September has been a very busy month. Routines are being established and we are working hard on all subjects. We have had the opportunity to watch seven Monarch caterpillars grow and transform into chrysalises. Four Monarchs have hatched and been released. Along the way students made observations, drawings and had good conversations related to this process.
Our new math program is off to a great start. We are learning many new strategies for solving equations and students are enjoying the hands on approach this curriculum offers. There are many opportunities to work in small groups, with partners and to present to the whole class. We held our first gallery walk and baseball forum.
Each week, I am sending home a newsletter with information about the math program, important dates, pictures and a quick overview of our week.
MAP testing will be completed by Friday, September 29th. We had to move two of our sessions due to technological issues. We also completed AIMsWeb testing this past week.
