Wiley Weekly 12/4
Mrs. Wiley's Crew
Dear UMAC Parents,
Progress reports will be available on ParentVue starting December 11. Progress reports will not be printed and sent home, they will only be accessible online. If you have trouble accessing your child’s report card, please call the help desk line at 815-788-5080 or email email@example.com Please remember that the students are assessed on end of the year literacy standards so you will see a lot of 2's in these areas. That is a fabulous score and I'm so proud of all my learners!
All of the schools in District 47 have the same guidelines for determining if recess will be indoors or outdoors. If the temperature is 15 degrees or above, students are expected to go outside for the entire recess. If the temperature is 0 - 14 degrees, students go outside for 20 minutes. If the temperature is below 0 degrees, students have indoor recess. Please make sure your student is dressed appropriately for the winter weather.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Early English Settlements
Old Friends: Our old friends completed chapter 4 this week. I can definitely tell that many friends have been practicing their math facts! When able to recall facts quickly and accurately, students are much more successful in tackling more complex, multi-step problems. Next week we will dive into chapter 5 which focuses on fractions, decimals, and percents.
New Friends (from Mrs. Barrett): It is crucial that new friends know their multiplication facts to be successful. This week we used multiplication to solve multiple step problems. First, students made magnitude (rough) estimates to judge whether a product is in the tens, hundreds, thousands or more. Then, we used the traditional method to solve for the exact answer. Next week we will identify digits and their values in whole numbers to the hundred billions. We will also use exponential and expanded notations to represent powers of 10.
