Here are the weekly updates for the end of Quarter 2:
This Saturday, December 15th we will have our first make up day for the snow day. School begins at the regular time with the first bell ringing at 8:45 and the last bell ringing at 9:15. Students will be dismissed at 12:45pm. During Saturday school, lunch is not served so please make sure your student has a “hearty” snack packed for school. There will be no before or after school care offered. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns
Tower of Books: Please make sure your student brings their favorite FICTION book from this quarter’s challenge in by Friday. Our book tasting this quarter will take place on Wednesday December 19th at 12:00pm 🙂 Hope to see you there!
Science- We will conclude our unit on sound. Students have been visiting Mr. Lamanna’s room for some sound lessons as we have collaborated on this unit. Please look for information tonight on the sound project due next Thursday. Here are some websites that can help your child with the project:
Math–We will continue to learn about place value and then move on to comparing three digit numbers using place value for explanation. Next week we will finish up and review comparing numbers. We will take our third unit 4 assessment on Wednesday, December 19th.
Reading– Over the next several weeks, we will be administering middle of the year MCLASS assessments. The results will be shared when they are completed. We are starting our unit on how to compare and contrast important points on the same topic. Students will be reading passages on nonfiction topics like pandas and famous monuments. They will be assessed next week.
