There will be a Dress Down Day on Thursday, April 6th. There is a $2 donation. Also, food donations will be accepted April 3rd – April 6th. Nonperishable foods are being collected for the Fishkill Food Pantry. What a wonderful way to help those less fortunate.
We are finishing up the 3rd quarter this week. We are just a few lessons away from completing Module 4 in Math. We will finish up after Easter Break. A review sheet will go home after the break. In class, we are trying a new technique of Must Do, Can Do and Wow. After the lesson, the students are assigned certain problems to complete as Must Do. Everyone must complete these. If they complete those while there is still time they move on to the Can Do and Wow if time allows and they feel confident to complete them independently. The assignment is given 10-15 to complete. This seems to be working well for the students. It takes away some of the pressure to complete the whole page. Many of the students are completing the whole page anyway to WOW the teachers.
I am looking forward to seeing all the timelines from our biography book reports. The children have been very excited to discuss who they read about and what they learned about the person. I love their enthusiasm to learn new things and be fact finding detectives. The spelling words this week will be compound words. We will be breaking the words apart and putting them back together to practice the sound spellings.
Just a reminder the field trip money and permission slip is due by Thursday, April 6th.
I wish everyone a blessed Easter.
