Hello, Forrester families!

Thank you in advance for your support at home, and please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.




Science and Social Studies

This year, our class will be alternating our science and social studies units. Since we will be alternating content areas of study, you can expect your child to begin bringing home the social studies OR their science journal in their expandable file each night. This is here for students to use as a study tool as we move through the unit. Please make sure your child’s journal comes back to school each day to use in the classroom during instruction. 

We are beginning our new science unit this week on Food Chains. In this unit, we will be learning about the living things in a food chain and how they all depend on each other for survival. We will be testing on this unit on January 15th.


We are beginning our unit on TEMPERATURE. Students will become familiar with measuring on a thermometer using the metric (Celsius) as well as the customary (Farenheit) units of measurement. Next, we will be practicing telling time to the nearest minute as well as elapsed time! Please review this information nightly with your child to be sure they are confident in these strategies!

Tuesday Folders

Please remember to check your child’s Tuesday folder every week. These folders contain graded papers, flyers on upcoming school events, and other important notices. All papers, tests, etc. that have been graded will go home in this folder weekly. In the back of this folder is a sheet that should be signed weekly. Please be sure to check this for important dates as well.

Reading logs

Beginning September 10th, students will be required to complete a weekly reading log. This log will be checked each Friday for completeness and parent signature. Each student is required to read a total of 60 minutes each week. This can be broken down whichever way best suits your family (Monday-Thursday nights). A log of 60 minutes is due at the end of each week.
