The kids did a great job sharing their books today for Storybook Day! Their costumes and posters were terrific!
We have been learning about decimals in math. Our study of decimals includes:
- Representing decimal numbers (tenths & hundredths) using base ten blocks and money
- Writing decimal numbers in standard, word, and expanded form
- Comparing and ordering decimals through hundredths
- Relating decimals to fractions (tenths & hundredths)
- Determining decimals as points on a number line
- Adding & subtracting decimals (including money)
Here are some links that your child can use to practice decimal skills:
Sonic’s Limeades for Learning contest has begun! I have entered a project called Bouncy Bands for Bouncy Minds to try to obtain Bouncy Bands for the desks in my classroom! You may vote once per day from each email address that you have. I’m also collecting the code stickers that you get when you order something at any Sonic location. (Don’t be afraid to ask for extra! 🙂 ) Each code counts as 2 votes! You may enter the codes yourself, or you may send them my way and I’ll do all the work! Save those stickers and spread the word!! Click on the picture above to view and vote for my project!
Thursday, Oct. 4- Field trip to LeTourneau University’s Belcher Center to see the play. Busses will leave around 11:30 and should be back at school around 2:15. We will have lunch in the classroom before we leave, so students will need to bring a lunch & drink from home (or they may purchase one from the cafeteria). Students need to wear a WO shirt if possible.
Friday, Oct. 5- Early release at 1:15 for Homecoming. Pep Rally at 2:30 in the football stadium (weather permitting).
Saturday, Oct. 6- Homecoming parade at 10:00.
What a wonderful community of learners we have in our classroom this year! I’m so excited to help our students learn and grow.
I have registered our classroom on DonorsChoose.org, an amazing website where individuals can contribute to public schools. Throughout the year, I will post requests for resources on my classroom page, https://www.donorschoose.org/Stephanie.Hunter, that will help make your child’s time at school even more engaging, dynamic, and enriching.
My current project is called Bouncy Bands for Bouncy Minds! Below is a video that will show & tell you all about Bouncy Bands. Check it out and donate if you can! Thank you!!
