The holidays seemed to be good for everyone in room 210. The students got right back into the swing of things and were reading better than ever!
There are a few new items to note.
1. Students who arrive after 9:00 a.m. must get a tardy pass from the security guard at the front door.
2. Students are picked up from the playground at 8:55 and may grab a sack breakfast on the way to our classroom.
3. There is no school on Monday, January 16 for MLK day and no school on Friday, January 27 for teacher meetings.
What we’re working on.
MATH – Fractions and decimals as parts of a whole. Decimal place value is big(th) – TENTHS, HUNDREDTHS, THOUSANDTHS.
WRITING – We discussed personal goals for 2012 and filled in a graphic organizer. The students will write a three-paragraph essay focusing on a main idea and supporting details in each paragraph
SOCIAL STUDIES – Continued study of communities. The new skill underway is RESEARCH! Students will learn how to find good sources to answer questions and find information.
