We have wrapped up our unit on shapes and are moving on to keeping track of what we have counted and adding. We also learned about neighborhoods and created maps of neighborhoods in groups. Chrysanthemum was the story we read to learn about characters. You can ask what the characters say, do and feel to learn more about them. Ask your child to tell you about Chrysanthemum. In our reading groups we read nonfiction books which I sent home in their homework folders to read. We also learned about tools that scientists use. The kids used magnets, rulers, a scale, hand lenses, and a microscope to learn more about the things around them.
INDEPENDENT STUDY: Please turn in all paper work on Wednesday.
HOMEWORK: The following assignments are to be done Monday-Friday
Thanks for reading and staying informed!
I'm thrilled to be teaching my sixth year at HRCCS! I went to Chico State where I received a BA in Liberal Studies, a Minor in Latin American Studies and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I taught 3rd/4th for eight years at a multi-age, project-based, performing and visual arts school in my hometown of Stockton. My husband and I moved to Auburn in 2007 to be close to the trails and raise our children, Robby (9) and Amaya (4). I enjoy painting, cooking, working in the yard, and eating my way through San Francisco.
