Greetings!Hello Families of 4W,
We have been talking a lot about great habits and our goals since the start of this new year. Students have been working hard to get back into good routines and habits that help with their learning here at EKES.
Please feel free to talk to your child about some of the habits, routines, or goals that they have been working on. Also, please do ask them about some of the wonderful projects they are working on here in class.
Make your moments count,
I am a focused, learning machine.
MathBy the end of this week, students should feel comfortable doing double digit by double digit multiplication. Your child will move on to long division at some point this week!
ScienceThis week we will be working on a mystery island project where students must create a new island and design a map, naming and labeling all of its landforms.
WordsWith the snow day last week, we skipped a list and new lists will be given on Monday 1/22 and tested on 1/26.
TEAMPlease ask your child what they are doing in TEAM this week. Students across 3-5 are working in small groups on reading, writing, and math related goals.
ReadingAs we take that deep dive into the life of Auggie Pullman, this class continues to impress with their understanding of the world, their tolerance for the differences of others, and the celebration of the uniqueness of each individual. Well done parents! These are some truly inspiring children and I am pleased to learn among them.
WritingNon-fiction pieces of all sorts are taking shape in our class. We have aspiring chefs, athletes, scientists, musicians, world travelers, and historians. Most importantly, these kids are learners!
