Happy New Year! I can't believe that we are in the month of January. I hope all of you had the opportunity to spend some time with all of your family and friends during the holiday season. In Math this week we continued to count money. Students worked on a packet in small groups. Here is a cute website to help count money: http://www.abcya.com/money_bingo.htm
Next week we will start 3-digit addition without regrouping. After students have been introduced to 3-digit addition without regrouping, we will start 3-digit addition with regrouping. If your child is still struggling with 2-digit addition/subtraction, please continue to review this at home as well as work on addition facts. Math homework is DMH #14.
Holiday Fun with Mrs. Ross's Kinder Class!
In Science this week, we have discussed weather, and the water cycle. We also talked about being prepared in case there is dangerous weather such as a hurricane. Some of your children may have already talked with you about having a disaster kit. Students have not completed the weather booklet yet. We will complete the rest of it next week.
Today, your child will be taking home a Science homework booklet. Science homework will be assigned on Fridays, and it is due the following Friday. Please note that we are very limited on Science homework booklets. If your child accidentally loses it, a xerox copy will be provided. This week's homework assignment in Science is to complete pp. 3-5 (part 3, week 1). Please encourage your child to use their study guide for help. I hope that all of you have an amazing weekend!
WRITING DPM INFO:
Next week Tuesday and Wednesday we will be working on our DPM test for writing. This will be to write a personal narrative story like we have done so many times in the past. We are going to review personal narratives Monday to help prepare them for Tuesday and Wednesday. If you have any questions please let me know.
