This week we will be learning about sound! We will do several experiements to learn to "see" sound! Your children will be using vocabulary words such as volume, vibrations, and pitch to explain the concept of sound.
During writing time, we will write sound poems!
Your children are becoming proficient in their math facts. Each day we practice our facts through Xtra Math. The kids are increasing their fact fluency. The focus of this program is to solve the fact within 2-3 seconds of seeing it. They are making big gains.
This week, the homework will be to play a Math Facts Game with your child. The Game is "Beat the Calculator", and the directions will come home on Monday. You will need a calculator or a calculator app for this game, and your child will bring home an envelope of Fact Triangles. All of the materials will stay at home, and you will not need to hand in anything on Wednesday. I hope you enjoy playing this game with your child! We've enjoyed playing here at school, and they will be excited to share it with you.
On Friday, our class and our buddy class will participate in an Earth Day Clean Up activity. Please have your child dress for the outdoors. Gloves and tools will be provided.
Friday is also a school-wide spirit day. Kids are encouraged to dress a bit crazy...mismatched socks, crazy hair, a wacky outfit...
Report cards went home on Friday. Please sign and return the envelope.
Families, you have some very amazing kids. They are learning and growing daily! They are so very proud of their growth, and their teacher is proud of them too!
