Dear Parents,

It has been a busy first few weeks of SPRING! I hope you all enjoy a relaxing Spring Break. Here’s what we’ve been working on in EIP for the past few weeks!

**First Grade Math**

We ended the 3rd Quarter by reviewing addition and subtraction word problems, and I saw your children making so much progress with a challenging skill. We have started the fourth nine weeks by learning about 2D and 3D shapes and how to partition, or divide, shapes into equal parts.

**Second Grade Reading**

In second grade reading we have been working on reading AND spelling two-syllable words. We have learned about how to read ** ostrich words** (VCCCV pattern)

*,*

*(V/CV pattern), and*

**tiger words***(VC/V pattern). The students have been so excited to learn to read and spell so many new, challenging word types!*

**camel words****Second Grade Math**

In math, we finished the 3rd quarter by reviewing 3-digit addition and subtraction. We will continue to work on this standard during this last quarter of school as well. We started the last quarter, by reviewing place value through 999. This week, we have been learning about the attributes of 2D and 3D shapes.

**Fourth Grade Math**

In fourth grade, we’ve been reviewing computation and word problem skills from the beginning of the year. We’ve worked on place value, rounding, addition and subtraction using the standard algorithm, multiplication, and division. I know our students are going to ROCK the Milestones when we return in April!

Have a WONDERFUL Spring Break! See you all in April!
