Scheduled conference times are being sent home in blue folders today. There is also a link to the schedule on the snack page of our website. Please mark your calendars and let me know if you are unable to make your assigned time. These conferences will be an opportunity to discuss progress and ideas for keeping skills sharp over the summer. Conferences are scheduled for April 18th and 21st.
Students have an opportunity to practice reading skills daily on classroom iPads using an iRead app. Each student has an individual login and progresses at their own rate based upon successful completion of levels. Teachers are able to track progress of each individual student. During the month of April each class will be competing in the Race to Beastie Hall by keeping track of topics completed. Information will be shared at conferences regarding use of iRead on devices at home.
There is NO SCHOOL for KINDERGARTEN ONLY on April 28th & 29th due to kindergarten registration.
*Please check the snack calendar for your child's scheduled snack day. We have 19 students in our class. With a late lunch this year the children depend on having a mid morning snack. If you have missed snack day and could send a back up we would appreciate a few extra snacks for our snack drawer.
We have been graphing the recess temperature daily and reading non-fiction books related to weather. We are learning that weather changes from day to day and affects people, animals, and plants. We are anxiously awaiting to see sprouts from the seeds we planted on April 1st.
