Famous Person Projects
The students are off to a great start, finding out lots of facts about their person. This week we will start assembling our "Scrap Books". It should be a fun way for the students to think about these important historical figures. You will, hopefully, find that the students' main take away from the unit is that many of the people who did the most important things in history persevered through difficulties in life. We will also be working in class to write scripts for our video next week. Remember, students should come in costume on February 5th. Let me know if you need help or costume ideas.
Math - Subtraction with Regrouping
Students are doing a great job Subtracting with Regrouping. Have you students talk you through a couple of their homework problems this week. Make sure they are understanding the steps. Have your child show you the Subtraction with Regrouping Brainpop video. You will have to use the link on my website.
Child of the World
The big show is Thursday Night at 5:00. Please have your child on the playground by 4:45. You might want to come early to get good seats. Students should wear their t-shirt and blue bottoms. Uniform bottoms are fine, but it could be others. If you get some good videos or pictures, send them my way.
Spelling and math this week. Have your child talk you through a couple of subtraction problems.

Famous Person Unit
Our famous person unit is off to a great start. The students have been assigned their person to study. This week we will begin gathering facts and learning about each person in class. Please try to spend a little time learning at home too. Check out some youtube videos or head to the library. Next week we will begin making a scrapbook of the life of the famous person. Thursday February 5 will be our film day. Students should come to school that day dressed as their famous person. If you need costume ideas, let me know.
Child Of The World
Our big production will be January 29 at 5:00. You won't want to miss out. The students are doing great. It should be an entertaining show. If for some reason you are not able to come that night, please let us know ahead of time so we can get each speaking part covered. The students should wear their matching shirts and blue pants/ skirts.
Only math this week. Any one math activity can be replaced with 20 minutes of Moby Max. Just do 20 minutes of Moby Max, write Moby Max on the top of the assignment and then don't do the assignment. Only can be used once.
Have a great short week! Email if you have any questions.
