With the anticipated snowstorm tomorrow (and possibly Wednesday), I have sent home Homework:
– Math Unit 1 Lesson 1 – Number Patterns and Pattern Rules (page 2 & 3). Attached to this is our Text Book Practice (page 8). The students and I have worked together on page 8 and completed the first 4 questions, but I would like them to complete these independently, to get the ball rolling for the following questions.
– Possessive or Plural worksheet.
– Read 20 minutes
The students have been working hard on their iMovie trailers. Students are encouraged to bring in any non-valuable props for their own projects this week as we will be finishing up over the next few days.
5B is designating a full day to creating our Nubia triptychs next week. This is a 3 paneled project. Last year, some families provided panels from cardboard boxes (no smaller than a cereal box and I can cut the boxes if you like). I have some boxes at home that I can use and I can go to the LC and grocery store for more if need be. We are finding that actual cereal boxes are too weak for a base and just going with the panels as bases. Your child should also have a list of materials to contribute to their group of 3. I am encouraging them to use items and materials from around home but some have purchased from the Dollar Store (trees, animals, popsicle sticks, toothpicks, clay, rocks, jewels etc.). I can provide paint, cotton balls, tissue paper and aluminum foil.
In Writing, students are learning how to create an Explanatory report and will use the Nubia project to create a paper, slideshow or poster (bristol board).
Book orders are due Friday, February 13th
We are continuing to take a break for Word Work so we can fit in our iMovie projects and our Nubia projects. I will let you know when we resume a “normal” schedule.
On a side note, I’m really enjoying my time with 5B. They continue to be a wonderful group to work with. The students often get comments from other teachers and parents about how well behaved and respectful they are as a group outside of the classroom as well. Thanks for all your support! 🙂
