This week has been quite the frenzy! We've been spending much time working on routines and figuring each others' tendencies. I have learned lots and lots about my class thus far, and I must say, I am in for a treat! Thank you all that came to the Parent Night last night. Lots of great information was given, and more importantly, received!
In reading this week, we have discussed the importance of fantasy and realism in a story. We read a story titled Boom Town in which a girl moves west to California with her family during the gold rush of the 1850's. A test was given Friday. Students are allowed to use their stories. Students that earn lower than an 80% will correct it by finding the page number in which the question is located in the story.
In Math, we have been rounding numbers and looking at place values. The Go Math! series the students are using is a wonderful improvement on teaching Common Core! I am excited that we have this wonderful resource.
In science, we have been learning about life cycles of plants.
There is a yellow Technology Use Form that is being sent home for you and your child to sign and date so we have them on file. Please return this form with them to school next Tuesday.
Thank you for all you do.
Have a great weekend,
