Things are going quite well so far. One of the things we are working on is knowing when to talk and when not to talk. Getting better but still working on this. We really are becoming more self aware of when to talk and when to not talk.
Math: Our class average for our basic facts is 42 this week, same as last weeks. Ask your student about their average. I challenged each student to be at an average of 30 problems per minute or better by Christmas break.
Reading: reading notes are due on Monday. We have had a good discussion of the 24 book challenge in class. The third book of the third quarter is due on the 31st of January.
Science: We are beginning a study of the earth's surface. Students have an Earth model project due on the 1st of February.
Social studies: Students will be working out of a book titled America’s Story. They will have approximately 2 lessons per week. Most of this could be done in school. If not it will be sent home. We are starting our study of the states. Students have a study guide for a states test. The test is on Wednesday. No school on March 8th and 9th.
