Weekly Update- October 27, 2017

Week at a Glance

We had a strange week due to testing and our party today!

Math- We continued working on multiplication through arrays and ratio tables. We've been really examining doubling and how it can help us with other multiplication facts.

Social Studies/Science- We started our first e4tech lesson which really encompasses math, science and social studies! We looked at a map and determined a path that someone could take based on a story problem we were given. All of our buildings on the map had to meet certain constraints.

Reading/Writing- On Monday we worked on our informational writing pieces and looked at question types we might see on the state test. The rest of our week, reading time was dedicated to state testing.

One School One Book

The Primary School will be announcing an awesome, all-school project starting next week. The project is called "One School, One Book," and for the month of November, every student will be reading the same book! :)

The project is optional, but I'm confident students and families will want to participate.

All the reading will be done at home, therefore, we will not have any homework for the month of November. I'm hoping this will encourage everyone to participate. :)

Watch a fun video we showed students to introduce the project:

Fall Party

Thank you so much to Carol Bahr for putting the fall party together, and to all of the parents who volunteered their time and/or materials. The parents always make these parties awesome for our kiddos, and I really appreciate all of the work you do!! :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your Scholastic book orders!! You may not know it, but every time you place an order for your child, our classroom earns free books and points to purchase books.

Our kiddos are SO excited when they see a book box come in.

I truly believe that the way students become better readers is when they develop a love of reading. When I see their faces light up over new books, I know they are developing that love of reading. You are truly making that happen, so THANK YOU!
