Math: This week we will begin our geometry unit. We will start by focusing the two- dimensional shapes (triangles, trapezoids, squares, hexagons, rhombuses and rectangles). The work with shapes includes comparing, defining attributes and developing problem-solving strategies.
Second Steps: Your child is learning how to manage worried feelings using different ways to calm down, such as belly breathing, using self-talk, and counting. Your child is also learning that it helps to talk to a trusted grown-up. Please complete the green Home Link with your child and return in by Friday.
Scholastic book orders: Orders are due on Friday. You may send orders to school or order online. Our class code is GML6Q.
