Reminder - Monday is pizza day, also remember your milk money. Sent home- progress reports went home today Sent home - a flyer on our Scholastic book fair that takes place next week. Today we finished up an assignment in math called "Spiney and Other Creatures". Students were asked to create a shape using pattern blocks, then continue it as a pattern. Using the first three parts of the pattern, they were then to predict the 7th part. In literacy, we did a shared reading of "In Flander's Field" and discussed the meaning of the poem. It is still a powerful piece of writing after almost 100 years. We also had our Friday Free Writes, where students could write about any topic they wished. What did your child write about? Finally, we had a spirit assembly to finish the day. Have a good weekend.
