Weekly Overview March 28, 2016

Ray Festival is just around the corner on April 7.  I would like our classroom to run two booths, but I will need parents to volunteer to run them.  Maybe two, one or two hour shifts.  If you can work during the festival, please let me know.  Thanks

Our field trip is this Thursday.  I have many parents, coming, which is great!  Thanks.

Your child should bring a lunch on Thursday.

We will not start a new Language arts lesson this week.  We will review and take a short end of unit grammar and reading test each day.  We are reviewing all our vocabulary this week.

In math we are adding three and more numbers at a time.  We are adding two digit numbers.  Practice these skills at home if your child needs the extra practice.  Thanks.

Have a good week.
