Our classroom continues to have a lack of focus so far this week. Please discuss that we still have a month of school and expectations are the same.
Talking needs to stop and listening and following directions needs to improve!
Social Studies - We will begin creating the state floats tomorrow (Tuesday). Continue to research at home. Printing information for your float is also a good idea.
Please send in supplies as needed. In the downloads section of the classroom webpage is a state float example file so you can see what floats can look like.
