As the weather gets warmer, water bottles are a necessity at school.  Please make sure your child has a water bottle at school.

In reading we practiced our visualization skills.  Students quickly realized that our background knowledge helps us visualize when we read.  The kids enjoyed making quick sketches of their visualizations.

We got our new interactive whiteboard installed over vacation!!!! I took a few pictures so you could ask your son/daughter about this new technology. We used it for a math lesson today 🙂  We were discussing “easy” fraction/percent conversions.  For example, they know that 1/2=50%  and today’s lesson introduced other fractions like tenths, fifths and fourths.
