Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and had fun watching the super bowl! Check below for some important reminders:
The second Jekyll packet is due back by this Friday. Keep in mind the second payment was already due. Make sure to complete the insurance information as well as the medical form if your child takes any medications. If it is a prescription medication, the form must be signed by a doctor. The child's teacher leader will make sure they get their medication each day.
Pie Wars started last week and will last until Friday! I happily got pied in the face last year after raising the most money. All profits go to Relay for Life, an important organization in my life and many others. Please consider donating! I also keep track of how much money we raise as a class and that is how many laps I have to walk at the Relay for Life North Fulton event in May!
International day is this Wednesday. Students may wear traditional clothing of their heritage to share with their classmates. International day is filled with a parade as well as parent booths that teach students all about the different cultures of Dolvin.
Blue Math: We will be finishing up our unit on fractions. Students have learned how to multiply fractions and will learn how to divide fractions this week. They will also learn how to record data on a line plot and redistribute amounts evenly. Our test date for unit 4B will be February 8th.
Yellow Math: We are working on 6th grade unit 5. In this unit, students reviewed how to find the area of rectangles, squares, and parallelograms.They will also learned how to find the area of a triangle, kite, rhombus, and more. We also learned how to find the surface area of a 3D shape using its net. This week, we will review how to find the volume of a rectangular prism. Our test date for unit 5 will be February 8th.
Social Studies: We will be starting a new Social Studies unit on WWII. In this unit, students will learn about the causes of WWII, the leaders and important people who influenced WWII, important events of WWII, and how WWII came to an end. This unit is a very interesting unit to teach. It is also a very sad unit as we discuss the Holocaust which has effected many people. I expect students to be respectful and understand that it is our duty to learn about all of the hard times in history as well as the good times.
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
