We are all researching Penguins for Jiji’s Birthday this week!

Kindergarten is researching Emperor Penguins on Pebble Go and telling me 1 fact they learned. Then we wrote down all of our facts and shared them with each other. In first grade, students were able to pick any penguin on Pebble Go and answer questions such as where do they live? What do they eat? Etc. Second graders also researched penguins and were able to write 5-7 facts about their specific type. Third graders are wrapping up their Scratch/Makey Makey project where they are finishing their game controllers and putting everything together!


This week in Physical Education, we are starting our Lacrosse Unit. Students across all grades are mastering the techniques of scooping and raking the ball from the ground, as well as cradling the ball while in motion. Additionally, students in grades 1-3 are discovering how to navigate around defenders while carrying the ball. In grades 2 and 3, students are also beginning to work on their throwing and catching abilities.


We had a wonderful week full of fun and learning! We have been practicing digraphs in our reading - th, sh, ch and wh. In math, we practiced comparing length of objects using phrases such as shorter than, taller than, or longer than.We are looking forward to our field trip to Round the Bend Farm next week. Please make sure your child’s permission slip has been sent in. Thank you so much to the PTO for making this trip possible!


First grade had a wonderful time on their field trip to the Lloyd Center in Dartmouth this week. Students had fun exploring different habitats, fishing for ocean treasures and examining different aquatic animals. We are so glad the weather cooperated for us to enjoy our first grade field trip!

In reading this week we discussed inventions. In math we have been learning about shapes and all of their attributes.  


This week the Lakeville Garden Club and the AES second grade students will be celebrating Arbor Day on Friday, April 26th.  The first Arbor Day was celebrated in Nebraska on April 10, 1872. One MILLION trees were planted that day!  For many years, our local garden club has delivered a free lesson about trees to Assawompset School’s second-graders. Also, the garden club teachers present a Blue Spruce seedling tree to all of the second grade students.  On Friday, your child will be bringing home a live tree with directions on how to plant it. Please try to plant the tree as soon as possible so the roots do not dry out. Trees clean our air, give us shade, shelter animals, and absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Be sure to plant your new tree. Many thanks to the Lakeville Garden Club. 


Grade 3 is busy wrapping up area and perimeter in math, heading into geometry and then math MCAS. In reading we are starting Unit 5 in Wonders. Our first topic is citizenship and biography; we will learn how to read and understand a biography while studying people who are examples of good citizenship.In science we are learning about weather and climate.
