In math students are learning about numbers to thirty. They are learning about tens and ones and how to tell the difference between numbers like 12 and 21
Thursday, February 13, the students in Mrs. Hopkins’s, Mrs. Comstock’s, and Ms Antuono’s classes went to the Jensen-Alvarado Ranch. Thanks to a REEF grant they were able to visit the ranch and experience life in the 1800s. The students fed carrots to the donkeys, sheep and pigs, scrubbed rags on a washboard, hand-cranked ice cream, ground coffee beans, churned butter, and made tortillas. They also toured the house and saw what things looked like back in the “olden days.” One of the best parts of the trip was eating the ice cream. Students also got to eat their tortillas slathered with the butter they churned. It was a wonderful look back in time. A big thanks goes to all of the students and parents who helped us collect bottles and cans to earn money to pay for the busses. Also, thank you to the 6th graders and other classes who sponsored several 4th graders, and to Fremont PTA for donating $100.00 to help pay for transportation. 4th Grade Congratulations to the following 4th graders for their Fremont Reflections projects: Visual Arts: 1st= Alexis Eredia; 2nd = Ayreen Poma; 3rd = (tie) Michael Cathcart & Lesly Salazar; Honorable Mention = Haiiley Casillas & Daniela Aguilers Literature: 1st = (tie) Bryan Rodas & Jereilly Jimenez; 2nd = Jonah Guiton; 3rd = Kimberly Garcia; Honorable Mention: Kristal Ibarra-Gutierrez & Vanessa Rojero
In the coming weeks, you will be asked to give your thoughts on this question: “What would most help all students in RUSD to be successful?” We need to hear from you as our district begins putting together its Local Control and Accountability Plan. Districts throughout California are crafting these plans, which signal a significant change from the state-controlled “one size fits all” educational plans of the past to a more locally-minded plan that specifically addresses the needs of our students here in Riverside. Make sure to have your voice heard! Come of one of the community meetings, included one right here at our school. You can find a full list of meeting dates and times at: www.successforstudents.org. You also can share your ideas at this website.

has a performance choir! Under the direction of Ms Debbie Knight-Marshal and Mrs. Nancy Hopkins, the first rehearsal was held on Friday, January 31. The choir is for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade Fremont students. Twenty 4th and 5th graders came to sing and dance in preparation for performing at the 6th grade promotion ceremony in June. Next school year, they hope to perform at The Festival of Lights during the holidays. Ms Knight-Marshall and Mrs. Hopkins were amazed at how quickly the students learned the first song and at the high-level of enthusiasm they had.
Our “Home School Connection” for this week is related to our students learning about characters in a story from how they act and what they say. A focus question: “What do the characters say that let’s me know whom he likes?” The skill for this week includes both character and setting. While you sit and read with your child this week, remember that you are building good comprehension skills by asking your child to do a “Retell” about the story just read. Enjoy the one-on-one time you are spending together! We are pleased to announce that in Phonics our spiral review is building fluency with focus on sound and spellings. Likewise, our weekly skill is blending words with long /a/ (ai, ay) sounds, as in play and rain. Additionally, we get to build fluency using our 2”x 3” chart in developing “Word automaticity. Also, in building fluency, we connect text by independently rereading, Too Much Rain Today, from our Decodable Readers. Just a fun tip! Parents, together with your student you both can learn by doing; using index card, make up words with the long /a/a sound by using the letters (ai, and ay). Then use these cards to play “Word Sort!” Have Fun!!!r District Math Benchmark, along with the Language Arts. So it is suggested that our students get a good rest and start off their day with a healthy breakfast to help support them. “Genius is eternal patience.” Michelangelo
*Second grade students are learning to summarize thus tell the story in their own words. When summarizing, students should retell only the main idea and important details. In class as stories are read, students are required to find evidence to explain its content. When answering questions about the text, students need to find evidence in the selection to support their answers which then helps them to focus only on the important details. *Second grade students will also be taking Benchmark Math Assessment #2. Much of the Math assessment will focus on adding and subtracting two-digit numbers with and without regrouping which is quite challenging. Please look over the math homework and support your child if needed. Continue to also focus on basic addition and subtraction facts. Please help by making sure that your child attends school each day!
