Dates to Remember
Week of Jan. 15 - 19
We will continue our review of Topic 8 Use Strategies and Properties to Add and Subtract on Tuesday. The Topic 8 test will be given on Wednesday. In the next topic, Topic 9, we will continue with addition and subtraction but we will take it into the 1000s!
Change in the Way Homework is Assigned
The change in the homework protocol has been a pretty easy transition from my end. The students are enjoying checking their homework each day and either giving themselves 100% or smileys or A+++++!!! If they made an error in their homework, it gives them a chance to rethink and ask questions. Thank you for helping them make the change. It is well worth it.
We will finish with Chapter 2 on Energy this week. We will be ending the chapter with Sound Energy and Electrical Energy. Remember for this chapter, I will continue to assess after each lesson with an open-book quiz.
General Wish List
If you are able to donate any of the following items for the classroom, it would be greatly appreciated!
*No. 2 pencils - the plain yellow, traditional pencils are the best. The decorative ones tend to clog the pencil sharpeners because of the outer coatings.
*Paper towels - Spills are continuing. Please check your child's water bottle to make sure the lid is secure and doesn't drip.
