What's Up in the Classroom
Writing - We are moving on to narrative writing next week with an "Explode the Moment" experience. Ask your child about this on Monday as it is a secret right now!
Math - Division is our next math unit. We will be keeping students in their same classroom as multiplication. The skill was foreign to 95% of them so we will adjust as needed once the unit gets started.
Spelling - We will do the same sort as this week, next week. With the three-day week and the craziness of Wednesday, it just made more sense to continue working on the same sort.
Science - Students are finishing up the control system unit and will be testing next Friday. They all have a study guide and should be studying for a few minutes each night.
Laid Back / Tailgate Incentive
Incentive. I, on the other hand, just barely survived! I am an organization nut and seeing my classroom in such disarray, almost made me cry. Their smiling faces made it worth it. Thank goodness we only do one of these a year!
