Weekly Family Notes: Well, it looks like winter may have one last big surprise for us. I hope you did not put away the snow pants yet! Town Voting Day has been rescheduled to Saturday due to the snow storm. Get out early and avoid the lines. DON’T FORGET-Students will be voting too! This week in…Reading; Students will learn to keep track of storylines by stopping to think and jot information about the main events, slowing down, rereading and asking questions when something does not make sense in a text. Writing; Students will be writing a strong and long nomination for a book. They will work to write strong opinions by using quotes from books or comparisons. Math; Students will add, subtract and estimate sums and differences with money values. If you have any questions or concerns the best way to reach me is by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dates to Remember:
Please make sure all students come to school prepared to go outside. All boys and girsl must wear snow pants and boots if there is snow on the ground. This keeps them warm as well as dry. Of course they should have a warm jacket, a hat, and mittens or gloves. Thank you for taking the time to help your child come prepared.
