Picture Day this Thursday!
I couldn't help to make this cross reference when thinking of my beautifully mulleted third grade picture compared to these cuties now! Haha!
Here is the link to purchasing our class and/or individual pictures. Click here.
Since this seems to be such a hot topic and clearing the toilet paper isle out at City Market, I'd thought I'd jump on and discuss it as well. I saw this post that pretty much sums up my feelings.
All kidding aside, we are cracking down on disinfecting keyboards, pencils and all surfaces here at school. We're also placing importance on eating healthy, getting enough rest and hydration. These protocols are typically discussed this time of year regardless.
Our office secretary, Sandra will be preparing an online sign up for conferences which are on the evenings of Wednesday March 25 and Thursday March 26 as well as the morning of Friday March 27. There will be no students on that Friday.
Sandra should be sending the sign up out soon, but if these days/times don't work for you, please let me know and we will figure it out.
We will be assessing multiplication strategies and fractions introduction this week via our unit 5 test. I will be sharing the results and so much more with you at conferences.
Up next is unit 6 which is dedicated to more operations! For hot tips and cool tricks to help at home, check out our Unit 6 Family Letter here.
Reading and Writing:
We are continuing to plug away on our writing tasks. This week the focus is informative writing via learning about energy sources like fossil fuels and renewable energy. This mini unit is all about determining importance, taking notes, comparing and contrasting information from multiple sources, and generating original thought. Pretty sophisticated, huh?
How you can help at home:
You can talk with your child about what we're learning about. You can talk about how you compare and contrast information from multiple sources all the time such as when purchasing new skis, washing machines or my newest obsession, espresso machines!
That's all for now, Folks!
Thank you so much for all that you do!
