Mrs. Andersen's Button Challenge

Just for fun in our classroom we do a button challenge.  We talked about the buttons they could earn today.  When they accomplish the challenge they just need to get a signed note from their parent and bring it to school and they get a button for their backpack.  When they earn all they buttons they get a big prize...

Thank you Veterans!

We were privileged to hear from Miss Foster's Dad today who is a retired Naval Officer.   We watched an amazing video and talked about the saying, "freedom isn't free"

Last week we mummified our stuffed animals and created an awesome resting place for them.

We have been working really hard in math and on all our fraction algebra!  I'm am in hopes that our class will do very well on the Tuesday Math Test!

Scary things and bat wings...

We have accomplished quite a bit this last term...We have learned all about Moon phases, seasons Egypt and microorganisms.  We have charted the moon, learned all sorts of moo and seasons vocabulary and learned how to keep bacteria and germs away by washing our hands - REAL WELL!!!

We decorated our room with oragami bats, picasso Frankensteins and skeleton posters.  Our class won a pizza lunch with our red ribbon week poster!  WAY TO GO!

Math:  the next two weeks we will be learning to multiply and divide fractions and use all of our past skills to pull them apart.  Remember to do your math homework each night as it is given and return it the following day!

Social studies: this coming week will be mummifying stuffed animals so look for a note to be coming home with what to bring.  We will end our Egypt Unit and move on to Ancient Greece...Lots of fun times ahead.

We have begun our guided reading groups - ask you student about the book they are reading?

Thanks to all of you for coming and visiting with me for parent conferences!  I have such great students and families in my classroom.  I appreciate all of your support!!!!
