December 16, 2016


Greetings from Room 116!

Here are some of this week’s highlights:

ELA: We studied the long o (o/oa/ow) spelling pattern and continued to discuss possessives. In our reading groups, we focused on character analysis and plot development with our realistic fiction books.

Math: We worked on estimation while adding and subtracting multi-digit numbers using the traditional algorithm.

Science/SS: We learned more about food chains and added to our replica Wampanoag village.

Other: We spent more time coding games in Computers and enjoyed our final Calmer Choice sessions.

Please remember that the EHBi Holiday concert is on Wednesday, December 21st, at 10:00 am. Also, there is no school from Friday, December 23rd through Tuesday, January 3rd, due to the holiday break.

Best wishes to all for a wonderful vacation with family and friends!! See you on Wednesday, January 4th.

Greetings from Room 116!

What a whirlwind this week has been. We have been very busy, as you can see:

ELA: We studied the i/igh (long i sound) spelling pattern, and focused on grammar rules for possessive nouns. We also examined character development in our realistic fiction book groups.

Math: We learned about weight measurements (grams/kilograms) and liquid capacities (milliliters/liters).

Science/SS: We did a jigsaw reading of The True Book of the Wampanoags and created posters to teach others. We also added to our replica village.

Other: During Computers, we wrote codes to create LEGO game. We also practiced mindful movement during Calmer Choice.

We ended the week with a variety of holiday activities and class viewing of “Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer”!!

Best wishes for a wintry weekend
