Movie on Friday

This quarter we surpassed our goal of beginning with the end in mind and had ourselves a little popsicle party that happen coincide with my birthday last week. Great timing, don't you think!? Well, we set a smaller goal to synergize these last couple weeks to have a movie and snack party for the last day of school. We are 4 fish away from reaching our goal and I think we can do it! In order to be proactive, there will be a sheet that will go home asking for your permission to watch the movie Epic. Your child will only need to return the sheet if you do NOT want them to watch it. If you see this and do not see the sheet of paper in your child's backpack by tomorrow and you do not want them to watch the movie, then please email me at lchatterton@wcpss.net.

If you would like to provide a peanut-free snack for our class on the last day then that would be wonderful!

Thank you!

Quarter 4, Week 4

Well hello!

I sent a note home on Thursday asking for your child to memorize their address. Many of them came to me with their address and some already knew theirs! How exciting! Many of our friends have discovered Google Earth on our student computers. They love exploring our world and seeing where they live. Google Earth helps students understand their location on Earth, especially when it can be such an abstract concept. 

Reusable containers- We talked about recycling and our life cycle unit is coming up! What better way to integrate the two by reusing containers and discovering the plant life cycle!

Math- We are starting a unit on partitioning-whole, halves, thirds, fourths. 

Reading- We are using schema folders to discover new topics! 

Social Studies- We are still reading and exploring maps.

Writing- We are starting our opinion writing pieces. 

Leadership Day is this Friday, May 16th! We have been working hard on our paragraphs of our goals and are creating boards to present to the people from the community who are attending the event. 

I am also starting a dot event in our classroom. Our school has been talking about not making reading only a seasonal sport and having it be important year round. Every time a student reads a book, they will write their name and the book and how many stars they would give it. If your child reads a book at home, this will also count. 

Here is an example of what our wall might look like:
