What we are learning in March?
Social Studies: We are starting to learn about Lewis and Clark. We are discussing the Louisiana Purchase and Sacagawea.

What We Are Learning in February

In the month of February we will be very busy learning. 

We will be learning about adding and subtracting double and single digit numbers. We will be doing this by using base ten blocks and pennies and dimes. A way you can help at home is by working with your student adding cents. (pennies and dimes) This will help strengthen their math and money skills.

In reading we will be learning central message (what a story is trying to teach us), as well as comparing and contrasting books and characters. How you can help at home is during your daily reading just talking with your student about each character and what they liked or did not like about the story.

In Science and Social Studies we will be learning about light, shadows, good and services, as well as Lewis and Clark. As for writing we will continue learning about opinion writing. 

February Break is the week of the 19th. Please keep up all the hard work you do at home.
Mrs. Mitcham
