End of 9 weeks

We have had a productive first quarter. The students are doing well with classroom routines. We are finishing up our first big writing piece in 4th and 5th grade. Their personal narratives will be shared with you at conference time. In reading we have read fiction books or chapter books and they are responding  in their journals. For math, different grade levels have worked on computation practice, place value and rounding. I look forward to seeing you conference week.
