What’s Coming Up! We have had a terrific week of school; so much learning has already occurred! The solar eclipse is coming up on Monday. Mrs. Pietz has planned some activities to help students enjoy this rare occurrence. Students will be going outside periodically to monitor the path of the moon. We do have approved viewing glasses for all students (thanks Taylor family!) and, we will discuss the importance of keeping the glasses on at all times. Paperwork is also going home today from Mr. Kidwell; look for it in backpacks. Another quick note, the best way to contact Mrs. Pietz or me is through email. We do not always check Dojo throughout the day. If you need to get in touch with either of us over something important, please send an email.

What We Are Learning
Reading: Making Connections
We have been reading and discussing
a fantastic children’s book,
Wonder. Our focus skill this week
has been “making connections”.
Students have done well with this.
Writing: Writing Skills
Students have been practicing good
writing skills. We have practiced
writing correct, complete, and focused
paragraphs, using strong verbs and
adjectives and using transitions.
Math/Science: Number Sense
Students have worked with arrays,
decimals and place value to
increase number sense. In science,
students have been learning about
the solar eclipse.
Social Studies: Geography
This week we have been studying
geography. We have looked at
landforms, latitude and longitude,
and the 7 continents and oceans.
