Veteran Visitor

 On Veteran's Day we were so fortunate to have a Veteran visit us virtually.  Colonel Chris Naler joined our class virtually from Texas.  We were able to ask him lots of questions and he shared about his experiences while he served in the marines.  We were so fortunate to have him join us this year.

Chapter 7 Videos

Welcome back!

As we continue learning more in our math unit, I thought that it may be helpful to have a few videos as resources.  You can have your child watch these at home if they need further support with their homework or you can have them complete the problems and then see if they got the answers correct.  I listed the topics above to help you identify how they can help your child with homework.

Math- Chapter 6

Hi, Everyone!

I cannot believe we are already on chapter 6!  My the time has really flown quickly!  This chapter is all about learning and mastering multiplication.  Please be practicing multiplication at home.  This will be a great benefit to them during this unit and as we move on to our future units.  You can encourage your child to practice while in the car or playing games at home.  One game we did in class today is called rock and roll multiplication.  Your child rolls two dice and then multiplies it together.  This unit also does discuss basic division.  Here are some videos your child can watch to help them practice as well.

 Halloween was so much fun!  Although the rain was a challenge, we had a wonderful time at our indoor parade and party.  I want to thank all of the parents who donated items and/or their time to make this event such a success.  Here are some pictures of the fun we had that day.

Book Orders

I will be sending home book orders on Monday.  Ordering books is entirely optional.  If you are interested in ordering books, you can either order them online or send the order into class.  Book orders are due by Wednesday, October 13th.  Scholastic orders are taking a little longer to be delivered.  The last order took a little over three weeks to be delivered.

Weather and Climate

We will begin our first science unit of the year this week which is Weather and Climate.  We will begin by examining types of weather in various places and then learn how meteorologists collect data to help them identify and predict weather patterns.

Chapter 3

Your child will take the Chapter 3 test on Tuesday.  A review guide will come home on Monday.  You can help your child by reviewing it with him/her at home.  The review will give you an idea of the types of questions that your child may see on the assessment.  Not all questions will be covered on the review guide.  Chapter 4 videos will be posted on Wednesday on my blog.
