Mrs. Foulk's News


Joyful News!

I am so excited to share with you that I am expecting my first child. My husband and I are both filled with joy as well as anxious to start this new experience. I have shared with the students today (Friday). We do not know if it is a boy or a girl yet. We plan to find out, but it won't be for a couple of months still.

Next Week:


Our next unit will focus on the skills of rounding, estimation and addition/subtraction within 1,000.


We have introduced all of the steps in the writing process. We will now begin our first writing unit that will focus on a specific type of writing. We will be creating a "memoir", or a story from a specific point in our life.

Reading: We will begin practicing what it should look like to write a response about our reading. I will send some examples through email so you can see what is expected from their reading homework in October.

Social Studies: We will continue to discuss the importance of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution next week. We got so caught up in what life was like in the "colonial era" that we didn't make it all the way through our documents. The kids really seem to be enjoying comparing life from that time period to what life is like now.

Unfair Taxes:

On Tuesday, the students had a chance to experience what the colonists felt like when they were taxed unfairly. They were given candy pieces and then forced to turn them over to the "king" for characteristics that they could not control. Many of them began to question why the colonists, "didn't do anything about it". I explained that they did, and so we began our discussion about how our country came to be.
