This week’s Star Student is Bethy. Bethy has been working extremely hard since the beginning of the year to earn the title of Star Student. She is quickly emerging as a leader within the classroom. Bethy participates in every lesson and gives every assignment her all. Congratulations Bethy, Room 2 is very proud of you!
The boys and girls are doing well with learning their multiplication facts. We will begin transitioning from multiplication to division this week. Many students have already figured out that multiplication and division are related and are figuring out the fact families. Please continue to help your child learn his/her math facts. In addition to teaching the methods behind multiplication and division and mad minutes, I have started allowing for almost daily flashcard practice time within the classroom.
I’d like to wish everyone a very happy and safe Thanksgiving break. There will not be any spelling or any other homework over the break. The boys and girls have been working extremely hard within the classroom so this break is time to spend with family and friends.
On a personal note, I am very excited to share that I found out Friday that I passed all of my exams and am now officially a fire fighter for the state of Connecticut! I hope to use this as a lesson to my students that they can accomplish anything that they put their mind to.
Thank you for your continued support. This really is an amazing class. The boys and girls impress me on a daily basis.
