Archive for January, 2016
Welcome to 2016! This is always my favorite time during the school year. This chunk, January to March, is the longest uninterrupted time of the school year. This is when I see the most exciting gains in our kids. It is also a great time to check and restock school supplies. Please take a few minutes to check in with your student and make sure they have what they need, and that their binders are clean and organized.
Students are making the next rotation in their Language Arts and Math classes this week. The new math unit is fractions. The best way to help your student through this unit is to make they are confident with the multiplication table. This speeds up the reducing fractions and creating common denominators.
Finally, we have a field trip coming up in a few weeks. January 19th we travel to Science Works in Ashland. More to come on this trip soon!
Happy New Year!
