Another Friday has come and gone and already the first week in November is now a part of history. When I write this blog a week from now, we will (hopefully) have a new President Elect and all of the election-related drama will be behind us.
This was a short week since Monday, Halloween, was also a teacher workday. That means that parent-teacher conferences are now behind us and I would like to thank everyone who took the time to come out to the school, morning or afternoon, to meet with me!
Next week our school is participating in a canned food drive up until the 18th. We are also in a friendly competition with River Gate Elementary and Lake Wylie Elementary to see which school can collect the most canned goods to give to those who are less fortunate. No matter what, everyone wins so I am excited about this!
The weekly parent email has been sent out. If you would like to be added to my email distribution list, just send me an email and I will be happy to do so! I don't share any details of individual students in my class so I don't mind who sees me weekly parent emails - the more, the merrier!
In literacy, the students reviewed for the next Caesar's English quiz Monday. It was for today but with students being pulled out during literacy, it wasn't practical. This way, students will get an extra day.
In math, we are in day two of long division and next week I will likely cover short division as an option for those who have mastered long division and would like to try to use it. Multiplication and division will be the topic for the rest of this month. December will incorporate all four of the operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing) when we cover area and perimeter of polygonal figures (closed).
The students also took the weekly warm-up quiz.
In science, the students did another STEMscopes activity. Next week, even though it has only three days of school in it, will have experiments to reinforce the content taught so far on rocks and the rock cycle.
