NOTEWORTHY NEWS BY MRS. FOSTER
WEEK OF DECEMBER 15, 2014
This week will bring us to Christmas Break. The students have worked hard this year. I have seen many gains academically as well as socially. I really love this group of kids. The students need to rest during this deserved break. I would encourage you to have your child continue to read for enjoyment during the break.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and am looking forward to a fun and bountiful new year.
We are doing a fabulous job at knowing our math facts. We can whip through the math worksheets that we use for review. I am so proud of them. We will be reviewing addition and subtraction this week. I am going to give the students some problems that look like this:
- _____ = _____ + _____
- _____ + 7 = 15
- 7 + 8 + 3 = _____
We will be working on building a model community.
We will be able to use all the information we have learned about communities to build our models.
PEARLS OF WISDOM:
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
