I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break! I enjoyed spending time with my kids and family. We stayed busy with fun activities and are ready for the holidays! It’s hard to believe we have 3 short weeks left before Winter Break. We will have LOTS going on so make sure to check my BLOG each week for updates and events.
Dec. 2 – Dec. 10–Giving Bags: MBES community outreach tradition. Many families attending our sister schools rely heavily on school provided breakfast and lunch, and when schools break for holidays. these families lack the food and necessities needed on a daily basis. During the December 10 TPV, each classroom will prepare a Giving Bag complete with such necessities. Our hope is 100% child participation and we need your help to do it.

What We Are Learning….
Math–For the remainder of this 9 weeks we are focusing on division and 1-step multiplication/division word problems. For fact fluency this week we will have a quiz of the facts we have already learned (0, 1, 2, 5, 10). Next 9 weeks we will focus on multiplication facts for 3, 6, 9–these are much harder!
Reading-Finishing cause/effect and moving into autobiographies for the end of the 9 weeks. Please make sure that you are completing the Reading Log in the back of your child’s binder. They are responsible for recording the minutes and what they read, but please help them add total minutes and sign at the end of each month. Your child will earn $20 in Gorman bucks for the completed logs.
Social Studies- Native American tribes. Studying the different tribes (Artic, Northwestern, Northeastern, South Eastern, Plains, South Western) and looking at the differences in clothing, shelter, and food.
Grammar- subject/verb agreement
Voyage Trait of the Month: KINDNESS
Kindness is caring about the well-being of others around you. Our first action point is KINDNESS IS UNDERSTANDING THE FEELINGS OF OTHERS. We will focus on this in our classroom this week and talk about the word EMPATHY. This is such an important trait, behavior, quality to possess and emulate towards others. Our classroom motto is BE KIND, we talk about this on a daily basis.
Hope everyone has a great week!
