Welcome back and Happy New Year! Hope you all had a restful holiday and time to be with friends and family. Last week was a blur but we are back in our routine of working hard and making every minute count. We started a new activity of reading and discussing the elements of a mystery book. All students have a mystery book that they should be reading for homework and will also be given time to read in class daily. The kids can also use this book as their book report book project for the genre of mystery and possibly take an AR test on it too. Don’t forget to record book on the reading log.

Next week the kids will be rotating to Mrs. Ratto/Curtis room for Bully Proofing and the start of the energy science unit. We have completed learning all the lower case cursive letters and will now start the upper case letters…when we are finished, the kids will be required to write in cursive , except in math and spelling test. We are taking a brief break from multiplication and division, but please continue to practice math facts. Currently we are working on graphs, graphing and probability but will return to 2 digit multiplication and 3 digit division.

just a thought on: Dreams and Goals….

If you don’t know where you want to go,

any road will take you there.

Have a wonderful week, get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather, we know it will turn cold again soon.
