Week of 9/3-9/6

Wow… what a GREAT week! This is going to be the BEST YEAR EVER!! I have enjoyed getting to know each of my students. The bag projects were a HUGE success! Thank you all for your support and help with that. We have talked a lot this week about our goals (or rules) for this year. They all center around being safe, responsible, and respectful. Talk to your child about what we discussed this week.

Next week will be jumping into learning in our content areas. In reading, we are going to be reviewing/learning about our Daily 5 centers. In math, we are going to be learning about graphing and different types of graphs. For social studies, we are going to be continuing to learn about rules and we are going to be adding in rules and laws in the community.
