We are getting into some "big kid" math this week looking at equations, expressions, and composing them! Then we will work our way into grouping numbers using the order of operations. Please do NOT show your kids PEMDAS or Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally. I know that's how we were taught, but I have a reason!!! If we teach them that is the rule, then they will always think that Multiplication comes before Division, or Addition comes before Subtraction, and that's NOT true! Multiplication/Division and Addition/Subtraction need to be done from left to right! It CAN affect the answer that they get!
Homework: We officially have our Think Through Math Log-ins!!
Think Through Math - Complete 1 Lesson
*Sometimes students will get to "skip" a lesson if they make a 100% or only miss one question on the pre-quiz. If this happens. Have them move onto the next lesson. If they pass that pre-quiz as well, then they are good for the week :)
**I can see when students complete lessons, how long it took them, and what their scores are. Students took a placement test this week, and the lessons are designed for their needs based off of the results of that test. Some students have upper level lessons, others may have some 3rd and 4th grade level lessons. This is because their placement test showed gaps for certain concepts.
Grammar Focus: Complete subject and predicate
Homework: Study Spelling Words
HOMEWORK: Vocabulary words for Week 5
*When the students show me their vocabulary definitions, I will give them a link to a game to help them learn their words
HOMEWORK: Read at least 20 minutes per night. Keep track in your agenda. A response will be posted on Tuesday. Please respond in your spiral.
Looking for a way to volunteer at the school? The library needs your help. Come to the library volunteer orientation Wednesday, September 9 at 10:00 and see if it is something you might be interested in doing. No experience necessary! If you are not able to make the orientation, please email or call Michelle Mayo at firstname.lastname@example.org or (469)633-4086 and we will gladly set up a more convenient time for you.
In order for someone else to pick up your child, those individuals need to be added to your child’s emergency contact list. These additions can be made by emailing our Data Clerk, Rhonda, Cowlishaw: email@example.com
This has also been asked a LOT this week: How do I change my child from a walker to a Carpool pickup (or whatever change they need): Changes need to be communicated by Noon! (This is also in the Parent Handbook)
