Hello 110 Families,


We had a very productive week. We started exploring solids and liquids. The last couple of days we have been observing the properties of liquids, so you can ask your child to do the same at home.  


A few students have not been bringing appropriate shoes for gym class.  There are a few pairs of shoes for them to share in the gym, but changing into them cuts into their gym time.


Please make sure that your child has warm clothes to wear outside.  They should have hats, mittens, scarves and warm jackets.  Snow pants add extra warmth and are good for when we get some more snow.  Boots are recommended as well. Let me know if you are having a hard time getting these items for your child. Also, extra clothes are great to have in case they get wet outside.


Conferences: Conferences are Thursday the 16th from 3:30-7:30 and Friday the 17th from 7:30 – 3:30.  If you have a time you would like to meet just email us or you can sign up outside our classroom door.



Have a great weekend,

Rachel Herder and Alex Schluender

Reading: We are identifying and using text features. This includes making predictions using the contents page, reading dialogue and punctuation, and noticing changes in the print.


Math: We are working on place value and thinking about strategies we use when putting together and taking apart numbers to solve problems. We are using our number line to develop strategies for jumping forward and backward from a number.
