Ganondagan

We had a great trip yesterday! Everything went smoothly and the kids really seemed interested in most of the learning. Be sure to ask your child about his/her favorite part and don't take lunch as an answer!

Fun on the Farm

It's another field trip! Next Friday, September 29th, we'll be traveling to Lightland Farm. Upon arrival we'll load a wagon and take a tour of the farm. Then we'll have the opportunity to enjoy an ice cream cone and then back on the bus! There is more information on the field trip slip. Slips are behind the blue Friday Folder sheet. Parents are encouraged and invited to join us!

Math

Mrs. Closes's Class ~ The kids have been busy rounding! They've discovered that it's not as "easy" as they were thinking. We're going to glide through a review of multi-digit addition and subtraction and then focus on word problems. It's crucial that the kids show their work, organize their work, and put their final answers into sentences. Rounding will spiral back into our work when kids decide if their answers are reasonable. Keep those Exit Ticket corrections coming my way!



Ms. Gleason's Class ~ The children have been working hard with place value, comparing numbers and rounding. Next week we start addition and subtraction of multi-digit whole numbers. We will also be solving word problems and talking about the term, "reasonableness," as it pertains to answers for those problems. During the last few lessons of the module we go back to working with the place value chart to recognize that a digit represents 10 times the value of the digit to its right.

Book Orders

The kids asked me to keep the ordering window open until Monday. So, please place any online orders by noon on Monday and send in traditional orders first thing Monday morning.
