Next week, we'll move to the events leading up to the American Revolution. There is a great music video that the kids will watch towards the end of the week. Keep your ears open at home!
In addition, we have 5 small groups that meet and work for the last hour of each day. Wow, we are so busy each day!
Mr. Philipp's Class ~ Students seem really interested in our newest unit…geometry. Students were introduced to the protractor, learned about the names of various angles, and notable lines such as perpendicular, intersecting, and parallel lines. Ask your child the strategy on how to remember what an acute angle is and the definition of a parallel line. Each student is responsible for a protractor. They will need it for homework in the upcoming weeks. They are expected to use it for their assignments and bring it to class each day
Mrs. Gleason's Class ~ In module 4 we are learning about geometry. This week the class learned to use a protractor to measure and draw angles. Next week our focus will be symmetry, classifying triangles and finding missing adjacent angles. For this module, the children are expected to remember a lot of vocabulary. I will be sending home a vocabulary list, and it would be helpful to review the terms with your child. I expect to be finished with this module before February break.
