Missing Work this week
Peek at the week!
Math: In math this week, we will continue our unit on division. Division is directly tied to multiplication, so please continue to support your student by making sure that they are comfortable with their basic multiplication facts!
Language Arts: We will continue accountability in daily five this week! Each day, the students will track their choices and what they accomplished during each round. Students will have the option to listen to reading, read to someone, read to self, work on words, and work on writing. We are focusing on how to write a well constructed response using evidence from the text.
In writing, we will begin our new unit on opinion writing.
Science: We are going to be continuing our unit that we started this past week on magnets!
Place Value disk instructional video!
Short division instructional video!
Leader of the week!
What's going on in room 312?
We were learning how to determine a topic by pulling out supporting details from the text, then responding to that information.
The kids loved the article we read about children in Syria and how the civil war is affecting their lives and education.
The kids did a great job working and learning together!
We enjoyed learning about the new composting system in the cafeteria this week! Student council did a great job with this!
In our morning meeting, the kids had to find another student who's math equation card matched theirs and tell them good morning!
The next day, students had to throw a paper airplane to another student and tell them something that they liked about them, or something that they are proud of them for.

-We are going to try to bring back community snack! I think that the kids are going to do a much better job at keeping our room clean this time. If you can donate snack that would be greatly appreciated! All that we ask is that the snacks come to the classroom prepackaged.
-We need one subject notebooks.
-As always, the most support we need is for you to continue to encourage your child to come to school and try their best! Also, to really help them in becoming a leader through emphasizing those leadership habits whenever possible.
Thank you for all that you do!
