Kindergarten had a fantastic week! Students worked on sentence reading and writing, reading words with blends and digraphs, letter teams, counting by fives to 100, subtracting fluently and naming coins and their values. We enjoyed a field trip to the Henderson Fire Department and Gene Record Memorial Park. Thank you to everyone who was able to come and enjoy this day with us.
We are happy to report that we have finished RTI testing! We have worked so hard this year to master second grade skills. We will be finishing up our reading curriculum and review in math for final report card grades. We are so excited about future events and programs. We hope to see you there!
In third grade we are FINISHED with testing! Our students have worked so hard and gave it their all. We are continuing to read “The Lemonade Wars.” We are using this novel to inspire reading over the summer and review standards taught earlier this year. In math we are working on two-step word problems. We are going on our “Mystery” Field Trip Thursday. I know our students will be excited and love to spend time with friends before going to Chester County Middle School. Parents, please be on the lookout for papers coming home as we cross the finish line.
