Announcements


Please check the this announcement page often to see what we are working on in the classroom.

The children have been practicing and rehearsing for our big Multicultural performance on Friday, March 24, 2017.  Please arrive early to peruse our posters in the cafeteria and learn about out diverse Dever community.  Then to get a seat for the show that starts at 9:00 A.M.!! Thank you so much for all your support during this wonderful unit of study! We look forward to seeing you there!

So sorry I did not update the announcements and homework last week! This week we will not have spelling words again.  The children will do fun spelling activities with vocabulary words from our multicultural unit.  There will be no spelling test on Friday.

I'm working on uploading pictures of the children from our visit to the Hospital, the Smoke House visit and the Nature Company visit! I apologize that they are coming out sideways!! When I downloaded them they were in the right positions! I'm trying to figure out how to rotate them the correct way! Sorry for the stiff necks!


)ur new unit in math is Chapter 14, Time. In this chapter, children will be learn how to read and write time to the nearest 5 minutes using the skip-counting by 5's strategy. Also how to read and write time, using A.M. and P.M., and elapsed time.


I've learned about a great website called mathplayground.com which has many activities for practice and reinforcement.  


*PLEASE PRACTICE ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION FACTS AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE*


Our next writing unit we will learn how to write letters for an advice column.  These columns are part of every Superkids magazine issue.  Soon, we will also begin cursive writing.

We have also begun our multicultural unit on immigration and look forward to learning about the different countries that we are from! The children have been hearing stories about people who have emigrated from their country and immigrated to the U.S., Ellis and Angel Island, Statue of Liberty, and those "push and pull factors" that force many to leave and why they are drawn to the U.S.  

The next science unit will be "Treasures from Earth." The class will be learning about , saving our natural resources. We will discuss the importance of conservation, recycling, litter, pollution and natural resources.
