Welcome to Kindergarten

Word Belt Wednesday

Word Belt Wednesday’s are going to start tomorrow. On Wednesday’s each child will be tested on their karate belt lists that are on the back of their folder. Just a reminder that they must be able to say the words out of order and within 3 seconds. They must also have their word belts on the back of their folders in order to get a new belt. I’m looking forward to giving out new word belts tomorrow!

Thank you for your continued support at home!

Week of November 11th…

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! Here are some ways, throughout the week, that we will be s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g and strengthening our brains in order to make them STRONGER!!!

Reading:  Today in reading, we did a Veterans Day reading comprehension activity to build our background knowledge about it. Ask your child what Veterans Day was originally called. Tuesday and Wednesday, we will be working on figuring out the steps to finding the main idea.  Thursday and Friday, we will identify the stated and implied main ideas of short paragraphs.

Spelling: Today, your child received his/her spelling homework packet. It is a review packet so there are four activity pages to complete instead of the standard three. Your child is aware of this. She/he also knows that the homework packet is due on Thursday and that our test is on Friday.

 Math: This week in math, we are picking up where we left off last week in unit 5. Monday, we worked on, and Tuesday we will practice single step along with multi-step word problems for adding and subtracting decimals. Wednesday we will review everything we have covered in unit 5, and Thursday we will have the test. Make sure to get those study guides done on Wednesday evening. Friday we will end the week with working on our next unit, which is multiplying and dividing decimal numbers. Keep up the hard work in math 5th grade!  

Reminders:

I don’t have any reminders to share with you this week.

Have a wonderful week, and thank you for your support!

Mrs. Eby 🙂

Nov. 11 news

It was really nice to meet everyone last week during conferences. It goes so fast! Thanks again for making time to come in and chat. Click on our newsletter to read about our week.

I have posted some pictures from our fun Pumpkin Investigation. We measured our pumpkins, weighed them, and counted the ribs and seeds. After all that, we noticed when pumpkins have more ribs on the outside, they usually have more seeds on the inside. We read that in a book and were curious if our pumpkins would prove it. Yes, they did! For every rib on the outside there should be a row of seeds on the inside. Interesting!

This was our wear Red Day the other week for keeping our bodies healthy. ( I tried to do a selfie)

Math: Subtraction with and without trading (regrouping)- short practice today. Please have your child show the number models.

Reading: It’s a choice night! The more we read, the better readers we become! Please spend time reading tonight! If your child has a sight word booklet- please have them read it up until the number he/she is on! If your child’s is labeled- “home practice” it means that he/she has mastered that set of words and will be given a new set. Practice with reading sight words is still of great benefit! It transfers into spelling these important words correctly in writing!

It was a true pleasure meeting with you last week! I love working with your children and had a lot fun sharing their progress with you!

Brrrrrrrr…..recess is cold these days! Please be sure your child comes to school ready to play outside during recess.

If your child is unable to tie his/her shoes, this is a good time to master that skill. Please help your child practice this very important life skill. Thank you!!

Keep working on those reading calendars! As a class we read well over 7,000 minutes in October! This is nearly 2,000 more minutes than in September! Wahoo….let’s keep this trend going!!
