Kindergarten had a fantastic week! We are continuing to work on writing complete sentences with first letters capitalized, spacing and correct ending punctuation. We are also reading sentences and words with blends and digraphs. In math we are practicing counting to 100 by fives, subtracting fluently and learning the names of coins and their value. A note was sent home about our upcoming field trip on April 29 to the fire station and park. If you have any questions, please let your child’s teacher know.
First graders are enjoying their new read-aloud domain involving fairy tales. Their skills in reading have involved root words, suffixes -ing and -ed and plural nouns. Also, our first graders have been working with place value in math. Writing has been about working with a graphic organizer and writing an opinion piece on “My Favorite Candy.”
Second grade is happy to report that we have finished our i-Ready Diagnostic Tests for the year! We have worked so hard this year to reach our growth goal. We are finishing up our second grade materials and will continue to prepare for TCAP. We are so excited to show how much we have improved and learned in second grade.
In third grade we are starting our TCAP assessments. Our students are prepared and ready to rock these tests! This week, we will take ELA and Science. In math we are continuing to learn how to gather data and create graphs. Students will assess over this standard this week. Parents, please check your child’s folder every night. We will have important information going home as we end the school year.
