Recess Fun

When it isn’t freezing cold in January and you took two tests in one day, you go outside for an extra recess! Work hard & play hard!

These girls found a dandelion and told me that they “found summer”. 🙂

Week 22

Math – This past week we continued exploring fractions. We learned how to determine if fractions are equivalent. Next week we will compare fractions and take our Chapter 10 test. In Spring Math we are working on subtracting 3-digit numbers. Any extra practice with this at home would be awesome!

ELA – We are in the second half of Stone Fox. It is almost race day! We can’t wait to find out what happens when we continue reading next week. This week we also talked about idioms…we had a ball! 🙂

The kids loved working in teams to match idioms with their actual meaning.

Content – The kids are busy creating brochures about famous places around Lancaster County.

Information about our Who Am I? Poster Project was sent home. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.

Spelling – The Lesson 16 list was sent home today and will be tested on Friday.

Report Cards will come home on Monday. Please sign the envelope and return it to school with the parent comment sheet inside. The report card is yours to keep. I am very proud of the kids and how hard they are working this year. I am so thankful for all of the help that you provide at home.

Have a wonderful weekend!! – Mrs. Binkley

Week 21

Math – We are learning all about fractions! I have been so impressed with how quickly the kids picked up identifying fractions of a whole, fractions of a set, and fractions on a number line. Next week we will learn how to compare fractions and determine if fractions are equivalent.

ELA – We are in the middle of a whole class read aloud, Stone Fox. We have also been reading about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Content – We are wrapping up our unit on Lancaster County History and will begin our multicultural unit next week. Look for information to come home about our “Who Am I?”Posters.

Spelling – Lesson 15 is a review week. Lists were sent home today and will be tested next Friday.

When it is 60 degrees in January, you go outside for an extra recess!
