Heroes and Texan Horns Newsletter

For the week of 2/15

Many, Many Heartfelt Thanks!

Thank you so much for helping make our class parties successes! We truly appreciate all you do for our classes.

Additionally thank you so much for all of the gifts and tokens of love! We definitely felt the love!! :)

On the hunt...

I am on the hunt for desktop podiums and lecterns! I love the idea of having standing desks in our classroom, but the desk legs only raise the desk so high, and true standing desks are a little costly for me. (I do anticipate that there is an attempt at grant writing for this in my future.) I'm hoping that businesses may be getting rid of podiums, and if we all are on the lookout, I might be able to snag a couple for the classroom!!

Our Learning Targets...

Reading - I can make connections between texts with similar ideas.

Writing - I can recognize and use quotation marks correctly in reading and writing with proper punctuation.

Social Studies - I can learn about the missions in Texas.

Math – I can measure and draw angles of given measurement using a protractor. I can determine the measure of an unknown angle formed by two non-overlapping adjacent angles given one or both angle measures

Science - I can observe and identify the slow changes to the surface of the Earth caused by weathering, erosion, and deposition from water, wind, and ice.
