Hello Families of 4W,
With vacation and snow days thrown in, it has been a wild, wintery mix-up in 4W. We have tried our best to maintain some “normalcy” here in 4W, but there have been some things that were put aside for a time. Ward Weekly is back on track and we are looking forward to spring on Tuesday, we hope!
It has been truly impressive to see how everyone has been working toward making the production of Mary Poppins a success! These are very talented children and they are surely going places! We are looking forward to more great performances this weekend! Thank you again for sharing such wonderful children with us!
Make your moments count,
I am stepping into my greatness!
We have been working hard on fractions and are focusing on fractions as parts of a whole, as well as identifying equivalent fractions. Today we did an activity on fractions of a nutritional diet following the guidelines of myplate.gov. Be on the lookout for colorful and nutritional fraction “plates” coming home today.
This week we talked about why government matters and how we are blessed to have a say through voting. Thank you to all of you who got out in the snow and voted on Tuesday! Next week we will look at levels and branches of government.
Words will continue as normal this coming week! Continue to practice at home. Thank you for your flexibility with the two week, word list due to snow.
TEAM time round 3 started this week as we focus in on multi-step word problems in math.
We have been working hard at discussing the author’s purpose as they write their books. Consider asking questions about your child’s reading that makes them use evidence from the book to support their thinking. Or, tie their reading to an experience from their life or yours.
These writers are working hard to finish up their opinions, start new ones, and continue working on some incredible “green belt” writing. Interested? Ask what green belt means.
