If you have not returned your parent teacher conference slip please do so. We would really like to meet with every parent during fall conferences. If you need a time outside of the designated conference dates we will be happy to schedule some tome to meet with you. Just let us know!

This Week in Math:

We will be working on metric measurements and conversions. Practice these at home with your child if you get a chance. Maybe they could measure their room (or the living room, or the back yard…) in centimeters and then convert it to meters,  measure out some water in liters and then convert it to milliliters, or convert their weight from grams to kilograms. All of these activities will  help to reinforce the concepts we are covering at school.  We will also take a multiplication timed test this week so keep practicing those facts! We have been so impressed with the great progress the kids are making so far!

In Language Arts:

We will send home Unit 5 Spelling Words tomorrow. The Spelling test will be Friday as usual.  We will continue working in our Literature Circle groups and most groups will finish their books up this week. We will keep working on the concepts of Cause and Effect, Character Traits, Inferencing and theme. The students will be working on some research to do their first informational report as well.

Leader In Me:

We have been talking about being Proactive, and are now moving onto Habit 2, Begin with the End in Mind. This habit helps the kids realize the importance of setting goals. Habit 2 says:

I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision. I look for ways to be a good citizen.

Talk with your child about the habits at home, hopefully he or she will start living the habits soon! We already hear the kids talking to one another about being Proactive!


This is going to be a busy week…We are looking forward to it and hope you are too! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
