Ms. Schmidt's Classroom News
February 15. 2016
- Math - 1 sheet each week
- Reading - Read for 20 minutes daily and if your child is reading at a level F or above, they have to answer 2 reading questions each week.
I try to limit the amount of homework students have because I value other experiences and events outside of school - boy/girl scouts, sports, free play, even video game time. Students need to have a good balance of activities to be well rounded.
What are we learning?
- Word Problems
- Addition and Subtraction Strategies
- Word Solving Strategies
- Persuasive Writing - Book Reviews and Persuasive Letters
- Economics - Students will explore wants/needs, supply/demand and many more economics concepts through an awesome learning experience - We will be planning a carnival!
Using Robots in the STEM Lab
- Jewelry Making
- Stop Animation
We are in need of a few volunteers to help every Friday from 8:20-9:20. Please let me know if you are available to help! Thanks!
Tip of the Week
You can help by reading with and to your child at night. If you're reading to your child, try reading books above their level. You can be a model for fluent reading. Reading higher books will expose students to new words and strengthen their vocabulary.
Let me know if you need any resources to help support your child's reading at home.
