This week was a wonderful week full of learning. In math, we have continued working on counting money and counting back the correct change, a skill that seems to be almost lost in this day and age. We will continue this skill into next week along with time on an analog clock.
In reading, we read a story titled Prudy's Problem and How She Solved It. It was a fantasy about a girl that doesn't know how to throw anything away and eventually finds a way to organize her "collection" in a building titled "Prudy's Wonderful Museum of Indescribable Wonderment." A test was given on this on Thursday online. Test scores can be found in PowerSchool. A spelling test was also given.
Social studies has been spent learning about how pioneers lived while traveling west on the Oregon Trail. The students are currently finishing up a simulation in which critical problem-solving skills along with writing skills are involved. Check to see if your child has written a blog on their website over one of their mandatory diary entries! If they have, please respond to their blog by leaving a comment. Be sure to include what you liked about it along with a question so they can respond back to you!
We finished up the week with our field trip to Old Prairie Town at Ward-Meade Park in north Topeka. Although chilly outside, the tour guides were warm and welcoming on the inside of the buildings that we toured. Below is a slideshow of what we were able to see.
Be sure to check the school newsletter for information regarding the Halloween party and parade next Wednesday!
Thank you for all you do,
