Dear Parents, Families, and Friends,

     We are in the fourth nine weeks of school!  We must work hard to meet our learning goals.   Please make sure that students are working on sight words, and reading each night.  We are moving ahead with AR/Accelerated Reading.  Please read the Media Center books that come home with your student.  Ask them questions about the book so that they will be prepared to take quizzes and pass them successfully.  In Math, we are investigating addition and subtraction.  We are learning that we can model addition and subtraction in many ways.  Counting to 100 by 1's, 5's, and 10's.  Continue working on ways to break numbers into different pairs.  For example, the number six can be broken into: 2and4, 1 and 5, 3 and 3, and so on.  

Please practice daily to help your student learn his/her sight words.  There is no magic formula for learning them.  You may try flash cards, making two sets and playing concentration, or Go Fish.  If you have any questions, please call the school to make an appointment.   


Thank you for your support and commitment to your child's success.
