FIELD TRIP THIS FRIDAY
What's going on in the classroom?
We are still working on division, students are using our "cheat" sheet trick-- ask your child to see it. If you see your child solving division in a way that seems odd, just trust it. We will eventually build up to the ways your are accustomed to. If a child is struggling with homework please just send them to us to ask questions--- showing them the standard algorithm takes away from the learning process.
We appreciate your patience and help with this!
Reading and Writing
This week we are investigating the question of - How does weathering and erosion change the look of Earth’s landscape? This week will involve lots of hands on research and data collecting! Try quizzing your student over their essential vocabulary one evening this week!
Also-- did you know your child may bring a crew neck sweatshirt or a sweater, and keep in their locker? This way if they are cold in the classroom they may use it as needed.
