Dear Parents,

We have started our work with electric circuits.  We explored simple circuits this week and have done a few experiments with batteries and light bulbs both small and household size.  The children are very excited and curious about this unit.  Ask them about it!  Thank you for facilitating the return of your child’s electricity project. If it is not already here in the classroom, it needs to be returned to school by Tuesday January 20th.

We are making great progress in our math Unit 2.2 on multiplication. We have explored the partial products method using open arrays. Please encourage your child to practice their multiplication tables with flash cards or on the computer using multiplication.com or freerice.com.  

During reading we are focused on RI history.  Students are working towards gaining information in research teams and creating their own non-fiction text together, with each member writing their own text on a subtopic.  This unit integrates technology, social studies, and writing! We are having so much fun!

January 19th–Martin Luther King Jr. Day-No School
