April 2020

Welcome April –

Spring is in the air!!! Days are lighter longer and the sun is out!  It is starting to feel warmer outside and the snow is gone! Our April word of the month is PERSEVERANCE. We will discuss “not giving up”. This seems very fitting with everything that is going on right now. We got this 😊



In reading we will be focusing on sequencing the events in a story and answering the “W” questions: who, what, where, when, and why. We will also be incorporating some stories about perseverance as well.

In math, second graders are working on geometry and money! They will be learning about solid shapes, their names and finding objects that are those 3d shapes. They will also be identifying coins and stating the amount each coin is worth. We will also be learning to count coins! Time to start filling up those piggy banks.

Fourth graders are learning about fractions and mixed numbers. We will be adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators, changing a mixed number to an improper fraction, changing an improper fraction to a mixed number.

In 7 habits we are working on habit 6 Synergize – demonstrate innovative problem-solving skills by seeking out differences and new and better alternatives. With this habit we will discuss how “two heads are better than one”, we will understand teamwork, and see things in a new way.

Due to remote learning there will be no activities at school but as of right now April vacation is still planned:

  • April 22 – 26 – April Break – NO SCHOOL


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!
