I hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break!
Here is what's coming up:
Field Trip Time!
Our field trip to the Pioneer Living History Museum is on Thursday, March 29! We will be leaving at 8:15 am and returning around 2:00. Be on the lookout for a permission slip coming home in your child's homework folder. If you are interested in being a chaperone this fun field trip, please email me by by Friday, March 23rd. Please be sure your child brings the following:
Writing and Grammar: We will jump back into paragraph writing when we return from Spring Break!
Spalding Words This Week (20 words only due to No School on 3/19):
Tuesday: enjoy, awful, awesome, awe, usual, usually, complaint, complained, complain, auto
Wednesday: vacation, beautiful, beauty, flight, travel, rapid, repair, troubling, trouble, entrance
Math: Telling time will continue! See if your child can tell time on a digital clock at home. We've been practicing time after the hour and time before the hour.
Science: We will start a new unit about MAGNETS! See if your child can notice the many ways magnets are used at home.
History: Upon our return from Spring Break, we will learn about why and how pioneers traveled west. Your child will discuss the Oregon Trail, California gold rush, and the Transcontinental Railroad. Ask your child how the Pony Express worked. Our Pioneers are gearing up for their field trip to the Pioneer Living History Museum on March 29!
