Merry Christmas From The Kentop & Zavernik Families!
Jingle Down To Rooms 4 & 5....
*All classes took their chapter 3 math assessment. When we get back after break, we're diving into Unit 4 (Algebra) --Your child can get a head of the game by using the "Splash Math App" on their iPads and practice the "Algebra" category.
*Science: We assessed our knowledge on electricity! The class worked diligently on this unit and really embraced their problem solving skills. Many noticed that they need to work on patience, because it wasn't always easy to complete the tasks assigned each day. They had to persevere through the tough stuff!
*Writing: Over break Mrs. Z & Mrs. Kentop will be enjoying (several) cups of coffee while looking over your child's narrative pieces. Right now we're learning about the structure/format of an opinion essay. The hardest part is developing a thesis statement! Stay tuned!
*Reading: Over break, please encourage your child to read for at least 20 minutes each day.When break is over, we will be conducting the winter round of the "Running Record" to see your child's progress in his/her reading level.
We ended today with our Polar Express incentive and PJ Party!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
We hope you enjoy the holiday break with your family and are able to relax...(Even just a little!)
Mrs. Kentop & Mrs. Zavernik
CALLING ALL JUNK!
Absolutely anything that we can use to have the kids use their imaginations and create!
