Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Edwards
A special thanks to parents who have contributed to the store so far.  I really want to continue this, because every child seems to find interest in it and they look forward to it every Friday evening.  It also helps with their academic abilities when it comes to counting money.

MATHEMATICS
Monday: Students began going over fractions (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/6, and 1/8)  They started identifying them by being able to write them when I asked to show me what they were (example: when I asked what three-fifths was, they knew to write 3/5).  Students broke off in groups to work on identifying fractions together.

Tuesday: Students used dry erase boards to show they understood how to write a fraction from a picture.  They worked as tables to use connecting cubes to show me fractions from different colors.  They were asked to give fractions for each color of connecting cube they had, compared to the amount they had total.  I was very happy with the results of this.  Good job guys!!!

​Wednesday: ​Students began understanding where fractions (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/6, & 1/8) would be on a number line between 0 and 1.  Parents, if you can, please work with your child on this.  I feel this may be one of the more difficult things they are going to do in my class.  It confuses them, but I know they will get it before we are done going over them. 


SCIENCE
Ms. Baker's class is in Science this week.  They are learning the three categories of rock: Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic.
Igneous: Rock formed from lava that has hardened in time.
Sedimentary: Rock formed from a combination of sand, soil, plants, etc. that has taken thousands of years to mold together.
Metamorphic: Rock formed from a sedimentary rock by magma under the earth, and pressure.
