- We took our math test this past week on Unit 1: Addition & Subtraction with Fractions.
- We’ll begin our next unit on adding & subtracting whole numbers & decimals.
- We will continue to focus on mastering our multiplication and division math facts. Please practice these at home and utilize your child’s online access to Moby Max Fact Fluency homework.
- We’re working on building our foundation of establishing strong independent reading habits and diving deeper into our stories.
- With Columbus Day on Monday, we are beginning our unit called Three Worlds Meet which examines the interaction between Native Americans, Europeans, and Africans in North America.
This year for our Fall Party we are looking forward to having parties in our classrooms, however; this year will be different than in the past.
- Parents and volunteers will not be able to attend. (We will miss you!)
- I will send out an email next Friday, October 16th, asking for snack donations for our party. Snacks will need to be store-bought and individually packaged and respectful of allergies (no peanuts please).
Like previous years, we will be welcoming your children to wear costumes, if they wish. One change this year is that children will be able to wear their costumes to school and wear them the whole day. The intent behind this is to limit children gathering in the restrooms to change, and limit the number of children needing assistance from teachers and staff to get into their costumes. We invite you to send your children in a costume that includes no weapons or gore, and easily allows your child to participate in regular school routines and procedures. There will not be any masks other than COVID-19-related face masks allowed. There will not be time given to dress or apply makeup as in years past.
Please consider the questions below when deciding on a costume:
- Can they take it off themselves to use the bathroom?
- Can they fit in their seat at their desk?
- Can they go down the slide or sit in the swings?
We ask that you save bulky, inflatable, or extravagant costumes for home use, and dress in a fun and simple costume for the school day. Fall or pumpkin t-shirts are a great alternative as well.
We are thrilled at the opportunity to celebrate with your children and look forward to creating another fun and memorable school event for them.
