Dear Bridge Builder Parents,
We had a very full 4 day week last week, ending with our first enrichment cluster meeting:) In science we have learned about the 3 basic types of clouds and have spent some time outside identifying them in our sky. We have learned about the tools used to measure weather and made simple wind socks. (Of course, we tried to test them on a day when the wind was very calm...) We have created, sorted, and identified polygons in math. In social studies we are researching countries or states (and reviewing non fiction text features). We also wrote a short personal narrative about somthing we did over the winter break.
On Tuesday and Wednesday the students will take a reading and math test on the computers, so that we can check their progress. (We do this testing 3 times each year.) Our testing will begin at 8:00 AM in the cafeteria.
Please remember to check my newsletter page for what's happening in our classroom this week. Any homework sheets will be linked on the homework page.
