Week 22

What a busy week getting ready for Valentine's Day and the 100th day of kindergarten!  We even squeezed in a biobuddy visit that surrounded the circulatory system as well as a S.T.E.A.M. project with Ms. Schoenborn's 2nd grade class.  

See below regarding information about math from Mrs. Bailey:

Parents,

This week, we have spent the last two days in meetings with our math consultant, Cassy Turner.  She met with grade level teams to talk about our successes with our new program, Math In Focus - and to help us look ahead as we plan our continued implementation.  It was good to hear her affirm how we're teaching math in our classrooms, and how engaged our students are with new vocabulary and problem-solving strategies.  One thing we heard loud & clear was to make sure our students are 'fluent' with their math facts.  So, continue to practice these at home.  Last night, approximately 35 parents attend "boot camp".  As one parent commented, "I need to be in school again to learn math this way."  Much of last night's session was "hands-on" for parents . . . here are notes taken by Peg Bailey from Cassy's presentation.
