Newsletter Week 14
Meet... Emma Soto
We are so very excited to have you in 1.3, Emma! Welcome to Panama!
Updates from 1.3
We finished chapter 3 in math this week, and the students ROCKED their math test on visual patterns, number patterns and counting. Moving right along, in math next week, we will circle back around to measurement and temperature with a lot of hands-on activities and real-life application. Students will be measuring objects in the room and around school, as well as comparing temperatures of Panama City with other cities around the world.
Spelling this week was MUCH better than in week's past. I know that it is a new and different way of doing spelling, but I am confident that it will benefit your children's understanding of words in the future. Next week, our spelling pattern/ rule will be long i (spelled i-e). Words that follow this pattern are bike, stripe, mile. Again, there will be no specific spelling words. Simply have your child read every night with the goal of looking for long i words and recording them.
Pajama day was a great success!
On Friday, November 22, SRC will hold a shoe-athon. Anyone who brings in a pair (or more!) of shoes in good condition will get a casual day (no uniform).
All shoes will be donated to "Un Futuro Mejor Foundation," founded by Mr. Hackin to help Kuna children who live in the Panama City.
Also on Friday, November 22, SRC will hold a boli sale. A boli is a frozen icy in a plastic bag. Each boli will be 50 cents.
All the money raised will be used for the FANLYC Christmas party in December.
