Hooray! We have come to the end of another GREAT week.    

Students did an AWESOME job following directions and staying focused during instructional time.       

Next week will be a very busy week for us as students take state assessments.    Wednesday, October 25th -  Friday, October 27th,  students will take CogAt and  Iowa Testing.  The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) is a group-administered  assessment intended to estimate students' learned reasoning and problem solving abilities through a battery of verbal, quantitative, and nonverbal test items.  The Iowa test is 
designed to assess student achievement and progress from kindergarten through grade 8.    You should check your child's blue communication folder for more information pertaining to these assessments.   Please ensure that your child is present and on time each day.   

Students will not have a reading story of the week.    Homework assignments will consist of reviewing  previously taught skills.   tudents will receive a reading,  word study and math activity sheet each night.   

Have a Fantastic Weekend!

Greetings Families!

It has been another great week of teaching and learning.    

In math,  we began a new unit  on place value.  In reading, students  identified  cause and  effect relationships in literary text.    Social studies included students identifying  land forms and bodies of water on a map.  Lastly,  science included  students  observing and identifying how magnets are used in everyday life. Kudos to students for  doing their personal best  throughout the week on these skills.  Please ask  your child  about their learning experiences.  

On Thursday,  students had the opportunity to meet Deputy Lawrence from Live PD.   They received safety tips and learned about  life as a police officer.   Students had an awesome time!   You may view our photos on class tag.  

On Friday, students  participated  in a bus safety drill.  They listened attentively and followed instructions as directed.
