Thank you so much for meeting with me at your child's conferences this week. I'm looking forward to accomplishing the goals that we talked about throughout the year! We had a great week of learning despite our shorter days. The students began learning how to write in cursive! We will continue this throughout the year. We also completed several health lessons to go along with Red Ribbon Week. We learned how tobacco, alcohol, and drugs can negatively affect our bodies. And in math we learned all about multiplying and dividing by 5s, and 10s. We also visited the science lab this week and did some great observations and experiments with different types of soils. Your child also brought home an example of the 3 layers of soil (bedrock, subsoil, and topsoil).
Next week, we will continue learning about soils in science. In writing, we will revisit narrative story writing. And in math, we will continue with multiplication and division. Please continue to practice memorizing facts with your child. Some of this week's lessons will focus on the 3s.
We will be presenting our pumpkin character projects throughout the week and then I will send them home on Friday. They turned out so cute! I'm so proud of all the effort that went into putting them together. Thank you!
Here are some photos and videos from the week. Enjoy!
