January 28 Week at a Peek

Dear students and families,

It is exciting to see students grow and progress with skills, knowledge and abilities.  Here are just a few of the areas where I have seen significant growth:

  • notebook skills in math
  • free journal writing
  • gaining deeper understanding of multiplication and strategies like “partial products”
  • speedier transitions from one activity to another
  • map skills
  • idioms
  • nutrition and the digestive system
  • embedding photos in blog posts

Keep up the great work, everyone!

Class Nutritional Potluck Lunch

  • Plans are underway for our class lunch on Tuesday, February 5 (11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.).
  • Parents, please check your emails this week for menu updates as I receive parent confirmations.
  • Thank you for your support!  The students are very excited! 🙂
