Math W.O.W. (Word of the Week): Symmetry-is when one shape is exactly like another if you flip, slide or turn it.

This week in math we will be working on 2/3D shapes, symmetry as well as elapsed time. The students will be creating their own symmetrical work, decomposing 3D shapes and exploring how we use elapsed time in our lives!

Social Studies

In social studies this week, learners will be designing and drawing a new state. They will need a name for their state, major cities, a capital, natural resources, and landforms. I'm excited to watch their creativity!

Important Information

  • If your learner happens to have a paper we sent home last year in their poetry folders, they may bring it to school next week. It was called "25 Types of Poetry." It may be a long shot, but worth a try!

  • Valentine parties will take place on Friday, February 14th, from 2:00-2:45. Students may bring cards and treats for everyone to share if you would like! The students decided they would be using Reflex to find everyone name for their Valentines. We are looking forward to the party!
