Room 2 would like to congratulate Joe for being this week’s Star Student. Joe has been working hard to work up to his full potential. His efforts are greatly appreciated and have not gone unnoticed. Congratulations Joe and keep up the great work! Keep pushing yourself to accomplish great tasks.
Thank you for the Box Tops that have been coming in. We have a decent amount accumulated this month already. Please continue sending them in. It would be awesome to win the grand prize of a pizza party! In addition to earning a pizza party, all of our Box Tops will help the school financially. In the past, Box Top money has been used to purchase new books for the classroom or it has helped offset costs of programs for the students.
I am pleased that the class is really connecting with the word problem, Ninja T.I.P.S we have been learning. Please continue encouraging your student to use their T.I.P.S and to show their work when doing their homework. We will continue working on our word problem skills this week.
We also really need to continue working on using complete sentences and words from the question in our answers when we are responding to an open ended question. We have been working on it in class but I still get incomplete sentences all too often from students. It is important to answer in complete sentences with proper capitalization and punctuation. Students will be asked to redo their work if it is not handed in appropriately.
Thank you for your help and I look forward to seeing some of you on Friday for our trip.
