This past week seemed to fly by (don't they all).  We finished EnVisions Topic 3: Subtraction Strategies.  We played a new game called "Circle and Stars" to teach arrays.  Arrays are just repeated addition and builds a foundation for multiplication. The students learned about folktales and sequencing.

Now that we have made it through the first month of school, Ms. Carey and I have really been able to get to know the students.  We have been concentrating on differentiating instruction.  That means we are doing our best to teach each child at their level and at their learning style. This day the picture was taken, Ms.

Today was picture day.  We all had our pictures taken.  If you didn't order pictures that is ok.  These pictures will go in the yearbook.  Also, retakes are in 3 weeks.  We worked in our reading groups and worked on leveled independent reading contracts.  We also worked on subtraction strategies that involved using fact families to make the connection of subtraction and addition.  Your child should have brought home a letter explaining a new website that will help the students with spelling and vocabulary.  If you have any questions please contact me.

Surprise Rain Storm

At the end of the day, we experienced a quick rainshower, our class was in Library with Mr. Duck and the lights went out for a quick second.

Mix 94.1 Helping At Risk Schools 9-19-2011

The radio station Mix 94.1 has put together an event at 4 valley Targets (one is the Target next to our school on Eastern and Silverado Ranch) to help collect items for schools that have students that need basic items to live and survive.  We have a few kiddos at our school that would benefit from donations.  The ultimate goal is to get businesses to adopt schools that are in desperate need.  Please take a look at this link for more information or contact me and I can give you as much info as I can.

Wish List

I stumbled upon a site where teachers can enter their "Wish Lists."  I know that many parents provided items in this list so please disregard if you were able to donate.  They call it a "Wish List" for a reason.

Sorry, we haven't blogged in a couple of days.

Here are a few updates;

We are still finishing up school/district/teacher needed assessments to help us teach your students the best we can.  Giving them takes time and so does grading them. We should have them all wrapped up by the end of next week.

We are still working on EnVisions Topic 2: Addition Strategies and should be finished by this Friday, concluding with their first "official" math test.
