Good morning, families. I have to be out this afternoon because of a family injury, and possibly out on Tuesday. On a more positive note, we are still on track to use the VR headset for our reading classes on Wednesday, and we will be joined by the school superintendent and our new principal, Ms. Bostian.
This week we reviewed place value and expanded form in fourth grade math, operations and properties of multiplication in fifth grade math, idioms and vocabulary in word study and practiced our letter-writing to the people who were affected by Hurricane Irma. On Fridays, we will be doing a current events lesson that ties into a writing assignment, so don't be surprised if your child comes home talking about world events! Also, please remember that there is no school on Thursday, September 21 in observance of Rosh Hashanah.
What a fantastic week we had in the LLD room! We are still getting through some of our "beginning of the year" activities, but we will be settling in with our regular routine even more next week. Some of our activities this week included: brain training (from the Dyslexia Institute), autobiographical posters, introducing idioms, vocabulary (with a focus on root words), Crashbox (a game show for kids that works on cognitive skills), Story Grammar Marker, and writing about science. I look forward to our first full week next week!
