Welcome to our class web site!

Weekly Update: May 20, 2019

ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

End of the Year Party:  Our End of the Year party will be on Friday, May 31st from 9:00-10:00.  We will be having breakfast and playing board games.  A Sign Up Genius with will be out in the next few days.  We will need volunteers to help run the board game stations and donate food items.

 

On Task/Off Task Cards:  Our new on Task/Off Task system is working great.  Please be on the look out for completed cards coming home each Monday for the previous week. We want the students to be achieving a minimum of 20 on tasks per week.  If they reach this goal, they are awarded 5 SOAR tickets for the week. We appreciate your support with this new system!

 

 

Reflex Math & Dreambox: We are very lucky to have two great online math programs for students to practice their math skills at home with. Reflex Math builds math fact fluency in addition and subtraction.  Therefore, daily use of this program is most beneficial. Unfortunately, in class we are not always able to use Reflex everyday. We know limits on screen time are important, so if  your family is trying decide which program to focus on and spend more time on at home, we suggest focusing on Reflex.  We currently use Dreambox in the classroom for about 15 minutes per day, so students are getting the recommended practice in this program daily.   

 

Book Bags:  Book Bags should be coming home everyday with your student.  These bags go home each day and should be returned back to school the next day.  Please record the book title and the amount of time your child reads each night.  (We are shooting for at least 20 minutes a night!) There is also a signature required at the end of the week. We will be checking the logs and stamping them each week.  Students who have a completed Log each week will receive a SOAR Ticket.  Completed April Reading Logs will be due on Tuesday, April 30th.

 

Remind App: Please text the message @gbin1819 to the number 81010 to receive important text reminders from Mrs. Niccolls and Mrs. Indermuehle.

 

SOAR:  We are SOARing at Greenbrook and in Room 504!  S.O.A.R is Greenbrook's school wide rules and behavior management system. For information please visit the Greenbrook Link:

S = Self-Control

O = Offer Kindness

A = Act Responsibly 

R = Respect yourself & Others

 

"Uh Oh Forms" are given to students for not following our S.O.A.R. school-wide rules. For more information on "Uh-Oh Forms", please see the S.O.A.R. link above. "Eagle Bucks"will be given out during recess times. Teachers on Yard Duty, Noon Duty Volunteers, and any adults out during recess times will be looking for kids who are having Self Control, Offering Kindness, Acting Responsibly, and Respecting themselves and others. We hope the "Eagle Bucks" will be a positive reinforcement of our S.O.A.R. rules and a fun way to encourage kids to make great choices!

 

A PEEK INTO THE WEEK

The point of this section is to give families an idea about what we're working on this week in the classroom. The hope is that it will also help stimulate the dinner conversation as well.

 

Reading/Language Arts

 

In Reader's Workshop, we will continue our unit of study on Series Books.  

 

Writer's Workshop

In Writer's Workshop we will continue our Opinion unit.  Students will be writing opinion letters in which they write opinions about books and use evidence from the text to support those ideas.

 

Science

In the Science Lab with Mr. Pelham......

Snack Recess

Students have snack recesses at 10:10 and 2:00 each day. It is important that they come to school with healthy "NUT FREE" snacks.  We encourage them to be responsible for their snacks and pack a piece of fruit, or consider some protein and water...something to nourish their bodies and brains. Thank you for providing healthy options at home and encouraging their snack selection.
