         March rainbow            

Welcome March –

Yeah for daylight savings, I love waking up and it is light out and now it is starting to stay lighter longer at night!!! This means spring is on its way!! Our March word of the month is RESPONSIBILITY.


do the right thing

In reading we will focus on reading with accuracy and fluency this month. We will read some fiction and non-fiction books from our intervention program Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI). These books are colorful and interesting, the students really seem to enjoy them.

During the school year the students are benchmarked and given a reading level within the Fountas & Pinnell intervention reading program. If you are interested in learning what your child’s reading level is feel free to reach out to me. This reading level will help your child pick “just right books” at the library. I can also send books home to read at their reading level as well, just let me know!

In math, second graders are working 3-digit subtraction with and without regrouping. Lots of practice helps in this area! Fourth graders continue to work on long division and we have started a new topic involving fractions. The first few steps involve understanding factors, multiples, prime and composite numbers.

In 7 habits we are working on habit 5 – Seek First to Understand, Then Be Understood – find ways to communicate more effectively. With this habit we will discuss how to be a better listener. Most people listen with intent to reply, not to understand.

This month we have a few dates to keep in mind:

  • March 6th – PTO meeting
  • March 11 – 13 PTO Book Fair
  • March 15 – We LOVE our Custodians Day
  • March 27 – Report Cards
  • March 28 – BINGO Family Fun Night 5:30 – 7:30
  • March 29 – Teacher Workshop Day – NO School for students

As always thank you for all you do each day for your children! If I can be a help at any time, please let me know of any concerns/questions at any time during the school year!
