Mrs. Lyons' Class Week 21
Math, Science, Social Studies
I absolutely loved reading some of the questions and things your children wrote on their MLK homework! We have some very sweet and thoughtful kids!
I will be out half a day tomorrow, Monday, January 25th. I will return by lunchtime.
Friday is our 100th Day of School! It will be a busy day with the fashion show, the Kindergarten Krewe of Gators and pep-rally. We will celebrate this day with 100 themed activities in Math!
BIG change in the classroom! Based on student feedback, I have made a change in my classroom seating arrangement. My class now has a mixture of 9 sitting desks and 8 standing desks. Some believe that many students do better standing while working and learning. The majority of students in both classes indicated that they would like to try standing desks. We will see who it works for and who it doesn't. This is not an old school punishment technique, but rather an idea to improve attention and interaction. ( I started with 1 standing desk on Friday and everyone wanted it!)
I'll update you as to the effectiveness. (Students will not be standing all day! They will be with Crowson half the day as well as sitting during enrichment classes.)
Sign and Return papers come home tomorrow!

If your child is seeing a tutor and you would like me to provide a reteach pack on weekly lessons, please let me know.
We will be jumping back into our textbook this week with a unit on Matter with lessons on describing matter, solids, liquids, and gases. Click the link below to review Science Ch. 9.
