Child of the World
Thanks to all who came out to support the students. They felt like stars! It is a pleasure to work with such amazing families.
Famous Person Project
We are well under way on our research projects in class. The students completed the Life History portion of their scrap book last week and will continue working this week to learn about each person's Claim to Fame and Contributions to Society. Due to my absence today we are behind in our video production portion of the project. I will have to change the filming date to next Tuesday, February 10th. Please have students come that day dressed as their famous person. We will be writing short skits this week in which two people who never met, will get the chance to meet and talk about their lives. I have high hopes. We will see what we can pull off.
We should finish our current chapter on Subtraction with Regrouping this week and then move into bigger numbers. If your student has been doing well so far, then they are on pace for mathematics success in the future. Students will become masters at adding and subtracting numbers this year.
