We Love to Read!

With the month of February just around the corner, we welcome in I Love To Read month and all the activities that go along with it. There will be an assembly in the gym Monday morning at 9 am, which all families are welcome to attend. I also hope to see most of you at the Family read In on February 4 from 6-7 p.m.

In Social Studies, we are currently learning about the 7 continents. Students have been listening to a song which provides facts about each continent, as well as using a special children's atlas to record facts about each continent.

In Science, we have continued to use magnets to explore how they work, as well as ways we use magnets in our every day lives.

In Math, we have continued to work on graphing and writing story problems. We have also really been working hard on some open-ended problem solving. This has proven to be very difficult for students, especially when it comes to showing and organizing their work, and clearly explaining their thinking. This will continue to be an area of focus throughout the year, as we attempt to integrate problem solving in to our daily routine and across subject areas.

DAYS TO REMEMBER...
assembly Monday
library book are due Tuesday
early dismissal Tuesday
