~ Our field trip to the Temple is this Wednesday. We will be leaving school around 9:15 and returning before lunch. This is a fascinating trip and I know the students will learn a lot.
~ Next Thursday, 10/31, is Fall Festival. Is is a noon dismissal. Students are invited to wear their Halloween costumes to school that day as long as the costume is school appropriate and won't scare the kindergarteners. If you are unsure if your child's costume is appropriate for school, have him or her bring in a picture wearing it and we can ask Mrs. Houghton for her thoughts. Tennis shoes are require regardless of your child's costume.
We will be starting Unit 4 this week. Unit 4 focuses entirely on division. PLEASE make sure that your child continues to work with their multiplication facts (flashcards!) often. If they struggle with basic multiplication facts, division is going to be INCREDIBLY difficult for them. It would be helpful if they continue to practice these facts daily. This week, we will review the partial quotients algorithm, and then we will begin our transition to the traditional method.
