TGIF...IMPORTANT math assessment information

This morning in math we began preparing for the unit 3 assessment by completing a review packet. We will go over and correct each item in the packet on Tuesday. Then the students will be expected to study for the assessment, using the review packet, Tuesday night. We will begin taking the assessment on Wednesday.

The students seem to have a good handle on the concepts BUT there is a great NEED for students to memorize the basic multiplication facts. PLEASE have your child use the flashcards or one of the web sites on this blog to memorize the facts!!

Thanks to Mrs. J, we were able to begin reading by looking at different types of travel brochures. We noticed and discussed the organization, the sentence structure and other aspects that were similar and different to the ones we are creating in class.

While I continued conferencing with individual students on their mock MSA BCRs, the students worked on completing unfinished work and their travel brochures.

Following lunch and outdoor recess the children went to music. Then, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, we briefly discussed his impact on the Civil Rights Movement and began watching a movie about Ruby Bridges, the first African American to integrate an all white school.
