Our first scheduled field trip will be on September 17th! Remember to send in your permission slips!
Thank you to everyone for such wonderful donations on the first week back! :)
This week in reading students will be practicing strategies for choosing a "just right" book. They will learn the 5 finger rule. They will also learn how to talk about a text. Be sure to ask them to ask a question about a book that they read! Reading groups will begin after all student assessments are completed.
Students are also getting into and learning new routines this week. Encourage your child to do their best, sit quietly when someone else speaks, raise their hand, and follow directions at all times.
Math Students are beginning to learn about math practices this week. These include things like using words and numbers to talk about a problem, using data to answer questions, and perservering through tough challenges.
In a few weeks, students will be getting math flash cards. Please have your child practice these every night as they begin to come home.
We will be beginning with our Weather late in September!
We are beginning our year with the unit "My Family and School." Students took a tour of CMES the other day, and are learning the roles of various adults in the building. They are also discussing important U.S. symbols that are common sights (our nations flag, the Liberty Bell, the Statue of Liberty...)
