We are scheduled to take our class pictures on Thursday, October 23rd. Any student that was gone on the first picture day, or that would like to have their picture retaken will do so on this day as well!
We had an incredible in-school field trip last week! Our classes were so supportive and worked wonderful in teams together. It was fun to see them encourage and cheer each other on as they climbed the rock wall, paddled in kayaks and rode through the mountain bike course. I tried to get as many photos of the different activities and areas as I could so please check out the photo page to see some of them! I was so pleased that the rain held out long enough for the groups to complete each area.
Mrs. Peeters' homeroom should have received an e-mail about our upcoming conferences, Mrs. Umberger's homeroom should expect one mid-week. (If you didn't get the invite, please e-mail me and I can resend it).
This week we will be continuing to work on double-digit addition and subtraction with borrowing and carrying. Last week we practiced working on the expanded notation, standard and word form of numbers up to the thousands. There are some student examples on the wall outside of Mrs. Peeters' and Mrs. Jackson's classroom.
Reminders: Don't forget that next Monday, October 20th and Tuesday, October 21st there is no school for students due to teacher planning and assessment days.
Have a great week!
Last week we started 'Math Buddies' with Mrs. Johnson's 5th graders! I got photos of my homeroom with their buddies, but my phone died before the second group so I'll make sure to get photos of them with their buddies at our next meeting! We will be meeting with them once or twice a month to do some fun math work or science experiments. We also took our first Math Interim standardized test.
This week in math we will be working on place value. This is especially important when adding and subtracting with 2 and 3 digit numbers. We will also be learning about expanded notation (300+20+5=325).
In science we are continuing to learn about earth materials and sorting rocks by property. We will also be learning about different landforms such as plateau, mountains, islands, plains, etc. Our unit will begin wrapping up next week.
Thank you to everyone who came to the fun run! It was a huge success and I am so grateful to be part of such a supportive community.
Reminders: Don't forget that we have our Avid4Adventure day coming up this Thursday, October 9th! Students should dress appropriately for outdoor activities and bring a sack lunch and sunscreen.
There is a Direct Giving Party on Saturday, October 11th @ 7pm. There is more information in your child's homework folder.
