Hello 217!

Homework and 3D Shape Project

Our photocopier works again! The students have received homework for tonight but were told to only do PW 89 on Lesson 17.5 because we have not covered Lesson 17.6. We are moving VERY fast in math and I am glad they are all keeping up with the work.

They have also received the 3D shape nets to create their projects. They will need:

- 1 clothes hanger – string – scissors – glue – tape – coloring supplies

The students need to color the shapes and then cut them out to create the 3D shape with the net. They will attach the figure to a string and attach the string to a clothes hanger. Each shape must be labeled with the appropriate name. I will give points for neatness, coloring, labeling, and overall effort put into the project. I understand that it is difficult to bring them on the bus but please do your best so that they don’t get wrinkled and I can hang them up in our classroom.

Good luck!

Homework Updates

This week we are doing a science experiment and we were able to go to the lab on Friday. Therefore, the science homework has been changed for Friday.

Today we took the MAP test and therefore were not able to get to the math lesson about weights. The students will not have math homework tonight because I did not teach the material.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions!

Upcoming Field Trips

I’m sure your children have told you all about the Ringling Bros. Boss Clown debate that was held at Disney on 10/24. The kids had a blast! You can watch the debate on the Ringling website at www.ringling.com. Our school was also featured on ABC 7 News. Click here for the article and video.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey have provided free tickets to the November 15, 2012 show to all third and fourth graders. They are also paying for the transportation. All children will be required to bring a field trip slip to attend this free field trip. It should be a lot of fun!

This upcoming Wednesday, 10/31, we are invited to attend the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival at the Music Box Theatre. We are watching Tales with Tails. The trip costs $6. Please send the money by Monday so that I know how many students are attending.
