I want to start off this blog thanking each of your families for the your generous Christmas Gifts. I am so very blessed to be able to work with this group of kiddos. It was so delightful to be given all of the wonderful home made gifts that I will cherish as well as the thoughtful gift cards. Mr. Gray and I will surely have many date nights to come. Your kindness is overwhelming and I am thankful for all of you!
Our classroom is full of rich dialogue as we are discussing the Civil Rights Movement this week and will discuss the Civil War next week. Students are looking at how our words and actions impact our community. We are discussing this question as we read biographies about people who have chosen to become leaders in fighting for the rights of others. If you would like, I am looking at having a movie night the week of January 16th. The movie I would like to watch with the students is the movie Lincoln. This would be the first time I would offer this to students and their families. The reason I would like to offer this is for students to be able to see the multiple perspectives of the Civil War and take place in dialogue with their classmates and parents in an informal school setting. If you are interested in watching this movie with your child at school, please complete this quick survey to determine a day and time. If you would like to watch the trailer or look at the IMDb Description, click this link.
We are continuing our research on uncommon animals. Students are excited about the diorama component of the project as they get to show case their animal's habitat and their research. There will be a letter coming home in the Tuesday folders describing the project and my expectations. In addition to the diorama, students will write a report and create a presentation here at school.
Divide an concur has been our theme for math the past 4 weeks. Students are well on their way to mastering the long-division algorithm. We will continue working with dividing the remainder of this week and the first part of next week with the test being Friday, January 12th.
1. Students need to show you how to solve the problem: 3,456 / 5.
