Today with Mrs K….a weekly update on the happenings in Room 29

Today with Mrs. K…
Weekly edition for December 18th

We explored a story about a boy, Javier, who wants to build a bridge to get to his fort on an island. We learned about structures and forces upon those structures that a civil engineer must account for in making things stable and strong.
We have been slowly working our way through Avoca’s candyland game with activities for spreading cheer in collaborative ways. More fun in the week ahead as we mix in good deeds with our learning!

This week we will be working on:
Math: Multiplication and division models, properties, and practice. Begin fact fluency practice.
Reader’s Workshop: working in groups with individual strategy lessons
Words Their Way: no WTW this week — Avoca Candlyland writing and giving activities instead
Writer’s Workshop: We are learning structures and strategies to build our informational writing skills on our chosen topic.
Science: Building bridges
Social Studies: Assessment on Wed. of the New England states

Hello and welcome! I’m really looking forward to a great 2017-2018 school year! One of my goals is using technology for better communication of our school day with family and friends. This is a year long goal as I try out new tools and get to know what works best for both students and families. Soon links and pages will be added for you to explore. Please check back!
