Jump Rope for Heart

Today we participated in Jump Rope for Heart! It was an awesome experience and the children did great! Tashiana won our "Last Jumper Standing Competition" and Holy and I both jumped over 100 jumps in the "Long Rope Competition". Please ask your child about their experience with Jump Rope for Heart to find out more about this awesome event.

If you would like to donate to this worthy cause you can also check out this link: Jump Rope for Heart

Is there really a normal?

Wow! What a whirlwind last week was! We were hoping for a full week of school, but Mother Nature had her own idea! Due to the craziness of winter, we are continuing on our journey learning about Informational text and also about Fractions.

Here are some resources that can help your child with both:

IXL Math Fraction Review

Comparing Fractions with Like Denominators

Read, Write, Think Parent Resources
