This Wednesday, our students will perform "Go Fish" from 6:00pm-7:00pm. Students should come to Room 11 at 5:45pm to change into their costumes. Parents may go directly to the Multi-Use Room/Cafeteria to reserve their seats. There will be a check-in table when you first arrive. A program guide and DVD copy of the play will be waiting for you.
In language arts, we will read a realistic fiction story called "Thunder Cakes". This story is about a little girl who is afraid of thunder storms. Grandma decides to make a cake to distract the child and also help her relax by counting 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9, meaning the storm is 9 miles away. Meanwhile, grandma and child gathered all the ingredients and began making the cake. When the thundercake was done, so was the storm. They celebrated by having a delicious cake to eat. This story will help our students make judgments and well as follow direction. The spelling this week will feature base words ending in -ed and -ing and words with silent consonants -gh, -kn, and -b.
In math, we will review telling time to the nearest minute. Please have your child practice their basic math facts nightly using Mathzor.com. Many of our students have already mastered their addition and subtraction facts and are learning multiplication and division.
Our classroom has a Donor's Choose request for chromebooks. For a limited time, Google is matching donations dollar for dollar. It is my hope to obtain enough chromebooks for each student. If you would like to make a donation to our classroom, please go to www.DonorsChoose.org, type in "Mt. Diablo Elementary School", and then look for "Mrs. Pike".
