What's Going On In Room 102?
We have flown into February already! We have a busy month with the Book Fair and after school workshops. Please continue to have your kiddos arrive on time each day so that they can complete their math and editing review questions before we go to specials. They are doing an amazing job at asking questions when they need a refresher on skills, and they have taken ownership of their learning.
In Math this week, the student will take their Chapter 10 Math Test on Friday. After that, we will begin Chapter 11 on more Geometry. Please continue to have your children study their vocabulary words for these chapters. Memorizing them will help with deeper questions in math as well as prepare them for fifth grade. We will have a vocabulary quiz on words 1-30 this Wednesday.
During Language Arts, the students will continue work in centers to sharpen and tune their writing skills in both Opinion and Expository Essays. I met with most of the class last week in a mini-conference in order to review their latest writing pieces. They now have individualized goals for their essays in order to earn the most points possible in their writing. I have seen so much growth with your little ones, and I am proud of their dedication to becoming the best writers they can be.
During Science, we will begin to learn about Earth's place in space. The students will perform a hands-on activity about the moon, earth, and sun. We will also create our own pictures of the moon phases. Each day we kick-off the lesson with our "Moon Phases Song". They love it (and so do I), so I am attaching the link for your to view at home if desired. https://youtu.be/HkvlrWpsnuQ All of the Interactive Lessons for this chapter are available on Think Central for viewing at home, as well.
Our Book Fair is February 8-12th. Please see the calendar below for more information. Also, the permission slips and payment of $15 are due on February 19th. There will be no late exceptions. We will have the drawing for the chaperones on February 20th. Please be sure you have a volunteer application on file before this day in order to qualify for the drawing.
Make it a great week!
