Happy birthday Mrs. Melinda Santos! Our third grade students are lucky to have such a fantastic and dedicated teacher. Wishing you a wonderful birthday today!
Community building activities are fun and help instill cooperation and kindness in students. This week first graders created a “spider web” with yarn as they shared an appreciation to a classmate.
Math tip for the week: Bake Something Together You can’t help but use math when you’re baking. Doubling recipes requires multiplying, halving a recipe requires dividing, and measuring a ½ cup or a ¼ teaspoon gets you working with easy fractions. At a more basic level, kids love counting out chocolate chips. (And so do the parents; we speak from experience!) Ask your child: How many chocolate chips do you think it will take to fill one cup? How many for 1/2 cup? Count together and see how close you came to the right answer! Source: https://www.naeyc.org/
Today is the Great Nevada ShakeOut. At 10:21 a.m. classes practiced drop, cover, and hold on to protect themselves in the event of an earthquake. Great job students and teachers! #2021greatnevadashakeout #earthquakedrill
Reading tip for the week: Read a child’s favorite book over and over again. This will provide positive reinforcement and your child will gain confidence as they are able to successfully recognize words. Source: http://www.k12reader.com/
