Mrs. Kennedy's Friday Letter
February 12, 2016
A peek into our week
We enjoyed visiting the 3rd and 4th grade Time Line, having a Valentine's Day party, and even a little snow this week. Now, who's ready for Spring and where is that crazy groundhog?
A BIG thank you to Mrs. Brandenburg and all her party helpers. Our party was so much fun!
Science - Simple machines are all around us making our work easier - even on the playground.
Thank you for everyone who signed up to bring in items for upcoming Science Experiments!
Soc. Studies - Unit on Tennessee
Math- We introduced the chapter on fractions and will continue this next week.
Bible - We only touched on our study of Gideon and will also continue this next week.
ELA - Break Out at the Bug Lab was our book during Book Club.
-Our Penguin Reports are done and they did a fantastic job. Now it's time to create our Did You Know Bubbles and make life sized penguins.
AR and Math Facts
AR and Math Facts- Please try to work on these at home. Remember the goal for reading is 20 minutes a night. And it only takes 2 minutes to practice Math Facts at home. I promise it will make a big difference!
Do you have 30 minutes to an hour each week to help with Math Facts in a Flash? I need someone to work with individual students using flash cards for Math Fluency. Let me know if you can help- thanks:)
Feb. 15th - No school
MTCS/MTSU Math Night - Thursday, Feb. 18th 5-7pm
