BAGS OF HOPE !


Our school will be collecting items to fill reusable bags and giving these bags to a homeless shelter in Detroit.  

Our class will be donating Flashlights with BatteriesWe are requesting every student in our class bring in the above item by Wednesday, February 26, 2020. Our Student Lighthouse Team will assemble the bags and take them to the homeless shelter. 

Help us make this community service project a success!

Remember you can purchase the flashlight along with batteries at the local dollar store.

Tests

I was out Friday so I was unable to check the spelling tests. I have and they should be coming home tomorrow.

The Math test took most students 2 days to complete. Friday and Monday so they will take a little longer to score and get back to you.

Thank you for your patience.

Valentines Day is Friday!

What a wonderful wrap up to our Spirit Week is Valentine’s Day!!!!

We will be having a small party. I have asked the room parents for cookies and juice boxes. I really appreciate their help with this so Thank you again!!!

Students can pass out Valentines to their friends and a piece if candy if you would like to. This is not something you have to do. We will decorate bags for their cards and sweets.

It is easiest if you have them write their names as to who it is from and then pass out to the 25 students. If they would like they can write names on them but it takes much longer for them to write them out. I will post only students first names on the blog for you, but again it is not necessary.

With this being a small event on the last day of school I can host this one by myself. I am planning to begin around 2:30 if you need to drop something off for your child.

Thank you for your understanding and Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and a relaxing Mid-Winter Break!

Remind your child to use Zearn, RazKids, and read!!!

Teacher of the Year Nominations!

Students First-

Inspire, Educate, Celebrate

Time to nominate your favorite Dearborn teacher!

It’s time for students to nominate their favorite Dearborn Public Schools teacher for the 2020 Alberta Muirhead Teacher of the Year Students’ Choice Award, sponsored by the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce and presented by LaFontaine Automotive Group.  The nomination deadline is Monday, March 9, 2020 at 5 p.m.  Nomination forms can be found at the District website at https://dearbornschools.org.

Printed nomination forms may be picked up at any Dearborn Public School and the District’s Administration Office, 18700 Audette. Completed forms can be dropped off or mailed to the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce, 22100 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, MI 48124 or faxed to (313) 584-9818. Adults may assist students in completing nominations when necessary, but no more than two teachers can be nominated per student.

Students may nominate any new or veteran teachers whom they feel has made outstanding contributions to the teaching profession.  Pre-school through second grade students are asked to describe how their teacher makes learning fun.  Students in this category can include a nice drawing, if they wish, but it will not be part of the selection process.  Third through fifth grade students must describe how their teacher has created a classroom where learning is positive and fun.  Middle school students (grades 6-8) are asked to explain how their teacher connects classroom learning with everyday life.  Students in high school must describe how their teacher is preparing them to be college and career ready.

“Nominating a teacher for this award is an outstanding way for students to show teachers how much their work is valued and appreciated and the positive impact teachers have on students’ lives. We have so many excellent teachers deserving of this recognition, and I hope many of our students will take a few moments to nominate their favorite teacher,” said Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Glenn Maleyko.

Applications will be assessed on the quality of the nomination, not on the number received.  Award judges are members of the Dearborn Chamber Education Committee and are not provided with the teachers’ names.  One winner from each category will be announced at a special ceremony to be held at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center on Thursday, April 23, at 4:30 p.m. 

Teachers selected to receive the Teacher of Year Award are recognized as positive role models who consistently provide unique, productive, positive classroom experiences.   Winning teachers receive a $1,000 cash prize and a glass award commemorating their achievement.  They also will join a select group of Dearborn teachers who have been recognized by the community for their dedication and passion for teaching.

“I want to thank the Chamber of Commerce and all the sponsors for once again providing this event,” Maleyko added. “Our district is very fortunate to have so many great community partners.”

Book Fair

Dear parents,

If we end up having a snow day on Thursday, we will open the book fair on Friday from noon until 1:30. THIS IS ONLY IF WE HAVE A SNOW DAY. If there is no snow day, our last day to purchase books at the Scholastic book fair will be Thursday from noon until 4:00. 

Week of 1-27-20

We are half way through the year, Wow has time flies!

We are beginning new units in some subjects others (Math) are are continuing onward.

Social Studies – Government

Lesson 2 – This lesson begins with a connection back to Unit 1 as students review the reasons people live in communities. Students re-examine a scenario from unit 1, exploring how people form community governments in order to keep them safe. The need for safety is then tied to the need for laws and services in a community. Finally, students explore how government can help solve problems in a community. As an assessment and culminating activity, students complete an open-ended sentence beginning “People form governments because …” and illustrate their idea. Illustrations are gathered together to create a class book entitled Why People Form Governments.

Math – Continuing Module 4 Beginning with lesson 23 (decomposing numbers)

Topic E – KEY CONCEPT OVERVIEW Additional sample problems with detailed answer steps are found in the Eureka Math Homework Helpers books. Learn more at GreatMinds.org. SAMPLE PROBLEM (From Lesson 23) Solve by using a number bond to subtract from 100. 115 – 80 = 35 100 – 80 = 20 20 + 15 = 35 During the next week, our math class will deepen our understanding of the repetitive nature of the subtraction algorithm. Students will unbundle 1 hundred for 10 tens and 1 ten for 10 ones when necessary. Through practice, students will discover that just as we asked, “Do I have enough ones?” we can ask, “Do I have enough tens?” The only difference is in place value. You can expect to see homework that asks your child to do the following: ▪ Use number bonds to subtract from 100. (See Sample Problem.) ▪ Use place value disks, place value disk drawings, and the chip model to model and subtract from three-digit numbers. ▪ Use the RDW process to solve word problems involving subtraction. GRADE 2 | MODULE 4 | TOPIC E | LESSONS 23–28 For more resources, visit » Eureka.support HOW YOU CAN HELP AT HOME GRADE 2 | MODULE 4 | TOPIC E | LESSONS 23–28 ▪ Use consistent language to help your child through the subtraction process. For example, to solve 172 – 56, you might say, “Let’s look at the ones place first. Do you have enough ones to subtract 6 ones?” (No, because 6 ones are more than 2 ones.) “Where can you get more ones?” (From the tens place.) “Show what happens in the tens place.” (7 tens becomes 6 tens.) “How many ones do you have in the ones place now?” (12 ones.) Continue with, “Now, let’s look at the tens place. Do you have enough tens to subtract 5 tens?” (Yes, there are 6 tens.) And so on. Encourage your child to use place value language to respond, and have him record his work. ▪ Help your child to organize her place value disk or chip model drawings as neatly as possible, with dots or place value disks in 5-group formation. This will assist her in quickly seeing quantities and noticing whether there are enough ones or tens to subtract. ▪ Practice subtraction facts up to 20, and encourage your child to use simplifying strategies for any facts that he has trouble recalling. For example, to solve 16 – 9, use the take from ten strategy: “I can break 16 into 10 and 6, and 10 – 9 = 1 and 1 + 6 = 7, so 16 – 9 = 7.”

Reading – We are finishing up DRA’s and NWEA’s we may have to restructure some groups. Please continue having your child Read and write in their Reading Logs.

Writing – We are beginning an Opinion paper! We have been working on good leads, 3 reasons, and a conclusion. Students will have to edit and revise their paper. This will happen over multiple weeks.

Spelling – List 19; The pattern is /au/ and /aw/

Please see spellingcity.com along with their orange folder for a list of the words.
