February's Word of the Month: Kindness 

This month we are participating in the kindness challenge with many fun activities, a door decorating contest, and spirit days every Friday. 

     In Math, the children are beginning to learn about division, while still refining their multiplication facts and skills. Although this can be difficult and challenging at times students are persevering through any challenges they face, and they are growing their understanding. We are also looking for patterns and strategies to help us learn our facts. Students are expected to practice their math facts for at least 10 min each night in order to build fluency.  The more they practice, the better they will be at knowing them.  

In ELA we continue to work hard through writing narratives, poems and reading responses. We are also learning about verbs, subject verb agreement, and continue to practice our weekly spelling words. We are continuing to read new books in our groups. Continue to have your child read regularly and log their pages read on their Reading Olympics Log sheet as this is not an optional homework assignment. Parents, be sure to tally the number of pages each week and sign off on their hard work.

 
In Science we are beginning to talk about forces and motion. Students got excited about the topic after they built roller coasters with Jeremy Griffus. We are continuing to build on this knowledge in class and will be completing multiple fun experiments to help our learning. We are also beginning to practice and review for the NH state testing. 

As always, please check your child's assignment notebook daily and make sure they've completed their homework.  Homework should be returned the following day. It's a great example of how to be responsible.
