# Update:

Reading assessments will most likely take all week. So please expect your students to come home with books to read starting on Monday. If we finish assessments sooner I will be sure to update the blog.

Please expect your students to come home today with their graded Module 2 Math Tests and Select Comprehension Reading tests. Their math tests will have answer corrections on them. Overall, I am very happy with how the students did during this module and on the test. They really enjoyed measuring using meter sticks and centimeter rulers.

Tomorrow we will begin Module 3 which focuses on skip counting by 5s, 10s and 100s, understanding the value of tens ones and hundreds and reading and writing numbers up to 1,000 in expanded form, number names and base-ten numerals. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions (:

# Class Prize Update:

Today the students earned a show and tell class prize for being such a terrific and dedicated class. Students are encouraged to come to school tomorrow with a show and tell. A show and tell can consist of a favorite toy, drawing, story or creation that they are proud of. Please inform students that they are not to bring anything that is offensive or inappropriate to school. This is optional, so if you and/or the student do not wish to participate they do not have to. I am telling students that this show and tell is only to be taken out of their backpack during the show and tell allotted time. They are not allowed to take out their show and tell during any other part of the day due to distractions. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call or email me. I look forward to seeing what they decide to bring.
