This week in...
Math- We will continue learning more about fractions! We are going to focus on equivalent fractions and placing fractions on a number line.
Pizza Fraction projects are due this Friday (1/20)! Students will present their projects to the class and solve the word problems that their peers created. The projects that have come in so far look great (and so yummy).
Reading- Last week we started reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio to get the students engaged in learning about point of view. So far the students love the book! We will keep reading together and practice identifying POV.
Writing- In writing we are talking about how to properly use commas in address, or in dialogue. We will have a quiz on Friday.
Social Studies- We will keep learning about each branch of the government and what they do.
*This Thursday we will be having a special science lab that involves going outside! It looks like it may be wet outside so please send students with a jacket or rain coat.
*Students have NEW spelling homework! Students should complete one of the activities from the Choice Board each night.
A note from Foundation:
The Spring semester is here and that means lots of fun events from Addison Foundation to keep your kids happy and the Science Lab going!
Penny Wars runs January 17 - 27th with the final chance to take place at the Winter Wonderland Ball the evening of the 27th. Send your children in with pennies for their grade and silver and dollars to sabotage the other grades. Pennies are GOOD, the rest is BAD because they're what subtracts from that grade's pennies! The kids can drop them in the buckets each morning before school! They LOVE Penny Wars!!
The first ever Winter Wonderland Ball for girls in grades K - 5 to dance the night away with their dad, grandpa, uncle, or favorite father figure is taking place January 27th from 6-9pm.
The next teacher auction items are coming too! Bidding is now open - Monday, February 6th from 2:30 - 4 is the After School Art Class with Miss Stoddard! And taking place on Friday, February 10th from 6-8pm, a Girls' Night Out Shenanigans After School with Mrs. Hallmark!! Check out the experiences and get more information at www.biddingowl.com/addisonelementary. If any questions, reach out to Laura Glancy, President at firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, details can be found on the Foundation website at www.foundation4addison.org. Thank you for supporting our Foundation's work to give us the Science Lab and other wonderful things!
