Mrs. Blackner’s Newsletter

Math: In math we are starting to learn about Arrays. Students are starting into multiplication. This week we will be focusing on zero, ones and fives. We will start passing off to earn a Banana Split sundae. Our party will be set for the end of February.

Reading: Our class is currently reading George’s Marvelous Medicine as a class. This week’s story in our Harcourt series is called the “Rosie a Visiting Dog Story”.

Grammar: We have been working on dictionary skills to look up words with our new dictionaries from the Rotary Club. “Special thanks to the Rotary Club for giving students this gift.”

Computers:  Working on keyboarding, math facts, Reading Discovery.

Writing: Students are creating a Halloween Story that we will read to each other on October 30th. It will be lots of fun students may bring a flashlight for this activity.
