Wow, what a year! The children have
grown academically, physically, and
socially. We are proud of their hard
work and accomplishments. We know you
will continue to practice their math,
reading, and writing skills. While going
about your daily activities have your
child apply his/her math skills at the
grocery store, restaurant, road trips,
etc. Encourage your child to read books,
but also summer activity brochures, game
directions, or magazines. Of course, a
journal of exciting summer adventures is
a great way to practice writing! Working
with your child over the summer makes
the transition to 4th grade easier.
We hope everyone has a great summer!

Wow! This year flew by, and
summer is right around the corner. Summer is a
time where it is easy to forget about school and
what your child learned throughout this school
year. Try to combat losing these skills by
having your child continue to read throughout
the summer. Encourage your child to find books
that interest him or her, and try to make summer
reading fun. Also, try to review math addition
and multiplication facts over the summer. This
will really help for next year.
Please feel free to contact
me if you have any questions or concerns about
your child. Have a safe and happy summer!
Happy almost summer! June is finally upon us.
This year has really flown by, and Iím so proud
of how far all the students have come this
year! We just wrapped up the 3rd grade State
Fair, and the 4th grade states book. We are
going to finish out the year conducting research
on animals, and students have each picked an
animal to learn more about. All students will
make a diorama of their animal in its habitat.
The students are really excited to complete
Have an amazing and relaxing summer! Thanks for
all your support this year!
It was an awesome year! Please continue
to read, write, and practice math facts
throughout the summer. Thank you for
making this year a success! Enjoy your
school year is coming to an end, and the
students are excited for summer break. The
students have really grown since the beginning
of the year. I encourage you to set aside some
time this summer to practice reading and math
skills with your child. Have a wonderful summer!
The students will explore two-dimensional shapes
and practice classifying them by color, shape,
and size. Students will also make and read
graphs. Students will collect data and use that
information to create their own graph.
1st Grade Math:
Students will begin to explore fractional parts.
We will learn how to show equal/unequal parts of
a two-dimensional object. Students will use
hands-on materials to represent parts of an
object as halves, fourths, or a whole. Please
continue to practice addition and subtraction
facts at home.
2nd Grade Math:
Students will begin learning about measuring
using metric units. Students will explore
measurement through hands-on activities. They
will estimate and measure objects in
centimeters. Students will also practice solving
problems involving adding and subtracting
