Where Did Oct. Go? Wow, where has the time gone? Time seems to fly by quicker than a witch on a broomstick! Oct. has been very busy in room 14. During our ELA block we've been busy working on our first fiction story of the year. These stories are a reflection of the students' independent efforts and work. We learned about self editing and editing for a friend but other than that I did not help the children. We've had a few authors share already. The children are very proud of their stories. The students have been working on their Treat Bag Book Reports at home and last week we transformed a paper pumpkin into the main character of the book. We had a chance on Friday to begin sharing some of our reports. The children are very well prepared! In Math we started exploring the concept of Expanded Notation and Place Value. We also practiced addition facts with a fun activity using dice. I hope the childern enjoyed this different way of practicing facts. I cannot stress enough how important it is that they have all of the addition facts mastered very soon. Many students are still working on facts that should just be a review from last year. If your child is still working on 1 and 2s facts, please spend additional time practicing math facts. In Science we've been learning about Bats! Bats are very helpful mammals. We had a chance to do a little research about bats using our school's new ipad cart. That was exciting. On Tuesday we had our first ever MAC assembly program. (Make A Change)we celebrated the word Pride. Our new character education word is Respect. My class and I have been spending quite a bit of time discussing how important respect is both to have and to give. We've talked about what it looks like,sounds like and how to earn it. We talked about how self-respect is very important to begin with. We are focusing on our listening skills and showing that we are listening by giving eye contact,not fidgeting and really listening to the words a person is saying. We are going to continue to stress our good manners as a way to show respect. We have one student in our class that was voted on by more than half of his classmates as being a role model for what respect means! B.L. was our first name to be honored as our class MAC for Respect. Congratulations BL, that means a lot to be voted on by your peers. This week will be eventful with Halloween tomorrow. Fortunately we didn't get the huge snowstorm this weekend!
Have a great week ahead and keep you eye on the blog for Halloween photos after our party and parade. I'll try to post them tomorrow night.
