                                         to Ms. Ziesmann's Class                                             


This year I have many exciting learning opportunities in store for your children. First, your child will undergo formative assessments that will help to determine their individual strengths and weaknesses. Students will work in collaborative groups as they learn such skills as reading, spelling, addition, subtraction, shapes, patterns, graphing, measurement and how to count coins.

Additional activities during the school year include observing and recording the life cycle of mallards from incubator to maturity.
