When children return from Spring Break there will no longer be name tags. Instead the children will be writing their names.  Some have transitioned to writing their first letter in uppercase followed by lowercase and some are not quite ready.  We will work on it.

April 25th Field trip to University of Michigan-Dearborn for a Pond Study.

Hello 2017!

The end of the school year is near.  Yes, it will fly by and we have so much to accomplish.

Have your child practice writing his/her name in upper and lower case letters.  Encourage writing and inventive spelling–sounding out of words.

No School January 16.

January 19.  Parent Meeting with Math Focus.  The classroom will be a NO CELLPHONE ZONE so that you can fully engage with your child

  During Daily 5 we can choose to “Read to Someone”.  At this time we have to be elbow to elbow and knee to knee with our partner.  Your child may know it as EEKK
