December Awards

Welcome back!  It is so nice to see everyone again.

Pearson Math
This week we are starting back in math working with division with decimals.  Students are working on Topic Lesson 6.7 and will continue through lesson 6.9 this week. Then we will do our unit assessment.  Please help your child by going over division steps and talk through the word problems in the homework to help them think through the process and strengthen number sense.

Many students are still behind on their online work from before our break.  Please encourage your child to start the year getting all their work done on time.

Setting Goals
Today we talked about setting goals and taking small steps to measure our progress towards their goals.  I’ve shared the Dojo site with parents who are on Class Dojo.  Take a look at it and discuss with your child, to help them be more successful in accomplishing their goals.

Language Arts
Our class will be starting a research unit about some of the environmental factor affecting our world.  Students will be asked to research on line as well as to find books, articles, newspapers, etc. on their topic and focus.  Discussion at home can help your child think more deeply about their topic.  Encourage your child’s curiosity by taking them to the library and talking about things you watch together on the news.  This should be a fun and informative unit for them.

Free Performance in Old Town on January 6th
This Friday if you are looking for something fun for the family to do, come see me performing in Old Town at the Fiesta Del Reyes stage (that is the outdoor stage next to the Casa del Reyes restaurant) at 6:30pm and 7:30pm.  The show is called “Gold, Frankinscense and Myrh” and is about the Mexican tradition of the celebrating the Day of the Three Kings, which happens to be on January 6th this year.  It is a lovely setting, and there is free Mexican hot chocolate, as well has hot tamales and buenuelos for sale for a couple dollars.  A great event for the whole family.
