The Scene in 214
What have we been up to?!
We start each morning with a short meeting that allows us to greet one another, share about ourselves and participate in a group activity.
GoNoodle is a favorite for a quick movement break before diving back into learning.
We've used iMovie to demonstrate sentence types as we learned about Imperative, Interrogative, Exclamatory and Declarative sentences.
PICTURE DAY is OCTOBER 9th!
- Math Menus
Each week, Math Menus (yellow) will go home on Monday. They are due on Friday. Students must answer at least two of the three questions in each column to the best of their ability. All work must be shown for credit!
Planners will be filled out each day to give you a little glimpse of what we're doing each day. Homework or important notes will be highlighted. If it is not highlighted, it is not homework but rather what we worked on that day.
Each week, a Spelling/Vocabulary list (blue) will go home on Monday. The students work on a Spelling Word Work sheet (purple) AT SCHOOL to practice their words throughout the week. Completion of three of the word work activities is due Friday. On Thursdays, students may take their purple sheet home to return on Friday if they haven't completed three of the activities.
Cursive is not one of our MN State Standards, and therefore will not be a focus in our classroom this year. If you would like your student to continue to practice cursive, weekly vocabulary and spelling practice at home is a great way to do so!
- Infinite Campus
Infinite Campus is still in the process of being set up so that grades can be entered.
Stay in touch with what we're doing in the classroom by signing up for this online journal. Sign up if you haven't already.
As your student may have mentioned, we have not started any work with science or social studies, YET. We are still waiting on our new curriculum, so be on the lookout for more information in next month's newsletter!
