This week we will be learning more about the Common Needs of People and focusing in on shelter and transportation for our cultural studies. In math we are working on multiplication, division, and fractions. The first graders are working hard on their basic math facts, including multiplication, addition, and subtraction. Second and third grade have been plugging away at multi-digit multiplication, division, and have started working with fractions with like denominators.
Beginning this Monday, Mr.Horning will be taking the kids outside on Monday's from 10:25-11:25 for cross-country skiing. This will take place this week and the two following weeks after conference week. Please make sure that your student has all of their outdoor gear. They should have their snow pants, hats, gloves, boots, and warm winter jacket each day for not only gym but also for recess and in case of emergencies.
If you are interested in having access to Keyboarding Without Tears for your 2nd or 3rd grader, please send me an email. I can send you a direct link in order for them to practice their keyboarding skills at home.
If you are not receiving the mass text messages that I occasionally send out for reminders or check-in's and you would like to be, please send me an email. I can invite you to join our group. This is a free service and allows me to text everyone that has subscribed at once with important information.
With Valentine's Day being this coming weekend, we will be doing a special activity for our families. We will not be having a classroom party but you may send in cards or special treats to share with the other students to exchange at the end of the day on Friday. If you plan on sending in cards, please send cards for all 22 students.
**I will be absent Tuesday, February 17th.
