Hello Families of 4W,
What a wacky week of wild winter weather! I hope that all of your families were able to stay safe during the stormy weather and were able to spend some extra time enjoying one another this week! Let’s hope that the coming week is a little less wild and a lot more predictable in terms of weather!
This past week we enjoyed some hands on projects, including a delicious math lesson that connected adding, subtracting, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, measurement, conversions and profit concepts to their use in the real world. Mrs. Hemenway brought in cookies and the recipe to share. We turned it into a great life lesson on how math matters outside of school. Thanks so much for the yummy cookies!
Make your moments count,
I am a confident learner.
Wacky weather prevented a full blown kickoff to Fractions, but next week we will be in full swing with identifying fractions and naming equivalent fractions. Please be on the lookout for fractions in your daily life.
Today groups presented their topics on Landform: formation and changes. Great work teams! You were able to teach us so much! Next week we will move on to Social Studies and take a look at our state government.
Words will continue as normal this week! Continue to practice at home.
Please 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. This rotation will conclude before February vacation.
Seeing the world from another person’s point of view is a topic of conversation that continues to come up as we read and discuss the story Wonder. The book is written in parts, and each part retells events in the story and carries the plot on into new events in order to share a different perspective from another character. It is important to consider what it is like to walk in someone else’s shoes and offer support instead of judgement. Great conversations are being had with these kind kids!
Be on the lookout for opinion pieces being written up, distributed and further explored next week. Students will be collecting ideas for topics they wish to write about.
