Dear Families of Room 217,


Greetings!  We have recently launched a new unit  How We Express Ourselves. Students are working on  what elements make up fables, tall tales, myths and legends.

 Please continue to have your child read daily and record it in their planners.  Students should also be practicing their multiplication and division facts nightly for 15 minutes.  This little bit of practice will goes a long way! Thanks for supporting these learning experiences at home! Our kids have made strong gains!
