Welcome back! I missed all those amazing kids in my class! I hope everyone had a magical winter break. Did Santa bring new headphones? Send them our way! We still need each child to have a set of headphones to use in class.
We are reviewing the rules, writing paragraphs, and we are working on the essential question, "What do we know about Earth and its neighbors?" This is a review of our science unit on space and we are working on summarizing by identifying the main idea and details. There are no spelling words this week, due to it being a 3-day week.
We have finished up our Zombie Elf math mystery! If your child did not finish Clues 1-5, it is homework. (Our one exception is our lovely student who was in India-she should finish Clues 4 and 5 only.) We are working on multiplying and dividing by 8 and 9 this week.
We are working on getting ready for our restaurant! We will hold our restaurant next Friday, January 11th. Be on the lookout from an email from our incredible class captain! In class, my students are designing place mats and menus, they will decide how much money each item should cost, and we will learn about how real restaurants work.
