On Friday we received our Chromebooks. Soon, I will be teaching the students how to write blog posts. Once we have done that, I will be asking the students (it is a classroom job) to be updating the blog portion of our website with the things they think are important to tell others about.
Last week we began our new math program, and this week we will begin switching with Mrs. Phleps' class at math time. This week we will begin discussing citizenship and the 4 types of social scientists (historian, geographer, economist, and political scientist). We have also been learning about our reader's and writer's notebooks. This week students will begin writing letters to me about what they are reading.
As part of our discussion about citizenship, we began a challenge last week with Mrs. Phelps' class. The challenge was to think about a problem we may have here at school (on the bus, playground, in the cafeteria, etc.) and then to brainstorm a solution to that problem. The solutions the children come up with will then be presented to Mr. Johnson.
Have a great week!!
