Classroom News

 

For the week of Feb 3-7

In Reading, these mystery readers have been exploring "How Mysteries Go". They have worked with small groups, partners and independently to generate theories and interview each other to uncover the genre of Mysteries. Ask your reader what they are finding out about mysteries!

 

In Writing, the Mover and Shaker research is nearing completion and children are creating a product (brochure or small poster or biography) to convey their information.

 

Keep an eye out for monsters in the hallway! These children are working on scenes that portray monsters "using their voices" to change the world.

 

Caron's Mathematicians:

Inches, Feet, Yards, estimating, measuring. It has been a busy week in math class. After the Unit 4 Post Assessment, we will take a little side tour next week to study another unit of measurement - TIME. Look for measurement work to come home and Unit 4 assessment results. As always, please take some time to look at your student's work and let them explain it to you!

Requests/Donations

Many teachers at Lincoln are trying to figure out how to navigate Valentines' Day. We celebrate kindness and community every day. We want to be sure that celebrations are inclusive and not a burden on any families (buying and/or making Valentines can be burdensome) . I have decided to not do a Valentine exchange in our classroom. The most equitable way seems to be to offer materials at school for children to make their own cards for whomever they wish, any day of the year. Also, Friday is Early Release with Assembly (focus on Kindness), Buddy Time (kindness), Math and that's it!  Please let me know your thoughts regarding this decision.

Love, Caron
