The Light Bulb Labs
Big Ideas for the Week of April 28, 2016
This week we will dive into measurement. Students will be asked to measure to the nearest 1/4 inch. You can practice this at home with having your child measure all kind of objects around the house. In addition, this unit is great for getting your child into the kitchen. We will also look at cups, liters, gallons and other forms of capacity measurement. The more real life examples you help us provide, the more meaningful the work will be to our students! Have fun!
May brings about a very exciting time for teachers. We have the opportunity to read one on one with your child one last time. During this time we'll be completing the end of the year BAS assessment as well as, the AIMSweb Fluency assessment. We love this time and are excited to see how much our students have grown. This information will be shared with you in a few weeks so for now, just keep reading and finish the year strong!
Speaking of Influential People...
*If you are planning to participate in Teacher Appreciation activities (and know that your child coming to school every day is more than enough of a thank you), don't forget Mr. McCullough who spends every day with us! We simply could not pull together the type of enviornment we have without his support!
Last Few Items!
- Thanks to all of the families that donated to Mr. Staggs' gift basket. He was so surprised and overwhelmed! It was a wonderful way to end his time with us! That being said, Mrs. Frederick and Mrs. Thoma are excited to be back together team teaching away all day long!
- Please help us remind our students to check their bag for a snack before taking an emergency snack. Often times, we find that our students have a perfectly wonderful snack...it's just not so perfect or wonderful to them...any help or extra snacks are always appreciated!
- Library books are due Friday-thus beginning the quest to get all of the library books back and stocked before summer break. Be sure to look around for any books that may not belong at your house.
