 The students received a math incentive chart today titled "My Math is Blasting Off!" The purpose of the chart is to motivate students to memorize addition and subtraction facts.  Please read the letter I sent home explaining how it works. Students are expected to spend at least 10 minutes a night practicing their Math facts. This week, we'll also be playing some fun games in class to give students practice with counting money, including Money Bingo and Race to a Dollar!  In Social Studies, the students are learning about the importance of our natural resources. They created posters of renewable and nonrenewable resources, and learned about the need to develop habits that are environmentally friendly. We will be reading the poem "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer and discussing the beauty of nature and the wonder of God's creations.
