Towards the end of the month, the students will have another opportunity to earn one of the physical fitness test awards, as we retake the physical fitness test in the upper grades (Grades 3-8).

SPANISH: Students in fifth grade will work on “La ropa”. Fourth graders will learn about “La comida”. Students in third grade will start the journey to “Números”.  Second graders will listen to and write numbers, as well as practice math problems, doing addition & subtraction in Spanish of course! The students in first grade will practice the rooms and items in “La casa”.  “Felíz día de las Madres”.  

TECHNOLOGY:  This month, students in first through eighth grades will be continuing on with their coding units and working in their Google Classroom accounts (Google Classroom is only for students in third through eighth grades).  Students in Kindergarten will use the desktop computers to work on their phonics skills, math skills and continue with some basics of coding.  I am very impressed with how all students are working in technology lately!  Keep up the good work!
