The Leader In Me
This week we worked on our very own leadership newspaper. The students talked about what they are leaders in outside of school. Here's what some students said:
"I'm a leader of a lot of things at my house, but the most important thing is to feed my male beta, and his name is Swimmy." -Zachary
"I'm a leader of helping my sister clean my room." -Josephine
"I'm a leader of climbing." -Draven
"I'm a leader of my sister because I need to always help her and keep her safe." -Peyton
This week in math we began learning about repeated addition with more than two addends. Repeated addition is an addition sentence in which the addends are repeated. For example: 4+4+4=12. The students were so excited to learn that repeated addition helps us with multiplication. Many of them were able to use a repeated addition sentence to create a multiplication problem. Continuing to practice math facts at home will help the students answer repeated addition sentences efficiently.
Parent-Teacher Conferences will be here before we know it! Several parents still have not signed up, so if you're one of those parents, please follow the link below to sign up for a time to come talk about your student's progress and see some of their work. I will be sending out reminders of your conference time when the dates get closer.
