Kindergarten with Mrs. Kinser

Weekly News: January 23-27

Happenings this week:

Wednesday: Gym…sometimes our gym time will be in our classroom. This week is one of them. Sneakers are preferred, but if they do not wear sneakers, they will still be able to participate.

Friday: Rock Show…we will finish our unit on rocks and the students will be able to bring in a rock from their home. Maybe it’s something they found on vacation, or in your driveway that morning. You may want to put a piece of masking tape with their name on the rock.

Sight words: This past week we worked on the words Where and Do. This week we will focus on Look, You, and And.

Letters: We will continue working on handwriting and letters.

Writing: We will finish a Non-Fiction/Fiction unit. We are filling in booklets about the books, “Bear Snores On,” and this week will focus on “Grizzly Bears.” We will compare the books and learn more about non-fiction and fiction.

Social Studies/Science: Penguins have been our theme last week and we will finish our penguin booklets this week.

Math: It’s time for Addition and Subtraction!! Chapter 4 was all about grouping and breaking apart numbers. Now we add the math language of addition, subtraction, and equals. Most of the students have already picked up on this and did very well on their report card testing.

100th Day: Still time to sign up for a little treat for us to count out. Thank you to those that have already signed up. If you’d like to send your donation in this week you certainly can do that. 🙂

http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0d4fa9a9238-100th

Stickers: If you have extra stickers that you would like to donate to the class I could use them on their reading folders. Thank you!!

Funwork: This still seems to be a good motivator for students. I try to give two math, and two language arts funwork. Many students wanted one for Friday too, so I do have optional Funwork Friday. This is all optional, but if you would like me to encourage your student to take one, just email me and I’ll see they get a copy. 🙂

As always, I love hearing from you with any questions, concerns, or comment. Email me at connie.kinser@pennmanor.net

Mrs. Devenburgh's First Grade

January 23

Snowball Fight Fundraiser– From January 23rd-January 27th Central Manor is going to have a snowball fight! Grade levels will compete with one another to try to cover the classroom doors with snowballs. Students can buy a small snowball for 10 cents, and a large snowball for 25 cents. Students will put the snowball on another classroom’s door. The grade level with the least amount of snowballs will earn extra recess. All of the money raised will go towards the Water for Sudan fundraiser project.

Math Facts- Please continue to practice the addition and subtraction flash cards at home. Students will start taking timed tests for a math grade this marking period. Students can also practice online at Xtramath.org. The website is free. You can create your own account or you can use the account I set up for the classroom.

Early Dismissal- Please make this change on your calendars.  The May 19th 1:30 PM EARLY DISMISSAL has been moved to May 12th, 2017.

Text Updates- If you would like to receive text updates text @cmcomm to the number 81010. You will get a text if the school has a two-hour delay or closes due to weather.

100th Day– January 31st will be our 100th day of school (pending any snow days). I will be sending home more information next week.

  •  Special 100th Day Assignment: Students may bring in a collection of 100 items that fit in a zip-loc or brown paper bag. All items should be the same. Some ideas include: cotton balls, pennies, legos, cars, paper clips, candies, Q-Tips, marbles, etc. We will measure, sort, and explore these collections.
  •  Dress Like You Are 100: To celebrate our 100 days in school, students may dress up like they are 100 years old. This is not required but it is encouraged. Students have had such a fun time doing this in the past! Some ideas for girls include: printed skirts, pearls, eyeglasses, sweater, wig or curled hairstyle, gray hair, cane, etc. Some ideas for boys include: button down shirt, flannel shirt, suspenders, tie, eyeglasses, mustache, cane, etc.

Valentine’s Day- We will be having an optional valentine exchange in class on February 14th. As a reminder, we have a student with a peanut allergy in class. Please make sure any food/candy valentines are peanut free & tree nut free. Thank you for helping to make our valentine exchange safe for everyone.

Last week, we turned into pirates to practice our spelling words with the ar sound. We went on a pirate treasure hunt around the school looking for gold coins with ar words. After searching all over the school, we found a treasure chest with some yummy gold.

Mrs. Binkley's Third Grade Thoughts

Week 20

Our Week

Math – We spent the week exploring fractions. The third graders learned how to represent part of a whole and part of a set. We also discovered that you can represent fractions on a number line. We will continue our exploration of fractions this coming week.

Reading – This week we had a lot of fun with author’s purpose. We also read a story about how animals and insects use a hole in a tree. During Lesson 15, we will practice making inferences, which can be a tricky skill for third graders.

Content – We wrapped up our Lancaster County History unit this past week. The students created brochures about several different famous locations around Lancaster.

Spelling – The Lesson 15 list was sent home on Friday.

On Friday, we had Amish Day in 3rd grade. At the beginning of the day, the students picked an Amish name and chose a grade level (grade 1-grade 8). We then turned off the lights and had our very own one-room school house. In the afternoon, we made our own Amish quilt and snacked on traditional Amish food. It was an awesome day!

Ask Your Child

What do you call the number on the top of a fraction? What about the number on the bottom of a fraction?

Our Week Ahead

Tuesday – Spelling Homework is due

Friday – Spelling Test, Report Cards come home

Looking Ahead

February 14 – Valentine’s Day Party

February 17 – No School (Snow Make-Up Day)

February 20 – No School

February 22 – Kids at Work Day

What are we learning this week?

English Language Arts (ELA):

Our 4W scholars will be spending this week learning all about figurative language (words or expressions with a meaning that is different from the literal interpretation).  Like, why is it a good thing to be as happy as a lark, but not okay to be in the doghouse?  OR why is it a hyperbole when the kids tell me in January that, “It’s so HOT outside Mrs. Wiggins!”  With all that being said,  I hope the sun dances in the sky this week and it does not rain cats and dogs!  I look forward to our unit on figurative language!

Math:

Chapter 8 math tests will be coming home on Monday.  Test corrections are due Wednesday.  We’ll continue to learn more about fractions throughout chapter 9 as we add and subtract fractions, investigate mixed numbers and more!

Science:

We will be heading into our Physics unit soon!  This unit will have us learning about energy, magnets and electricity.  We will begin with a review of atoms!

Social Studies:

We will be wrapping up our map and geography skills this week.  Please look in your child’s homework folder this week for their study guide, and their planner for their test date as the test will probably fall early next week.

Sixth Grade Scoop

Reading

In Mrs. Johnson’s class, last week we were working on lesson 13.  We read a section from Escaping the Giant Wave, a dramatic story about a brother and sister who survive a tsunami and try to reunite with their parents.  The focus skill for this lesson was learning to recognize the theme of a literary work.  This week we were working on lesson 14.   We read a short excerpt from Brian’s Winter by Gary Paulsen.  While reading, students responded to questions that require fact recall (“right there” and “think and search” questions) and inferencing questions (“author and you” and “on your own” questions).   At the end of the story, we spent time identifying and analyzing the features of theme conveyed through characters, actions, and setting.  The lesson 14 quiz (comprehension, focus skill, and vocab) is scheduled for Monday.  Please encourage your child to study their vocab cards and re-read the main text selection Brian’s Winter to ensure they are well prepared for this assessment.

Additionally, in preparation for the state assessments, we have been spending time talking about how to decipher the meaning of a TDA (Text Dependent Analysis) and learning strategies for how to provide an appropriate written response.  The students have been doing an awesome job learning to tackle this challenging component of the ELA assessment!  I’m extremely proud of their efforts and all the progress they have been making.  In the near future, students will be independently completing a TDA (as an assessment) that corresponds to Brian’s Winter.

In Mrs. Mitchell’s class, last week, we worked on lesson 14.   We read a short excerpt from Brian’s Winter by Gary Paulsen.  While reading, students were responding to questions that require fact recall (“right there” and “think and search” questions) and inferencing questions (“author and you” and “on your own” questions).   At the end of the story, we spent time identifying and analyzing the features of theme conveyed through characters, actions, and setting.  The theme vocab quiz is on Monday.  Students should be studying the vocab terms for the last four lessons.

Students also completed a project where each partnership chose a children’s book and decided on a theme for that book.  Then, they were asked to create a CD cover and a playlist that represents the theme.  Projects will be shared on Monday.

**The Book It! reading program continues.  Remember that your child is strongly encouraged to read 20 days in January for a minimum of 20 minutes each day.  A packet of calendars was made available to interested students.  Parents, please sign each day your child reads.  If your child chooses to participate in this incentive program, the completed calendar may be submitted at the end of the month and your child will receive a “reward” for their efforts (i.e. Pizza Hut coupon, coupon for a ‘free’ snack item at the Letort Café, or a “Homework Pass”).  Happy reading!

Math

We completed chapter 7, which focused on writing and solving algebraic equations.  Students learned how to use the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division properties of equality to find the value of a given variable.  Students also learned how to write and solve algebraic equations for a given word problem.

We are currently working on chapter 8, which focuses on functions and inequalities.  Students are learning how to represent functions in a table, on a graph, and as an equation.  They also will learn how to write, graph, and solve inequalities.

Just a reminder that there are many resources available online that correspond with the math curriculum.  Your child is aware of these resources and knows how to access them using their username and password.  We encourage you and your child to take advantage of these online supports.  Additionally, the math text contains numerous step-by-step examples related to the focus concept and should serve as an excellent resource for you and your child when completing daily homework assignments as well as when preparing for end-of-chapter assessments.

Science

We are continuing with the chemistry unit.  We learned about boiling points, freezing points, and melting points, and discovered through lab experiments that not all matter boil/freeze/melt at the same temperature.  We are currently learning about pure substances (i.e. elements and compounds) and mixtures (homogeneous and heterogeneous) and the characteristics of each.  A quiz is scheduled for next week; encourage your child to study the information from the Study Guide for 10-15 minutes each night in preparation for this assessment.

Social Studies

Students read through Special Field Order 15 which described how the government helped the freed slaves develop a new life.  We then walked in the footsteps of Tunis Campbell who was a preacher who helped to organize the community for the freed slaves.  Finally, we learned about the terms carpetbagger and scalawag.

Writing/English

In Mrs. Mitchell’s class, students completed the revisions for their informational piece and will be inserting them next week.   We learned a lot about verbs during the past two weeks and then completed a quiz to mark the halfway point in the unit.  Additionally, we continue to work on Daily Language Review each week to practice grammar skills.

In Mrs. Johnson’s class, we are still working on the informational essays.  We discussed different ways to capture the reader’s attention in the introduction paragraph.   We then moved on to revising the rough draft; students highlighted three areas in their essay where they felt they needed to add additional examples, explanations, and/or details to improve the content of their essay.  Next week, students will be working on writing their final rough draft.  Ask your child to share with you what they have accomplished so far.   Additionally, we continue to work on Daily Language Review each week to practice grammar skills.

Homework Blog-Post

As we continue to work toward preparing students for the transition to middle school, in the third marking period more focus will be put on students developing greater independence. Students will be encouraged to continue to use the planner to keep track of daily assignments and long-term projects, but there will be few reminders from the teacher, and beginning February 1, daily homework blog-posts will desist. Your continued home support is important for your child’s educational success; we encourage you to check the planner and homework each night as well as periodically check your child’s academic progress on Sapphire.

*Testing for report cards is just about done and we are hoping to resume a more normal routine with our reading groups. You should soon see new books coming home in your child’s reading folder! Report cards will be distributed on Friday, January 27th. You can keep the report, but please sign the envelope and return it to school so I can use it again at the end of the school year. Thanks so much!

**Please see below for a “wow” moment for Central Manor kindergarten kiddos posted by Mrs. Kinser! Our class read the poem and did the crayons as well!

Thank yous and Tweets

Last week we focused our social studies lessons on Martin Luther King, Jr. We paired those lessons with a poem, “The Crayon Box That Talked” to show students how Martin Luther King, Jr. wanted all of us to get along, no matter what we look like. We made self portraits on crayons and put them in a huge crayon box. Mr. Malek saw our Kindergarten Colors Together project and snapped a picture and tweeted his pictures. Our picture was “liked” by the Department of Education. WOW!!! And here it is!!

Grade-Three Families,

Today we rotated through stations in each third-grade classroom to play games to review fractions. The students had a given number of attempts at each game, which was represented by the denominator. After playing the game, the students’ numerator represented the number of successful attempts for the game. Did your mathematician have any games where the equivalent fraction was one whole?
Valentine’s Day
Each class will celebrate Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, February 14. Students do not have to bring in Valentines, but students that do bring in Valentines need to have one for each student in the class. Class lists will be distributed to the students.
Math – Chapter 10
We will culminate chapter 10 next week with lessons on fractions on a number line, equivalent fractions, fractions as one whole, and comparing fractions.
Please continue to review addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts from 0-12. The students were administered three, one-minute timed addition and subtraction math fact assessments for “Knows Basic Facts” on the report for the first two marking periods of the year. For the third marking period, a multiplication timed assessment on the facts 0, 1,2, and 5 is also administered.
Language Arts
Our focus during the review cycle is to review concepts from Theme 3 as well as concepts from earlier in the school year. We are also going to learn about figurative language and the central message of a selection.
Our lessons in grammar next will focus on comparing with adjectives using more and most, adverbs, and comparing with adverbs. The students are working hard in writing to apply our grammar lessons to their
Since we are in a review lesson, the students are not administered a spelling test this cycle.

Timed Tests

We started with timed tests recently. Children will have one minute to complete as many addition problems as they can. When  a child gets 20 or more correct in one minute,  twice on a level, they move to the next level. If a child gets all 40 correct in one minute they automatically go on to the next level. (This is VERY hard to do!) If you want to practice at home you can use flashcards. Look at the problems on the timed test. You will see that there are actually very few facts, but they might be written 1+2 or as 2+1.  Each child only competes with him or herself.
