I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Hopefully most of the ice is melted. My driveway is almost back to normal.
We will be doing Unit 3-Week 5 in Wonders this week. The spelling words are posted on the spelling word page. In math, we will be finishing up chapter 4 and continuing to work on area and perimeter. The kids should be studying their multiplication facts at home a little each night. We have lots of tools to help us with them in class.
In Social Studies, we have been talking about the three branches of government and learning about other communities in the United States. We have also learned how to use a map scale.
It is almost time to start planning the Valentine's Party. The kids should be preparing a box at home for their Valentines. They can decorate it anyway they want to. I will talk to the kids and see what they would like for the party.
For our read aloud series, we are reading "Wayside School". Ask the kids to tell you about it. We just finished Matilda. The kids may be considering that for their reward movie.
Report cards will be coming home on Friday the 2nd of February. I am very proud of this class and their accomplishments. Radsox are the best!!!
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!
