Week 4 update
This week Greenbriar officially introduced the Buddy Benches to the playgrounds. Thanks again to the PTO in matching last years student's contributions to have one bench for each playground.
Student Council is back in action. Two representatives from our class met to talk about ideas to better our school and community.
Read below to see what else we did this week.
Enjoy your weekend,
Ms. Collins and Mrs. Cucco
We're excited that our first test is behind us, up next is Chapter 2. We will be focusing on Multiplying 10's, 100's and 1,000's.
We also worked on our first Mentor Sentence. Each week we'll pick apart a sentence to identify parts of speech, grammar rules and literary devices. Then, we'll revise the sentence, imitate it and show what we learned about grammar by taking a quiz on Friday.
On Friday, students participated in a Reader's Theater of "The Boston Massacre". Students each took a role to help learn about what happened on March 5th, 1770 while participating in this fun activity.
Type to Learn
We have been working on our typing skills and they are improving! However, the students still need to focus on proper technique while practicing.
We are encouraging the student to:
- sit up straight (no yoga balls)
- feet flat on the floor
- fingers curved
- fingers on (or close to) the home keys
- eyes on the screen
While practicing at home, be sure to reinforce these skills. Please note that all assessments on Type to Learn will be completed at school.
