Team 103 Super Heroes
Finding the Power Within!
This Week we're learning:
Literacy - We practiced our fluency and expression with a Reader's Theater performance on "A Visit from St. Nicholas". That was after defining some of the unusual vocabulary words and finding all of the similes in the poem. This week we'll be learning about Christmas around the world with non-fiction reading. AR goals are due Tuesday! Please make sure that your child is reading at home every night.
Mathematics - We'll be doing some holiday math activities this week that practicing our computation skills and graphing skills. We'll keep working on our multiplication facts also. Many of us are making good progress. Practice those multiplication facts every night for 5-10 minutes and you too can be a MIGHTY MULTIPLIER!
Science- We're finishing our integrated math/science project involving physical change, conservation of mass, and area. Oh, and by the way.....it's going to be a lot of fun too!
You are your child's first and greatest teacher!
Home Hero Connection
Reading -Use the time this holiday to start a new tradition. There are lots of great holiday reads out there - read a holiday story out loud in your family. We're never too old to be read to!!! Some great suggestions are: "Twas the Night Before Christmas", "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever", and "A Christmas Carol".
BREAKING NEWS FROM TEAM 103!
AVOID BRAIN FREEZE! There is no assigned homework over the vacation. If you would like your child to keep their skills fresh, here is a site that provides a practice packet that may be completed. If your child completes the packet, they can redeem it for a homework pass and ice cream when they return. The site also provides opportunities for prizes. This is completely optional. https://thinkstretch.com/wp-content/thinkstretch/brainfreeze.html Check it out!
Wishes for a wonderful Christmas holiday filled with family, fun, and time together. It's time to create lasting memories. Have fun and be safe. I look forward to seeing you all again in 2016!
