Reading

 

During reading, we have continued to learn about text structures. The students are becoming more independent in identifying a nonfiction text’s structure. Reading groups will continue this week with nonfiction reading passages. 

 

Writing

 

The students worked on an informational writing preassessment this past week. Next week the students will begin to learn more about informational writing and come up with a topic for an informative writing piece of their own. 

 

Math

 

The class had begun Unit 4 in math about addition and subtraction using a variety of strategies. This unit also covers the measurement of length, distance, liquid volume, time, mass, and weight. Students who have their addition and subtraction facts memorized will have more success during this unit. 

 

Nature Time, Science

 

In science, the students began learning about magnets before the break. Our lessons continued this week and the test about magnets will be next week. Students learned about magnet fields, how the earth is a giant magnet, and how to make a metal object a magnet.

Other 

 

Please send in winter clothes for your child to keep at school. A few students needed new clothes and only had shorts in their lockers. We have recess outside if the wind chill is above 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Please send snow pants, boots, a  hat, and gloves daily.

 

Remember to send your child ready to go outside in the morning and the afternoon.  It can be chilly in the morning if we do an outdoor lesson. This may mean sending a sweatshirt and a winter coat.

 

With the weather turning colder, we will eat indoors when it is below 40 degrees. Students will be spaced out in the classroom to eat. All students will put on a mask when not eating or drinking. Some students may finish lunch or snack before the time is up and be asked to wear their masks while other students finish eating.

 

Student Teacher

 

Ms. Harper will be student teaching in our classroom from January 10th to April 8th, 2022. She is currently working on a Master of Arts in Teaching Elementary Education at Western Governors University. She has worked at New Connections Academy, a therapeutic day school, as a teacher assistant in an elementary classroom for the last 3 years. For the last year and a half, Ms. Harper led the 3rd grade level pull-out group for reading and math. She also has the subbing experience, as she was the long-term substitute in an elementary classroom at New Connections Academy from 10/2021 to 12/2021. She is very excited about the opportunity to complete student teaching at Prairie Crossing Charter School. Ms. Harper looks forward to working with and learning from Ms. Hahn and helping your children learn and grow!
