Our boys and girls have been working hard settling into first grade. They are enjoying getting to know their classmates and their new teachers. The boys and girls are also reviewing letters of the alphabet and practicing writing complete sentences. In math they are reviewing writing their number words and writing their numbers to 120.
In second grade we have enjoyed our first week of school! We have made new friends and had a great time getting to know each other better. We look forward to upcoming events and all the knowledge we will gain in second grade. Thank you to everyone for all the classroom donations and supplies.
In third grade we are reading the novel “Third Grade Angels.” In math we are working on rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. We are also learning addition properties. In social studies we are learning about different oceans, continents, the prime meridian and the equator.
