Calling all STATES!

Each day this week, students may bring a state quarter. We will be marking off each state on a map to see how many can be represented! Hmmm…maybe we’ll tally them also to see which states get represented the most! πŸ§πŸ€‘ Students only need to bring it in to be tallied and then they may take their quarter(s) back home. Have fun investigating money at home!! 😊

Reminder…sneakers and library books due today!

Break My Heart and Cupid’s Arrows

Here are a few highlights from this week…

Valentine’s Day was full of smiles, candy but even better…gratitude! “Thank you___!” was heard 26x times 26. My heart was full seeing them open and appreciate each and every Valentine. Then, they played a little game called Cupid’s Arrows and took aim at heart targets.

In math, each student had a turn to BREAK MY HEART!! (I was very dramatic about it LOL!) They each broke open a cup on my heart poster and pulled out a coin combination. Then they chose friends to “be the coins” and counted up their card amount. It was topped off by choosing a prize!

Show Me the Money!!πŸ’°

Money lessons AT HOME! The snow days are delaying the start of one of my favorite math chapters…MONEY! We will jump right into multi 3 coin counting! But, I also like to teach the kids about the coins…who and what is on the coin? It ties in perfectly with President’s Day coming up as well!

So….here’s some home math …if you choose to accept πŸ˜‰ Bring in 1 of each coin! In a baggy bring a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter! (half dollar if you have one) Challenge #2… name the presidents on each coin. Please write down the names on piece of paper. You can also find and share any fun fact about a coin. I love those fun facts!

These are all optional, but to recap, children may do the following to earn up to 3 gold tickets at the start of tomorrow:

1) Bring in a baggy with 4 coins

2) Bring a paper with the names of the coin presidents

3) Weekend reading title with parent initials (as always weekend reading earns a ticket)

FYI- there will be REAL coins available for any students who are not able or forget coins from home so don’t sweat this optional homework. Looking forward to seeing the kids… and all that money tomorrow!!! πŸ’°β€

Shadows

Well, the groundhog may not have seen his shadow but we did today!! We traced AM shadows and PM shadows. Ask what we learned about shadows? Why do we have nighttime? Why is the AM shadow longer??
