Math- We are working on solving word problems. Students will have test on Friday. When students are working on their homework, I would like for them to use the CUBES strategy.
C- Circle (Numbers & number words)
U-Underline (the problem)
B-Box (the key words)
E-Evaulate (Sovle 1._______ 2________)
Students should also keep working on their multiplication facts for their weekly timed test!
Reading & Writing- We are finishing and presenting our biographies! I am so excited to hear what the students have learned! We are also finishing up learning about suffixes and prefixes and starting to learn about cause and effect. Students will have a test on cause and effect on Friday.
Social Studies- This week we will wrap up our unit on Susan B. Anthony, Fredrick Douglass. and Paul Revere. Students will have a test on Wednesday (a study guide will be sent home on Monday).
At Addison we take Attendance seriously.
The classroom in each grade level that has the best percent attendance will be recognized with playground equipment. The classroom winners will be recognized during announcements. The winners will also be displayed on the cafeteria bulletin board. In addition, we will also recognize classrooms that have had the best overall attendance during a 9 week grading period. The students in these classrooms will receive a Partners in Ed. treat from Mr. Cohen.
Our class won the attendance award in 3rd grade for the month of November and we chose bubbles to play with on the playground! We are so proud! Keep up the great attendance!
Remember that students can dress up on these days:
Tuesday 12/13: Wear Red Day!
Thursday 12/15: Holiday Headgear!
Friday 12/16: Grinch Day! Wear Green!
Monday 12/19: Sparkly Headgear!
Tuesday 12/20: Holiday Footwear! (socks or shoes)
Wednesday 12/21: Comfy Flannel Day! Wear a flannel or comfy PJs!
I will be out of the building on Wednesday for my graduation (yay!), so if you need anything before then, please let me know!
I have taught for 6 years and joined the Addison family in January of last year. I was so excited to return to the school I attended for 4th and 5th grade.
