Soling Class Newsletter
By: McKenna and Ava
When we get to school in the morning, we unpack and we move our lunch stick if we are hot or cold. We change our gym shoes to go to gym with Mr. Boynton. We do our morning work which could be Daily fix-it where we have to fix mistakes in sentences. We could also do suffix pages, spelling pages or vocabulary pages.
In P.E. this week we are doing Fitness Testing. Mr. Boynton tests us with a loud speaker. It says either "Down up" or "Up down". We are doing push ups in the first section. We are doing a lot more in other sections too! Mr. Boynton teaches us and trains us for this moment. If you can help your children with these exercises then please do so. We also did the pacer test this week.
In math we are studying a lot for our unit math test on Wednesday. We are also studying for our math box quiz that we have every Friday. So make sure that your children study hard through the week. For our homework we are doing multiplication fact hunts. Make sure that your children are studying their multiplication facts.
In Music, we are practicing our songs. We are practicing Queen B, The flight of the Blunder Bee, One Old Owl, Welcome to recorder, Creature in the classroom, Hot Cross Buns and Here comes the sun. We practice these in music with Mrs. Karl. This week on Thursday we will be having Mrs. Soling's 3rd grade class's recorder recital. If you are able to come to this musical event please come.
In art we have officially completed our African Inspired Masks. We used color and made cool design patterns. We have moved on now that we are done with our African Inspired Masks. Now we are working on clay projects that are Pablo Picasso inspired. They have pipe cleaner hair and funky designs.
Our story this week is Fly Eagle Fly. It is an African Folk Tale. Our Focus Strategy is Cause and Effect. We read the story of the week on Tuesday. The question of the week is What behaviors are unique to different animals? We have new spelling and vocabulary this week so make sure your children study throughout the week.
