folk Tale Festival.  We had a great time. Our students wrote some wonderful  stories. We appreciate all the thoughtful comments and willingness to read so many great stories. 

We continue to use the Think Central Site to improve our math fact fluency.  Your children have been patient risk takers learning how to use the Think Central soft ware to take quick quizzes and unit tests. They are so open minded and willing to try these new features.  Your children should continue to practice their facts nightly.  All though our math unit has been uncovering place value and ungrouping/grouping with addition & subtraction, nightly practice is still vital.

Thanks for all your support! Happy 2018!
