Weekly Update-February 23, 2016

Hi! Parents, 

I hope you all had a nice weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather! It has been nice to be able to get outside more during our day and get some fresh air and movement in.

Last week we were excited to work on our Hawk Air "Prototypes" with Teri Motheral! A big shout out to her for helping us bring to life the students' hard work on their design thinking process for Hawk Air Pluto. We are very excited to show you what we've been working on and learning about Pluto!


This week...

  • This week in literacy our theme is "Your Money" with a focus on making text to self connections and learning about author's purpose
  • Spelling this week we are working on silent letter patterns. 
  • In math, we are beginning Unit 7: Graphing and tables.  
  • In writing, we are going to be working on friendly letters to our pen pals and begin our "How to" writings.
