Sept. 23-27

This week:

We will begin Habit #2- Begin With The End in Mind
· Plan ahead and set goals
· Do things that have meaning and make a difference
· Be an important part of the classroom and contribute to the schools mission and   vision
· Look for ways to be a good citizen

Monday:  Math test on Place Value  & Science test on Magnetism
                Begin reading groups.

On Friday we went to Greg Tang's Math Site.  We went to games and played funny numbers.  We also played Kakooma.  These games are very good to help with number sense.  If you can play these games at home they are not only fun-but they will also increase your number sense.

Try the multiplication Kakooma
I love Kakooma!!

Other games-funny numbers etc.

Remember to turn in your reading pages so you get credit for September!!

Honor Day

Last week we celebrated our first Honor Day!!  Students who had zero missing assignments for the last four weeks were able to participate in relay races and a snack!

the last hour of the day!!
