Our field trip to Greenfield Village is this Wednesday. Please arrive at the late start time of 9:35. We will take attendance and leave immediately. Yes, we will be going whether it is raining or the sun is shining, chilly or warm. Please, please dress your child accordingly. I would definitely recommend a warm jacket.
There is a scavenger hunt for our kids to complete. Due to the shortened day and the scavenger hunt, we expect the kids to stay out of the playground area.
Chaperones, please bring a backpack or large bag, to carry your group’s lunches. I have 11 chaperones for our class of 21. You might just have your own child, or you might have your child and one other. If you only have your child, please walk with another chaperone. Have fun! Work together to complete the scavenger hunt. Thank you!
We had a successful Birthday Bash on Friday. Thank you Mrs. Soueid and Mrs. Hazime for planning the celebration. Thank you Mrs. Sobh for letting us grab you to run a game.
We are gearing up for our NWEA. I will be giving the reading and math NWEA in the classroom, as I have with the past two. Our goal is to show the projected growth. I cannot say exactly when we will be taking them, but the window opens today.
We are meeting again for reading groups. We will continue to meet until the end of the year, but book bags will only go home until the end of May.
We are finishing up any writing pieces that are in our folder. We will write a How to… together. Then our last piece will be a Text Dependent Analysis using a R.A.N. chart. One writing piece will go into the time capsule, the rest will come home at the end of the year.
We have finished all of the words that go along with our Treasures series. We will not have anymore words for an official assessment on Friday, but we will continue to learn spelling patterns during Word Work of our Daily 5.
We will continue adding and subtracting with place value (tens and ones), these will move into number stories aka story problems. The goal is to get the students to be fast and flexible adding tens to tens and ones to ones. Also, also the goal of the number stories is for the students to show their thinking with quick tens and ones, number bonds, tape diagrams, ten frames, and symbols of comparison (<,>, and =).
We are moving to reptiles and amphibians. We took a break to do Social Studies.
We learned about the 8 National Holidays, calendars, learning about the past by asking grandparents and great-grandparents questions about when they were little, and artifacts. This is leading us to our field trip. We have a scavenger hunt to find artifacts and information based on the history and the past.
