Incentive Recess

The incentive recess started today. We had a few bumps, but overall we believe this will help the students keep caught up on work and provide time to reflect on behavior if needed. 
 

Still Needed: Referee!

Do you have a passion for sportsmanship? Are you interested in helping our students learn about teamwork and how to form and follow rules of a game? We are seeking Recess Referees to guide students in fair play and following the golden rule to demonstrate good sportsmanship. If you are interested, please check in with the front office as a volunteer during lunch/recess times.
 
Literacy
We are back to a full week. We will have spelling, phonograms and DLI next week. We are also beginning our novel studies and will be focusing on narrative elements (plot, setting, characters). Depending on the class, DLI will focus on possessive versus plural nouns, singular possessive versus plural possessive, or identify complete sentences. 
 
History
We will continue to study various Earliest American tribes. A research packet and project information will be coming out soon.
 
Science
 In science, we are starting STEM next week.  We will have our genetics test March 9th.  Your students have study guides, so please be on the look-out for them.
