2/12-Caring Through Sharing Event
We are working on our Geometry unit in math. We have been learning about area of rectangles and triangles and applying it to real world problems. We also learned how to use a protractor to measure and draw angles. We will be looking at rotational symmetry, volume, and nets of shapes. It is good practice to review 4th and 5th grade IXL math at night when there is some extra time.
Caring Through Sharing
We will be constructing fleece tie-blankets on February 12th to donate to Children’s Hospital. These blankets will benefit and comfort the many sick children that spend time at the hospital. We are going to start by collecting money and loose change to purchase fleece for the blankets. We will have a friendly competition to see which class can collect the most money towards purchasing fleece. We will then take our “fleece fund” and purchase a variety of fleece sets at JoAnn Fabrics. Please feel free to send in any JoAnn Fabric coupons as well. Please send in your donation between NOW and February 5th. We will be asking for volunteers to help cut the fleece and prepare the blankets before our service learning project on February 12th. Please consider donating your time to help fringe the blankets. Heather Seigler will be heading up this event with Mrs. Skogstad. These blankets will definitely provide warmth and comfort to many sick children, but also warm the hearts of our students.
