Module 4 Parent Tip Sheet

Students should know how to tie their own shoes.  Some suggestions to help with the process include:

  • Be patient
  • Give lots of praise
  • Try to practice each day
  • Be sure the laces are long enough for small hands to grasp

Education is learning what
you didn't even know you
didn't know.
--Daniel J. Boorstin


Reptiles are our last animal group to study.  We will then review all the animal classifications in anticipation of our field trip to Brookfield Zoo.

Students will use map skills as they determine why people may choose to live in
different parts of the world. Identifying continents, oceans, and cardinal directions
will be our target of instruction as well as understanding how individual actions
can make a difference in the environment.

Your child's birthday is a special event in your child's life.  While birthday treats are not expected, District 205 has instituted a non-edible treat policy for birthdays.  If you wish to send  a treat, some suggestions might include: a pencil, stickers, or erasers.g



District 205 supports "snack breaks" as an important part of a student's day.  A nutritional snack provides essential nutrients for the brain and also additional energy to stay attentive in class.  I am asking for your support by providing your child with a daily nutritious snack. Snacks should be small, non messy, and ready to eat.  Items such as fresh fruit, pretzels, crackers, and vegetables are appropriate choices. Please do not send cookies, candy, "fruit snacks", or chips as they will not be permitted.  We are a nut free classroom!
