September 7, 2012

We had a great day today!  In math, we reviewed multiplication problems with equal groups, area, array, combinations, and comparisons by creating our own word problems!  Check out their work in the pictures below!  We were also inspired during Reading Workshop by several “Change the World” quotations today–one of my favorites from today’s lesson is at the bottom of this post.
As a reminder, please remember that we have changed the spelling/vocab. test times on Fridays, for those interested in volunteering.  It is now 10:30-11:15.  Please let me know if you have any questions!  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

*Math: No math homework on Fridays!  (But we did lesson 1-4 if you want to do it anyway!)
*Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!!  See the breakdown of what we do with reading logs below:

*5 days of signed reading = 5/5 points in SIS + 1 Ken Garff ticket (to win a bike, iPod shuffle, or scooter)
*7 days of signed reading = 7/5 points on SIS + 2 Ken Garff tickets
*less than 5 signed days: i.e. 3/5 days signed of reading = 3/5 points in SIS & 0 Ken Garff tickets
*NO days signed = lunch detention each day until the planner is signed.

Upcoming Events:
*Sat. Sep. 8: 2012 Walk Now for Autism Speaks.  Click here for Crystal Riddick’s page (our secretary), and click here for information on the walk.

*Thurs., Sep. 13: CRT Celebration Beach Party!  (Since we met our CRT goal last year, this is our celebration!)

*Sep. 25: Boxtops due
*Sep. 28: Boxtop Dress-down day

Be the change you wish to see in the world.
