I hope you all enjoyed the 3 day weekend, I know that I did! This week, we have been working hard to finish our first Trimester strong! This Friday (11/13) marks the end of Trimester 1. (Can you believe that?!)
This week, we have been learning about Veteran’s Day and discussing the history behind it. We also looked at some pretty adorable “homecoming” pictures of soldiers reuniting with their families and loved ones. The students really enjoyed making predictions and observations about the photos before I showed them the captions. It was a great way to see all the great things your students know about veterans and how well they can make inferences from a simple picture.
Thank you to all that returned Parent-Teacher Conference Forms. You will be receiving information about when your conference(s) will take place in the Thursday folder. I look forward to meeting with everyone!!
I made cookies for the kiddos this week just because I like them so much. Many asked for the recipe, so I told them I would post the link for the Confetti Cake Batter Cookies here 🙂 I invite you to take this opportunity to bake with your children, discussing Math (fractions, measurement) as well as Science… cookies are just like ROCKS! They are made up of different ingredients (or minerals) and each one is unique.
This week we have shifted our Math focus to addition and subtraction of multi digit numbers. We have also been working hard to complete our “4 Regions of Washington” foldable. So many students are working hard to produce their best work! I can’t wait to see the finished products.
Thanks for sharing your amazing kiddos with me at school. I am so lucky 🙂
