A peek into our week - April 29, 2016
Two Bear Cubs - our play is going well! We have 2 casts - each student having a part. We've practiced and decided on props! Next week we will continue to practice and perform for our buddies on Thursday. I will also be taking video of each cast and will send it to you! Gotta love technology!
We've also been working on a story structure project. These will be hanging in the hallway for the learning celebration on Thursday evening.
Math and our Academic Goals
Multiplication Facts - we've worked on 0-8s. Next week we are adding square facts and 9s. The square facts they should already know! If your child has NOT mastered 3, 4, and 6s yet, they will have a practice sheet at recess to finish before they go out to play. They will also have a chance to take the 1 minute test on Wednesday as well as Friday! We need to get these mastered :)
Ask your child about their "Within One Week" goal for this week. Did they meet their goal? What did they do to meet that goal? Have they thought about what the goal will be for next week, is it the same or different? These are also being kept in our Leadership Notebooks.
Economics and Cranbrook
Cranbrook came on Thursday and boy did I learn a lot! I think the kids did too :) We played a couple money games to illustrate how trading/exchanging worked as well as owing a business and shopping with a limited amount of money!
Each shop owner needed to decide what price they would charge. They knew the wholesale price and needed to make a profit! The Sunglass Hut sold out right away! What does that teach us!
Penny Drive and Mustaches for Make A Wish
They know they are to ASK if they can bring in money to donate before bringing it in. Also, they know that any donation is greatly appreciated if it is one cent or $5.
Thank you for your help!
If you have gold, you want silk. If you have silk, you want gold... How are you going to get it if you have to stay in your row?
Items to exchange
Each row had a different item.
You started with 3 items... how did some of you end up with 2 and others with 4?
