It is hard to believe that we are already beginning the last full week of September!
Here are some important dates that you should know:
-September 23rd Listen and Learn @ East Lansing Public Library with Dr. Thompson-Superintendant
-September 26th 9:05-9:45 AM-Glencairn Fun Run
-September 26th-September Book Orders are Due!
-October 21st-October 23rd-Parent-Teacher Conferences
This month your children have started focusing on reviewing concepts related to addition and subtraction in math. In reading we are working on a new phonics strategy weekly. The comprehension focus this month has been retelling a story in sequence and correctly identifying sequence words. In writing, your students are writing personal narratives, which are small moment true stories about their lives. In social studies, the students have learned about our U.S. Constitution and its importance to us. We have also started our unit on Michigan Geography. Lastly, in science the students have started observing different types of rocks and minerals and identifying similarities and differences between them.
