I have set the students up on our Think Central Site to have them access math practice at home. I encourage everyone to work on their math at home if you can. We will also have access at school during math time. However, as you know, practice helps everyone to make more brain connections and understand the math better!
Here is the Student Quick Start Guide for you to get started:
Students do not need to wear uniforms tomorrow because of picture day. They will need to send in payment or pay online for any pictures before they get the pictures taken. We sent home the fundraising packets today. Please take a look in their backpacks.
I am excited to have my new students with me this year. We have successfully completed our first week. We are excited about our new learning and want to share it with our parents and family. I hope that all parents will try to make it to our Back to School Night this Wed. , August 5th at 5:30. We will be working closely with our families this year to ensure success. This will be a great way to kick everything off with a bang! See you then.
I’ve added Typing Ghosts to our Apps in Edmodo. Students please go in and try it out! I will be adding some flash cards to our Flash Card game as well. Hope everyone is having a great vacation!
We have been celebrating reading and Dr. Seuss this week. Thursday , March 5th is crazy pajama day. On Friday students are encouraged to come as their favorite book character. We will also have a special reader come to visit our class and we will attend the annual Cat in the Hat Reader’s Theater assembly. The more that you read, the more that things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. -Dr. Seuss
The students earned a free night from homework. Although some students need to study for spelling! Check their practice test to see if they need to study.
Parents you can watch a very good place value video to help explain the concept. The “place” is where the digit is found ( hundreds/tens/ones). In the number 573 the 7 is in the tens place. Value is how much the digit is worth in a particular place. For example the value of the 7 in 573 is 70. The expanded form video can also help understand this concept. Expanded form is the sum of the values – 573 expanded is 500+70+3. Hope this helps!
