The new year is bringing some new changes to our learning. Specifically, we have begun an intensive study of non-fiction reading skills. Due to this change, I have determined we are going to TEMPORARILY abandon our reading logs as homework. The students will be bringing home a reader's notebook. In that notebook, students will have specific assignments to complete. For the next few weeks, these notebooks will be used in place of the reading log.
We will finish up our current math unit on Tuesday and there will be a test on Wednesday. The concept of elapsed time and measuring to the nearest 1/4 inch and half inch has been challenging. We will review here at school, but some reminders at home certainly would be helpful as well.
FYI, I am hopeful iPads will be coming home again in a week or so (maybe two at most).
Finally, please remember that students will have outside recess unless it is raining or the temperature. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor play.
