Wow! This school year has flown by!  I can’t believe how far everyone has come in their reading and math skills this year.  I have loved watching everyone grow as a reader, writer, and person this year.

We will finish religion this year by talking about the Ten Commandments and sin.  We will learn that there are two groups of commandments, the ones that tell us about God and how to show God love and the ones that tell us how to treat others.

In reading, we will continue to learn different vowel sounds and their combinations to help us to become more fluent readers.  We will learn about the vowel teams oi, oy, ai, and ay.  Make sure to keep reading this summer! I look forward to hearing all about the amazing books you have read.

In math, we are learning about 2D and 3D shapes.  We will learn about the shapes and how many sides, vertices, and faces each shape has.  Finally, we will begin to learn that fractions mean equal parts.  Make sure to keep working on addition and subtraction facts this summer to continue to gain fluency.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me at or call the school at (413) 592-5135.

I hope everyone has a great summer,

Ms. Patterson
