Our field trip Tuesday was a great success! We had so much fun and learned all kinds of things about birds and animals that live in the river. Thanks again to our great chaperones!
In we have been rounding numbers and talking about the water cycle this week. We did a fun experiment yesterday with the water cycle in a big bottle. See if your student can describe to you all the parts of the water cycle we saw.
We started doing small groups in reading this week. Ask your student about the book they are reading, they are doing some fun ones this time. ;) Also, watch for a drop in reading participation scores that may be a hint your child needs to work on focusing and completing their work during class instead of wasting time or getting distracted. Please let me know if they share ideas with you on what they might need to focus more.
This next week is the PTA’s No TV week. Return the weeks log on Monday, October 5th.
I hope you all noticed the page that came home describing how to create a parent account that gives you access to important information about your child’s XtraMath progress. For a sample of the information you receive with a free parent account see the picture on our class website under Homework. Students MUST use the student account created for them by me this year so that I have access to their practice and progress information.
