Mrs. Kelsey Carter – Kindergarten
This week we reviewed our narrative writing so we can move on to the next unit! In math, we continued learning about numbers through 10! In ELA, we covered letters e and r. We learned about plants and animals and their parts in science. We also learned about the different rules we have at home and at school. Have a lovely weekend!
Mr. Robert Fahrmeier – 1st Grade
First Grade had 100% attendance several days this week and we are so excited. We have starting writing a story about fall and we have a cool art project we will start next week to go with it. In math we are learning about different ways to solve subtraction problems. I was so happy to meet and talk to some of you on Monday to talk about your children.
Mrs. Amoy Weschelman – 2nd Grade
Mrs. Wendy Apperson – 3rd Grade
Mr. David Ladner – 4th Grade
Unfortunately, I’ve had to be away from the classroom for a couple of days this week. All Ladner’s Landers have been working with substitute teachers in strengthening their multiplications skills. 4th graders have explored fossils and how they help scientists to see into the past. 5th grade science scholars have started a study on the food chain. The 1st quarter of explorations are coming to an end and the countdown to 2nd quarter mission has begun.
Ms. Jaimee Hebert – 5th Grade
Your kiddos have been busy this week. Your students will be switching to gym this coming Monday. They are all very excited! In reading we have started talking about comparing and contrasting. The kiddos have done a great job with this concept. In writing we have started writing our essays and we will begin our spelling homework next week. In social studies we finished our unit 2 section and took our test Friday. I have been very very proud of the fifth grade. They have all stepped up and completed their work and have had amazing behavior!
Ms. Arriane Brents – Middle School Language Arts and Social Studies
It was a pleasure meeting and speaking with all the parents last week. Putting names with faces is such a treat! This first quarter has been fantastic, and I’m looking forward to helping your scholars development academically and emotionally.
The week we are wrapping up our study of theme (7th grade) and interactions in fictional text (8th grade). We will have a short cycle assessment on Friday. I’m excited to see how far they’ve come from their preassessment, the post assessment on the 22nd!
Mr. Stephen Voegele – Middle School Math
It has been a busy week. Hopefully I got to meet your parents or guardians during conferences. Man first quarter is now done and it’s been fun. Now on to second quarter. 6th graders we are moving on to fractions. 7th graders we are continuing with positive and negative numbers. 8th graders continue working on transformations.
Ms. Jamie Isidore – Middle School Language Arts and Social Studies
We are closing out the last of this first quarter with a bang! The writing on Demand writing series showed me that my scholars have evolved into mini writers! Ms. Isidore classes are ramping up their curiosity for the new quarter! They are wondering what’s in store for the new quarter. 6th graders are working on how they can fix the Earth and composing a story about it! 8th grade scholars are researching the history of Thanksgiving! Once the new quarter starts October 17th, both classes are going to show how much they have grown as writers! Big shout out to Riverside Post! They show so much work ethics and they are taking accountability seriously!
It’s fall! The leaves are changing and soon there will be a “cool” breeze in the air. The resource room has been “buzzing” with lots of activities and engaging learning. Our younger children have enjoyed an “apple” unit. We have been reading, writing, rhyming and creating everything about apples. The students enjoyed making applesauce and doing a fine motor skill art project with paper. We have enjoyed some rich literature about fall and all the changes it brings.
Ms. Katherine Howell – Art
Dear Riverside Community and Families,
In class we are exploring new ways to safely create fun art projects.
I’m so excited to be able to get to know my new art students for this next quarter. We will be reviewing expectations and safety procedures in the classroom, while exploring different art making mediums each scholar likes to use.
Mr. Thomas Buckley – Physical Education
This week in PE, we wrapped up our first quarter for the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 7th and 8A group. We played games that they picked for the final week such as Kickball, Football, Sharks and Minnows, and Speedball. The students were very energetic this quarter and we look forward to working with the Kindergarten, 2nd, 5th, 6th and 8B classes next quarter.
