Weekly Overview January 29, 2018

Wow-Can’t believe how January flew by for me in the classroom!

A reminder that this Thursday is Raise your Glass!!!

Also, no school for students this Friday-it’s a professional development day.

Thanks for the few snacks coming in, but still need more-we try and have snack every day!!  Many thanks!!!

***Tonight, your child will have a packet about their Black History Month project.  Please help them decide who they want to do their project on, they should write the name on the last (back) sheet, you should sign, so I know  you are aware of this, and return the packet.  We will note who you and your child choose, then the whole packet will go home again!  You will keep and use as a helpful guide:).  The written assignment and poster is due February 16th.  You and your child have three weeks to work on it!!  Do about a paragraph or two a week and that will spread the research and project out nicely!!  I will also be sending home a guideline for the presentation soon.  Each child will have a few minute talk about their project.  Take a few days to think about it with your child and return by this Wednesday.

Have fun and thanks!!  These will all be displayed for our Gallery walk on February 21st, a Wednesday.

Language Arts:  We will be spending this week on reading and writing about African-Americans we should know and why we should know them.

Homework:  We will not have the typical writing assignment that is due each Thursday.  Just work on the Black History Month Project.  You can have your child bring in, each Thursday, what they have work on so far, if you/your child would like.

Math:  We will complete lessons 5.7 through 5.10 this week.  These lessons focus on subtraction, counting up and down on a number line and number stories.

Homework:  Your child will have Homelinks Monday through Wednesday.  On Thursday, I will give your child a number facts packet that they can work Thursday evening or Friday.  It does not need to be returned.  Thanks

Social Studies:  We will focus on Black History Month and do some research on People we should know and your child will have time to do some research and take what they learn home, to incorporate into their project.

Science:  We will work with soil, sand and silt and see how size influences the path of water.

Have a nice week!

Sincerely, Jean Clement
