This week I will be sending home a newsletter about what we will be learning.  I have two homework sheets for math, the list of spelling words, etc.  I will give these out on Monday and they will not be due back until Friday.  I know each of you are very busy with activities each night.  I am hoping this will help your child the week to complete the homework and return it on Friday.  Then you can do it on the nights you may have free.  Thank you for supporting your child in their education.

Danica learned…

I learned how much quarters are worth.  I learned what it looked like and what it’s attributes are on the quarter.

We are learning about how much each coin is worth and their attributes.  In their planner they have a quick question to answer about counting coins.

We also learned about what makes a good story.  Ask them the first two parts of a good story and what they mean!  We want to start adding these elements in our own stories that we are writing.
