News from Room 4
March 10, 2017
What we will be learning/doing next week:
Due to half days we are going to focus on math in the morning and will not continue with our next Language Arts Unit.
We will be reviewing the following math concepts:
-10 more 10 less than a number
- Place Value
- True or False equations
- Writing our own equations
-Double digit equations
There will be NO parent volunteers next week due to half days.
Optional Artist Research Project
Over the next 4 Fridays an index card will be sent home with an artist's name on it. If your child would like to participate they may research with you to come up with at least 3 interesting facts about the chosen artist. They can return the index card anytime the following week and present their facts in front of the class. This is a wonderful opportunity to developed research and public speaking skills. Today, look for the index card with Georgia O'Keeffe on it. Enjoy!
On Thursday, March 16th we will celebrate the 120th day of school. It will be filled with fun counting activities. Please send in 120 items that can fit in a zip lock bag. They need to be either the same items or the same theme and NO food items. Ex: buttons, tiles, rubber bands, pencils, etc. These items will not be returned and will add to the first grade counting bin. Thanks!
