Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Ziedonis

March has begun like a lion! The children celebrated Read Across America Week with daily activities highlighted by our guest reader, Byron Gurzo-Montgomery Fire Fighter! In addition, we read books to our Buddy Class, Mrs. Yanovitch’s Kindergarten class!

 In reading, we are moving onto studying characters and story elements. Children will follow a character and infer character’s feelings and motivations using text evidence to support their thinking. Next in writing, the children will be writing realistic fiction stories - narrative stories about realistic characters. The children will dream up a character like themselves, imagine problems that character might face and write edge of your seat, suspenseful stories that keep the reader interested!

 In math, we will continue with Geometry and Fractions (Ch 18,19 and 12 in our Math in Focus textbooks.) We will also review word problems using all the models we already know; number lines, number bonds, place value chart, bar models.

In science, the children are excited to continue our changes in Land Unit.  We are discovering the impact of water and wind on land.
