Thank you to those of you who were able to stop by during open house, it was a pleasure meeting everyone! The first three weeks of school flew by so quickly! We are doing really well with rules and procedures in the classroom! We are also working hard on our academics! We are currently working on narrative writing and focusing on inferences and text evidence in reading. For the first year, we are using Eureka math for our curriculum. If you have any questions in regards to that, please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail me.
I’ve uploaded spelling list 3 for this coming week under the Spelling tab.
