FirstWelcome back from Spring break! We have had a great few days back at school. I hope these kiddos keep up the hard. Here are a few things I would like to update you all on:
1. We have two field trips coming up! One I planned, and the other Mrs. Waters added us to!
LEGO LAND: LUNCH IS PROVIDED. We will be having pizza and water at Legoland. NATURE MUSEUM: LUNCH IS NEEDED. Students will need a packed lunch for this trip.
2. On April 24th, we will be conducting an Intruder Drill at school. This will be in Mrs. Formica's newsletter, but I wanted to add it here as well. It is just practice, so in the next few weeks and on the 24th, students may come home saying we practiced hiding in the classroom. Unfortunately, this is something that has become critical in our education practices.
3. Math this chapter is a focus on measurement. The book jumps all over the place and is confusing to myself as well as the kids. Because of this, you will see different homework coming home that will ask students to actively measure things in the house. Not all homework will be coming from the math book!
We are using both standard and non-standard units of measure. For homework, I will not ask them to use any standard measurement they cannot use a ruler for. However, they may have to measure large things with nonstandard units.
4. First Communion is quickly approaching! Please make sure you are marking your calendars with the practice and actual communion dates. If you have any questions, please contact me or Mrs. Pat Kahl.
