Where Are We With Our Learning?
This past week and a half has been busy in Mrs. McBride's and Luebber's classrooms. In math students completed Unit 2 and took their Unit 2 assessment. The math goalS still are LEARN MULTIPLICATION BASIC FACTS, and learn how to use quick sketches to solve multiplication problems. In Social Studies students are wrapping up their Civics Projects. Their next Social Studies Unit will be learning the Geography of Washington. In reading students completed their Theme 1 Assessment. They did well overall on the vocabulary and fiction sections of the assessment. However, non-fiction (a biography)is an area where a lot more skill building is needed. In science students are completing their learning about the dams on the Columbia River and its tributaries. As we finish up our "Why Dams?" lessons students will be able to discuss why the Grand Coulee Dam was built; the five major uses of the Columbia River due to the dams, and several of the major problems that the dams created. Additionally, last Friday both classes began the G.R.E.A.T. Program with Officer Fuller of the Quincy Police Department. Ask you child what they are learning every day. Ask your child what their homework is and check their planner. Ask you child if their homework is done and have them show it to you. Those three questions and checks will help your child be successful in school.
