Spotlight Students!

This week, Mr. D would like to recognize Cory MIlls for his perseverance and continuous hard work in math.  Miss McCabe would like to recognize Jacob Gore for his enthusiasm and excitement in reading.

Science

We have finished our science unit and will be doing a simulation in social studies starting next week.  We will be simulating Benedict Arnold’s March through Maine.

Writing

This is the very last week of informational writing.  We went back to continue editing and revising.  Next week we will be starting our unit on poetry in honor of poetry month in April.  

Homework (Both Classes)

Read for 15 minutes and then complete a 2-3 sentence log of what was read.  On Fridays, we will be sending home math worksheets for students who may need a little extra work on certain concepts.  Please have your kids do these skill building worksheets and bring them back with their Friday folders.
