Back To School Night

Back to School Night is TONIGHT at 7pm. I am looking forward to seeing you there!

In math we continued writing numbers in standard, expanded and word form but increased to 4 and 5 digits. While the students worked independently I met with two small groups. One worked on reading and writing 4 and 5 digit numbers in expanded notation. The other worked on identifying the value of a digit in a 4 or 5 digit number. The students need to complete their classwork for homework...some have one worksheet, some two!

After math, I continued my informal reading testing. The rest of the class worked with Mrs. Arul and Mrs. Hepner (the reading specialist) to make connections to text (and write about it!) using the book Ira Sleeps Over. Then they chose a topic and created a graphic organizer for their first personal narrative.

Following lunch and recess the students visited the media center. When they return to class, I will assign a written homework assignment. They will be writing a letter to me. There will NOT be a reading log assignment this evening...but I still encourage every student to read every night...regardless of whether they are required to mark it in their log!!

We will end the day by taking our own fingerprints, using pencils and tape, and identifying the patterns in our prints.
