Rocks and Minerals
In math we are learning differents ways to add double digit numbers (22+36). Soon, the students will pick ONE way that works for them and use that consistently. Soon we will learn about telling time to 5 minutes.
In reading we read stories and write extended responses to the stories. In an extended respose, the students restate the question asked, give details from the story to support their answer, and tell what they think about the answer. This is a great skill to practice at home! Ask your child a question about a book that you've read together. Have them prove through details what their answer is. Then ask them their personal thoughts about the answer.
Thanks so much to all of you who sent in money for our Math-a-Thon! I was able to purchase two games that we will use during the Math-a-Thon and throughout the year. We can still use parent volunteers, so please send me a note if you are able to help on February 16th in the morning.
We are running a bit short on boy ROAR prizes. If you are able to send some in, that would be awesome!
Be sure to check the side calendar on the blog for upcoming dates and events!!
Have a great week!!
