Weekly Wrap Up

Since we have two short weeks, this newsletter will be for the weeks of March 14th and March 21st.

As you begin to take out spring clothes for your child to see what still fits, or are buying new things, please keep the dress code in mind. Shorts and skirts/dresses should not be any shorter than the tips of fingers with arms hanging at side. Spaghetti straps or strapless tops should not be worn, and sandals should have heel straps. More info. on the dress code can be found in family handbook, located in the back of the school calendar.

Today we began our new math unit on geometry. Since there are a number of terms that you might not have seen since your days in school (Who remembers scalene triangles or obtuse angles?) the vocab cards for the unit are attached. Students also have a copy in their math notebook in class. We will be using our new knowledge to design towns applying various terms (ex: two streets must be parallel). There won’t be any math papers for homework, but students need to work on memorizing the meanings of the topic vocabulary words.

If you haven’t yet done the parent communication survey, please take a minute to fill it out. It’s linked off the front of our class website. Thanks!

Here's what we're learning about for the next two weeks:

  • Reader’s Workshop: Book clubs 
  • Writer’s Workshop: Persuasive Writing 
  • Math: Geometry Town
  • Social Studies: Connecticut

Please remember that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. I also check email frequently. Together we are partners in your child’s education!
