We had another great week writing about Easter and creating art. I hope you can join us for Morning with Mom and the Art Fair, this Friday, March 13!

  • Reading - Our story will be “From Seed to Plant.” Our target skill will be Cause and Effect.

  • Math - We will continue working on addition, subtraction, multiplication (0,1,2,5,10), division, fractions, Roman numerals, and counting money. We will also begin to compare parts of a circle graph/ pie chart. Please continue to work on facts at home.

Scholastic Book Fair!

Next week is our Scholastic Book Fair!  It will be held in the library March 9-13.

Below is a link to our Scholastic Book Fair Website. There is even online shopping for the fair and that is already active for you!  There is a new option for payment called "ewallet" in addition to traditional payment methods.  This involves pre-loading money (like a gift card allowance)-for your student. They don't have to bring in their barcode because it will pop up on our cash registers for them. If the money on their ewallet is not used, it will automatically go back into your account at end of the week. if you have more than one child at Shiloh, you will need to do an ewallet account for each of your children separately should you choose this payment option.
