Hello All! What a lovely weekend. I hope you were able to enjoy the sun on Saturday! This week the class will enjoy the first of a few KinderKoncerts. Wednesday will be about a fish who is looking for friends, told and played by members of the string section of the Portland Symphony Orchestra. It should be great!
Math: We have been working on different strategies for adding and subtracting. Soon we will take the first benchmark test – covering the first four topics that we have covered.
Reading: We continue to read and talk about characters in books, what they say, what they do, and how they feel.
Writing: We are adding more details to our stories, learning how to re-read and revise. We are adding feelings, thinking, and talking.
Please note that next week there is only school on Monday and Tuesday, and dismissal is at noon.
Thanks, as always, for sharing your child with me!
