Thank you for checking this blog. I will summarize what is happening in Room 210 for the week ahead. Please also look at other teachers’ blogs. You’ll see what’s going on in their classrooms and, many teachers have internet links which are good for both parents and kids.
This week in Math we continue to review number sense (place value, thinking about numbers and problem solving) and for a new activity – reading and writing NUMBER WORDS. With that skill, we will be writing short number stories and word problems.
Writing continues EVERYDAY! The goal is for the student to think in silence, put his/her thoughts down and GO BACK TO ORGANIZE, EDIT and REWRITE. The ability to communicate in writing will help them throughout school and jobs and life!
Finally, remember that Morning Fitness, from 8:45 to 9:15, is an important part of the academic day. It makes our brains ready to learn and it burns off a little physical energy before coming into the building to sit down. We expect them to participate fully. Please convey that message to your child.
Thanks, as always, for your support.
