It is hard to believe that it is the last week of school before February vacation. I hope everyone has a great vacation. Safe travels if you are traveling somewhere.
In reading this week, we will be in Wonders-Unit 4 week 2. The new spelling words are posted on the spelling page. They are very tricky words this week.
In math, we will still continue with our fraction unit and concentrate on our multiplication facts. Some of us are getting very good and fast at our facts.
Tomorrow afternoon(Tuesday) we will be going on our walking field trip to the New Boston Historical Society. The kids are very excited about this. We will be going with our first grade reading buddies.
On Friday we will be watching our movie in class for a reward and for vacation. The kids are welcome to dress up for non-fiction day. That means they can dress up as a real character from history or modern day. We will be doing favorite book characters(fiction characters) in March.
We are working on our second formal writing piece of the year. This is our" opinion" writing piece. We have read different picture books with strong opinions and have discussed the rubric. We did one together, and now for stage 2. The kids will do one on their own and then it will be scored.
Have a good week.
Let the kids be kids. Every child has a strength. It is up to the teacher to find it or tap it so they can work to their highest potential. I tend to set the bar very high. Lifetime memories should be made in the classroom and at school. NBCS should be a place where kids enter happy and go home with a smile on their face. I want my kids getting up in the morning begging to go to school!
