~November News~

I can’t believe it’s November already.  This month will be very busy so please look at the school calendar as well as reminders sent home for Early Dismissal Days and Parent Teacher Conferences.  Everyone should have received their scheduled time and day for Parent Teacher Conferences.  Please notify the school if you cannot attend.

This month we will continue to discuss and learn about animal adaptations.  In SS the students will continue to work on their Map Skills as well as learn about Veteran’s Day.  In Math we will be moving into working with strategies and memorizing particular Multiplication Tables.  For Reading we will focus on our stamina to help make us become better readers, and overall skills to help identify basic story elements within a text.  We will also be completing our Thanksgiving writing as well as continuing weekly journal prompts.  I am going to continue to try to get the students on i-Ready as much as possible.

Birthdays:   Logan & Olivia
