Update: Week of April 22

Here is an update for our week:

EARTH DAY: We celebrated Earth Day today by reading an article and completing some response questions. We also read a story and finished a craft ->see photo below. We talked about ways we can help our EARTH become a better place to live.

Writing/Reading: We are working on reading, researching, and studying a person in history. We are gathering information and will work on writing about this person.

Math: We have started our Fraction unit and we are learning about unit fractions and representing fractions on a number line.
Continue practicing math facts on MobyMax.

Social Studies: We are learning about the Government of Michigan.

Field Trip: A note went home today about a field trip to Meijer Gardens. The cost is $2.00 per student. Please send the form and money to school (in an envelope labeled with your child’s name) by May 3. We are allowed 4 chaperones per class. If you are interested in attending, please note this on the form and 4 chaperones will be randomly chosen.

REMINDER: As the weather gets nice, please let me know if your child will be riding their bike home. It is helpful to know if there is a change in end of day transportation.
