October 6 Notes
Recap of this week:
Math: end of unit math test-kids did great! Starting time and measurement. Please help your child practice telling time on an analogue (not digital) clock at home. Please practice + and - facts (1-10) at home. It's very helpful to have these memorized for the students to be successful with multiplication and division.
Reading & Social Studies: Essential Question: How do landmarks help us understand our country's history?
We read a book about the National Mall in Washington D.C. and Mount Rushmore.
Only ONE MORE WEEK to take AR tests for the first quarter! An updated AR progress report came home in planners last evening-please sign and return if your child is still working toward his/her goal.
Religion: We learned about our guardian angels and the Holy Spirit.
Science: We are finishing up our plant unit. Posters are due next Wednesday.
