Good Morning Families!
This week, your child’s classroom will be taking their Unit 4 Reading and Math Tests. The reading test is spaced out over three days, and the math test will take two days. Because of all this testing, there will be no spelling words this week. I’ve also decided give the kids a break and not assign a reading homework this week. I think their little brains will be on overload enough, and they can use the week off! 🙂
You might have heard about our field trip last week to Morrill Hall. We had a great time, and learned a lot about dinosaurs, fossils and what it’s like to be a paleontologist. Thanks to all those parents that took time out of their day to join us on the trip!
I have taken A LOT of pictures from our Embryology Unit and the Morrill Hall trip. I plan on sharing all of those with you via a link to Dropbox. I just need to get them organized, and I hope to do that this week.
This week we will begin a new Health unit. A guest teacher from the UNL Extension office will visit this week and next, and teach two lessons about exercise and proper diet. We will also practice a number of lessons on our own to help promote healthy lifestyle choices.
Just a reminder, conferences are coming up next week. Your child will be bringing home a conference time reminder sheet this week (probably Tuesday). I’ll also attach it to the weekly email, and it’s posted on the class web page, as well. I have so many great things to share about your kids and I’m looking forward to next week!
Thanks for reading, stay warm, and have a great week!
