Troop E226 Weekly Update
The First Week Flew By....
Homework: Please remember that there is no set homework in place. I would greatly appreciate your child reading each night and working on Lexia a few days a week. Studies show the impact reading has on early language and literacy development. Even the impact reading to your child has on the brain is amazing.
I will start creating a choice menu starting next week for those of you who would like to implement homework.
*Card Stock (White)
My goal is to get our class a colored printer. Any Amazon gift card donations towards that is also greatly appreciated. If anyone is looking to get rid of their colored printer even, I would be willing to purchase that.
Next Week in the Camping World...
Writing: This week, students will be working on creating a narrative writing based on a real or imagined experience. As a group we will be working on the importance of descriptive details and a clear event sequence.
Math: Students will be introduced to graphing and place value. They will learn the importance of being able to read and create a graph. They will also learn when it is appropriate to use which type of graph (line graph, pictograph, bar graph.) Not only will they be creating graphs themselves, but will explore different real-world graphs. Students will also be reviewing place value, as well as being introduced to rounding numbers in the thousands place.
Innovation: Students will continue learning more about what engineering is and the process engineers go through using hands-on experiences.
Leader In Me: This week, we will continue working on introducing the 7 Habits as we read through our 7 Habits book. As a whole group, we will create our own classroom mission statement, which will allow for other classes to see what room E226 is all about and what we stand for.
