Math

Mrs. Close's Class ~ We are more than halfway through Module 4. You will find the graded Topic A Quiz in your child's Friday Folder. This week the kids have worked on determining missing angle measurements using equations, 90 degree rotations, and drawing angles. During the upcoming week we'll continue our work with finding missing angle measurements. In addition, the kids will review symmetry and then move on to classifying triangles! Don't forget that exit tickets can be corrected and returned!


Ms. Gleason's Class ~ On Tuesday we will do the last lesson from Module 3. We will review and take the test on Thursday, January 18th. The assessment will cover multiplication, division, factors, and multiples. Our next module is our geometry module. The children will learn about different lines, angles, and shapes. They will learn how to measure and draw angles using a protractor. There are many new words for the children to learn in this module.


Mr. Hart's Class ~ Since we returned from break we have continued to work on Module 3, yesterday we finished the last lesson in the module. Today I am going to begin to review the module. On Tuesday we will continue to review and on Wednesday we will take an assessment for Module 3. My hope is that using 2 days to review I can catch students up that are still struggling with the concepts. On Thursday I will be gin to teach Module 4. This is a module on geometry. In this module we will learn about different types of lines and angles, how to measure and draw angles, and two-dimensional figures and symmetry.

Thank you for volunteering your time! Your help will allow this to be an amazing experience for our students K-5!

Headphones

Every student needs to have a pair of ear buds or headphones in the classroom. Please check in with your child to be sure that s/he is set. We use them every day!

ELA

PAWS ~ I handed out PAWS #6 to the kids yesterday. That way, if they choose, they can get a head start with at least the planning portion of the assignment.


Picture Book Friday ~ Finally!!! Moving forward, each Friday, a 4C student will read a picture book to the class. There were a handful of volunteers to get us started, but Lucas will be the first reader on Friday the 19th!

Instruments

Kids will need to bring their instruments on Tuesday this week. They've lucked out for the 3rd week in a row to have lessons on the same day as ensembles!
