Ms. Ruiz's Class Newsletter
We hope you enjoyed your lovely day off of school!
The students will be bringing their Friday Folder home this weekend. Please take a minute to look at your child's Math test and other work inside. The students are expected to get their Friday Folder signed every weekend and return it to school on Monday. They have been doing a great job of learning all of the classroom routines and procedures!
Read below to find out what we did in room 203 this week.
Enjoy Your Weekend,
Ms. Ruiz and Ms. Mustafa
Another friendly reminder on Math facts. If you notice your child is not automatic with his/her recall of multiplication facts, please encourage nightly practice. The website link below, "Dad's Worksheets", has eight rules for mastering multiplication. I showed the students this site during the week and they found it very helpful. They even asked me to share it with you all!
Next week, we will be continuing Chapter 2 on Multiplication and Division of Whole Numbers.
Next week, we will begin learning different strategies for close reading!
*The students have a goal of reading forty books by the end of the year. After your child is finished reading a book, they are expected to write a reading response on their book in order to add a sticker to their goal chart.
The students also learned about the First Continental Congress. Did you know the building where their first meeting took place is still around today?
Students began brainstorming ideas of small moments that they would like to write about!
Type to Learn
We are encouraging the student to:
- sit up straight
- feet flat on the floor
- fingers curved
- fingers on (or close to) the home keys
- eyes on the screen
While practicing at home, be sure to reinforce these skills. Please note that all assessments on Type to Learn will be completed at school.
