Dear Families,

We hope you had a wonderful, long weekend. Primary 2’s Veterans Day hearts are hanging in the hallway! They really did a fantastic job understanding and writing about what this special day stands for! We are so excited about the upcoming holidays. We have started scheduling parent/teacher conferences. The 8:30 am slot while the students are at gym is also available, if any parent would like an earlier appointment.

In Science, this week we are continuing with our study of the five senses. Last week the students completed a lab where they had to use their sense of sight to determine which item was missing after studying a tray of items given. They had a lot of fun while learning to focus on only what they saw right in front of them. In Social Studies, we will be continuing our study on families. We will also be learning the history of Thanksgiving. One of our essentials questions has the class thinking about how a family is like a community.

In Math, the first grade is focusing on making 10 first and then adding on the rest of the problem. For example, 9+6= 10+5. Second grade is continuing with place value. They are counting within ranges of numbers using ones, tens, and hundreds.

Please remember to practice spelling words with your child daily. Students can complete practice tests at home, use index cards, and/or play memory games with the word. Anything extra you can do with your child at home only helps them.

Have a great week!
