Birthday -Thanks for the Birthday wishes. I enjoyed the cards, cake, balloons, and cookies! I even had a “duty free” lunch to celebrate! You all made my birthday very special. It was fun to have someone excited about my birthday. I know the kids sang “Happy Birthday” every time someone new mentioned it was my birthday! They even got to guess how old I am. Yes, I am somewhere between the guesses of 39 and 87. Really??? What a fun day!
Boosterthon – We are fired up for Boosterthon. Great pledges have been coming in! Our class has exceeded $40/lap. They have earned extra recess, popsicles, a pop-corn party, “sock day”, and we are close to getting a game day! Great job getting pledges. The run is Wednesday, March 19. We are excited and looking forward to a fun day.
Kona Ice is Friday, March 21. It is $3.00
Spring Break – We will be off the week of March 24 – 28. I hope you all enjoy some warm weather – finally! When we come back, it will be April! Remember to keep reading and studying x facts. Reading Logs and Math Calendars will be due on March 31.
Science and Social Studies – We have finished our study on the Human Body, and we are studying about Space and “patterns in the sky” for Science before Spring Break. We will get to experience “Star Lab” when we return March 31. We will start a new unit on Rocks and Minerals in April, and visit DeSoto Caverns in May. We are also finishing a government study before Spring Break, and starting a unit on Alabama when we return.
Math – We are finishing our unit on fractions. Keep reviewing equivalent fractions. We are starting a unit on Measurement, but will continue practicing x facts. Every student has a code to practice on xtramath.org at home. Please use this free resource.
