Room 214 Update

BIG thank you to all the parents who made it in this week for conferences! I appreciate you taking time from your day to discuss your child's progress.

In Math:
  • Started Topic 6: Mental Addition
  • Students mentally added multiples of 10 to a two-digit number
  • Practiced mentally adding a two-digit number and a one-digit number
  • Worked on adding two digit numbers to a two digit number using mental math
  • Next vocabulary: mental math, tens digit, next ten

In Writing:
We are almost done with our biography projects! Here is a peek at what our class book on Amelia Earhart looks like.  Below are a few examples of the individual projects.  We studied Jesse Owens, Marie Curie, Abraham Lincoln, and Clara Barton. They will be shared at our writing celebration in June!

In Science:
  • We started learning about the sun, moon, and earth! 
  • We read The Moon Book by Gail Gibbons and watched a fun Brainpop Jr. video

Long Term Moon Homework

  • Starting tomorrow (December 6th) students will be filling out a moon phase calendar each night before bed for the next month and completing a few questions at the end of the cycle.  If you have any questions, please let me know!

Our Elf, Candy Cane, came to visit this week! He loves watching our good behavior!

We are going on our field trip to the Discovery Museum in Acton next Friday, December 12th! We will be eating snack AND lunch in the classroom.  Students will not be able to purchase lunch in the cafeteria (we will not be returning until after lunch hours) and no peanuts/tree nuts. Our chaperones are Mr. Otis, Mrs, Alsukairy, and Mrs. McCorry. Thank you to all the parents who volunteered!
