Mrs. Waggoner's News
October 3 - October 7
Have you heard?
Wednesday is National Walk to School Day - many teachers will be waiting at the UH Hospital at the corner of Mentor Ave. and Hopkins Rd. starting at 8:00am (departing for school at 8:25am). We are encouraging as many students as possible to participate in this walk. There will be NO morning spark that day for those students that signed up for that program.
We have a busy week coming up!
Have a great week!
Math - Chapter 2 is underway and we will continue working with large number multiplication and division as well as Order of Operations. Exponents were introduced last week. Students are struggling with their facts. Please practice this at home along with the 60 of Moby Max. It is so important to practice!! We will have a chapter 2 test on Friday (tentatively). See the School to Home Connection below for ways to help your child. Some children have no understanding of double digit by double digit multiplication.
English Language Arts (ELA) - Students are working on getting the hang of "Workshop." They are deep into their novels at this time and word study.
Writing - We started and will continue writing in the narrative genre. We have made many entries for our writer's notebook and will be pulling out a story to publish very soon. I added the Spelling City link to the "helpful links" below so students may study their word lists throughout the week.
Social Studies / Science - Students will continue to study geography and will begin landforms in social studies. Our ecosystem unit is underway. We've talk about food chains and food webs and the way energy transfers throughout an ecosystem. Students discussed biotic and abiotic factors in an ecosystem.
