A glimpse into your child's past week! December 4
Ho! Ho! Ho!
If you plan on attending/helping at the party please let me know so that we know what help we can count on that day. Our classroom is small, so we need everyone attending to be hands-on.
From there, in the new year, we will begin learning about SOUND energy. There are a lot of fun hands-on opportunities I have planned with that unit!
In Math we are in the midst of Topic 6. Students have been practicing ALL multiplication facts, 0-10 at this point. They should be practicing these at home as well. Students are able to login to their Google Classroom site and practice any of the MANY links we've learned from in class. These links are videos and games and are available at the site 24/7. The kids like them, so to ask them to practice during break wouldn't be any punishment!!
We are also in the midst of Multiplication Sundae quick quizzes. This means that students have been taking an (almost) daily quick quiz on the fact that they are working to master. Once they pass the quick quiz (40 problems, all correct in 3 minutes), they earn a portion of their sundae. Our actual Sundae Party will take place in February, but it's important to get working on memorizing the facts NOW!!! We will be moving on to division and then fractions in Math, but multiplication facts need to still be worked on!
Also, students brought home a Winter Break Multiplication Packet in their Friday Folder today. This should be returned the day we come back from break!!! A surprise treat is included with the return of this packet, ON TIME!!!
I used some of our Reading Group time, to go over student's progress towards their current AR goals. Many students received a wake-up call to get themselves busy and focused!
In addition to the Library books they check out each week, your child should have taken AR quizzes on the following books that I've read to them so far:
