A huge thank you to the room parents for organizing and working the bake sale. A second thank you to all the families that donated and helped!! Your support is what makes this school so wonderful.
This Friday is the Annual Spring Concert. The first graders will be singing. They are asked to wear their Sunday best, arrive at the school and meet in the classroom at 6pm. The concert will be in the gym and begin at 6:30 pm.
This week, K-2 will be taking the ITBS, Iowa Test of Basic Skills. They students took this test last year in Kindergarten. There is no studying involved. All I ask is that the students are well rested and have a nice breakfast prior to school. I will remind the students to do their personal best and “show what they know”. There will be no new spelling words this week due to the testing.
In Math this week, we will be introduced to fractions. We will explore half and quarters. We will use vocabulary such as equal parts, denominator and numerator. The student will identify shapes with equal parts as fractions.
The class is working on map skills during our Social Studies lessons. We can identify the 7 continents and are now moving onto identifying parts of the USA. Reading a map and using the directions North, South, East and West are on the agenda this week.
Just a reminder to keep working on the reading incentive and accordion book report. Also the Tech Trek sheet is due on May 10th. Field day will be Monday, May 15th.
Progress reports will be going home to any student who is having trouble. If your child does not receive a progress report it is because there aren’t any issues. If you have any concerns please feel free to contact me and we can set up a time to discuss your concerns.
