OCTOBER 2018!

            

Halloween Escape Room 2018!

   

LOVED ALL  THE TEAM WORK  THAT WAS GOING ON TODAY BETWEEN 3RD AND 4TH GRADE CLASSES!  STUDENTS USED SKILLS  AND COOPERATION WHILE TRYING TO ESCAPE THE  HAUNTED HALLOWEEN ROOM.   WHO GOT OUT ? WHO DIDN’T?  STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION!

         

Very proud of my First Years’ enthusiasm to reading our first novel read of the year together,  “The House With A Clock in It’s Walls”.  They were able to keep up with the readings both independently and whole group.  Students  were able to decipher some very difficult meanings within the reading and together have great discussions.  Students produced common core state standard writing such as opinion writing, informational text, research and mathematical concepts all modeled within the Anchor Text.  I am very proud of all my students for doing such a great job!

Our first years have been extremely busy these past few weeks.  They have been adjusting to routines and new responsibilities.  Currently our first years are busy creating a time machine and will choose a point in the past to go to  and describe .  Using their imagination and critical thinking skills our scholars will be able to meet with historical people and ask questions about the time period and events that have occurred.  I am very excited to understand more about their travels through time and the people they have met. I am sure their journey will be exciting for us all !

      In The Daily Prophet News…

First years, were very busy this week settling into their new houses and our daily routines most of them survived! We started reading our first book read, ” THE HOUSE WITH A  CLOCK IN IT’S WALLS” BY  JOHN BELLAIRS.  The students were very excited and deeply engrossed within the book’s first few pages!  It was all very exciting!

If possible read it together! The more the better! The memories will be worth it!

I would kindly ask all parents and care takers to PLEASE, STOP YOURSELF FROM SEEING THE MOVIE ,” THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS”!  before we are finished with the book. The class is currently reading the book together.  Watching  the movie as a class together  would make it much more rewarding for them.  We plan on seeing the movie either at the theatre or wait for the on-line release date.  Either way, the satisfaction of reading a book as a class  becomes a bonding moment for them.  

Math News…students are starting new unit in math, DIVISION .

In this unit your child will:
■ Interpret products of whole numbers. ■ Interpret quotients of whole numbers. ■ Multiply and divide within 100 to solve problems. ■ Find unknown numbers in multiplication or division equations. ■ Apply properties of operations to multiply and divide. ■ Find unknown factors to solve division problems.

Multiplying and dividing numbers are important skills for your child to master. Memorization of facts plays a crucial role in applying problem-solving skills, multiplying and dividing multi-digit numbers, and other Math concepts to come. Support your child by using the following Math Vocabulary: The terms factor and product relate to multiplication. Factors are numbers you multiply to get a product. 5 x 4 = 20.  The terms divide and quotient relate to division. You divide numbers to get a quotient. 20 / 5 =4 quotient. Every multiplication fact has a related division fact. A fact family has related multiplication and division facts. 4 X 7 = 28 and  28 /7 = 4  7 X4 = 28.

In this unit your child will:
■ Interpret products of whole numbers. ■ Interpret quotients of whole numbers. ■ Multiply and divide within 100 to solve problems. ■ Find unknown numbers in multiplication or division equations. ■ Apply properties of operations to multiply and divide. ■ Find unknown factors to solve division problems.

28 /4 = 7

Ways to Help Your Child
Flash cards (both print and digital) are a fun way for your child to practice related multiplication and division facts. Your child can create a set of flash cards using index cards, or you can download a flash card app that you can customize. Encourage your child to review the flash cards daily. Challenge your child to create a game using the flash cards at home.
