March is reading month! This year for reading month at Arbor, we will send home a chart for recording how much your child reads throughout the week. There will be certain prizes each week if your child meets his/her goal. Our school goal is to read 1,000 books! Remember to read at home in order accomplish our goal.
As March starts we will be continuing and beginning new units of study. We have finished up Economics in Social Studies and we are now moving into Government. In science we will be working simple machines and using the Scientific Method in our experiments. Math will cover fractions, decimals, and working with data.
We have been working on classroom character. We have been discussing bullying and its effects on others as well as ourselves. Mrs. Martin has been working with us on these issues. Our class goal is to be “A No Bully Zone.”
Many of our students are members of the Rocket Club. This year’s format will be run a little differently. Our students will be working with students from all of our Academies at the Augusta Commons, in Augusta. The first meeting will happen the week of March 19-23, with the cumulative project launch in April.
