Important dates this week: December 10th-Family Night at the Book Fair 4-7pm
Hello parents, The field trip went well. All students learned about the Mordecai family and the history of the city of Raleigh. This week students learned their 9's and 3's. Nest week students will focus on 4's and 6's so please study these multiplication facts. We also reviewed the NC Check-In test and focused on rounding quotients. Students will learn all multiplication facts through 12 and have an ice cream party to celebrate in January. A letter has been sent home with the details. During literacy instruction in EL students have begun a new unit on frogs. Together we learned how to write a pourquoi tale. A pourquoi tale is a fictional narrative that answers the question "why". It consists of a character, problem and solution with specific details in each part. The introduction includes characters and setting. The middle talks about the problem and how it is dealt with and the ending offers a solution and conclusion to the story to explain the "why". An example of this is type of story is "why the zebra has stripes". In social studies we have started a new unit called History and Culture. In this unit we will explore historically significant people and places within North Carolina. Finally, in science students are finishing up their unit about the human body, specifically bones and muscles.
