Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the parents who made it to conferences. I have a couple of families on vacation, but other than that, everyone made them. I love Spring conferences because we get to talk about the growth your child has made throughout the year. I know coming back to school was hard today, as we are used to having spring break start now. With that being said, we do have Spring Break from March 28th- April 7th. The temperatures should be warming up, and we should soon get to go outside for recesses. THANK GOODNESS :) Have a safe weekend families, and thank you for being so wonderful!
Junior Achievement is a wonderful program, and we are lucky to have Lori Susie from Sedona Staffing. This is a volunteer program, and intertwines in our Social Studies curriculum very well! Lori is filled with enthusiasm and the kids adore her. She brings the kids treats each week, and shares many personal stories. We love her!
Happy Snow Day, boys and girls! I have spent the day outside on the snowmobile and sledding with my 3 munchkins! I hope you've had fun as well :) This is just a friendly reminder that your, 'Pay it Forward' project is due on Friday. Remember.... think outside the box. How can you make an impact on someone or something with $2.00? I'm anxious to begin writing tomorrow about what I'm doing, I hope you are too!
I've never been more excited to kiss a nasty smelling pig than I was today! Our fourth graders scored 90% or higher on the Iowa Assessments as an entire fourth grade. My class personally had 99.0% proficiency in the areas of Math, Reading, and Science. Something to celebrate! :)
This Thursday evening from 6:00-7:00, Eagle Heights will be hosting a family literacy night. Many businesses and community members will be at Eagle Heights with some type of activity, "the mystery" to show their business, occupation, etc... On the stage at Eagle Heights, there will be many books on the different occupations for you and your family to enjoy! If you didn't bring back your slip, and can join us, please feel free to come!
I posted 4 new math videos under the 'math' tab. We're working on fractions in all 4 videos- and each of them are 'equal share' problems. Love the way each of the ways are different!
Boy oh boy has it been a crazy week, or what?!? I don't feel like we've had an ounce of routine and structure all week! Cross your fingers that next week will be better (and warmer).
In Math, we've started our fraction unit! We'll work on fractions for probably the next 2 months. On Monday, I'll be administering 'FAST' testing. I'll have Mrs. Huling in my classroom with the kids working on a brownie lesson for fractions.
We're continuing finding the theme in poetry. Yesterday, we read a collection of poems. Some were funny, some were short, some were confusing, some were just plain STRANGE! :)
The plant cells looked fantastic! They were all shared and graded prior to Christmas break. This week we started The Body Systems. We're starting off with the Nervous System.
Rumor has it that Iowa Assessment scores are in... I'll get them to you as soon as I get them in my hands!
Stay warm and contact me if you need anything at all!
Hello Families! I'm not even sure of the answer to my question posted... Where the heck did November go? I hope each of you had a fantastic Thanksgiving break, and are preparing for the Christmas season. Would you believe we only have 13 'school days' until Christmas vacation. That's crazy to me! There is SO MUCH to do :)
I wanted to thank you for taking the time to come visit with me during conferences. Our classroom had 100% attendance for conferences. Yeah! Thank you! If you ever have questions or concerns, don't be afraid to call or e-mail. I'm happy to talk with you!
