I hope everyone had a great weekend. We can now get back to a regular routine, hopefully. It would be nice to see some snow out on the playground so the kids can go sledding at recess. Maybe this week?
Please don't forget about the class basket. We have some really nice sports items already. Mrs. Jordan is taking care of that for us. Anything to do with New England Sports will be awesome. There is also a sign-up genius on line for the parents. Thank you.
We are back to Wonders spelling this week. We will begin Unit 3, week one. You can find the new words on our website.
We will be taking our unit 3 math assessment this week. We have reviewed all of the material and I am pretty sure that the kids are ready for it. Please have the kids keep practicing their multiplication facts at home. We will also start minute math this week. This is to reinforce the facts that the kids are working on. It is an independent math sheet where each student goes at their own pace. Once certain facts are passed a number of times, they move on to the next set of facts. The kids loved it last year. It goes all the way up to the 12s.
Our next community meeting will be on the 31st of January. Please encourage the kids to submit something. It can be music, dance, a homemade movie, a picture, or anything of that nature. It does not always need to be a writing piece.
Don't forget if you have any spare time in the morning, the kids would love some help editing their journals. Journal time is from 8:00 to 8:30.
Have a great week everyone.
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!
