In Social Studies we are learning about what the president does, Abraham Lincoln and American symbols. Addition & subtraction continue to be the focus in math. We are using pictures, ten-frames, number lines, and our brains to solve problems. We also continue to write. After we read a story we respond with writing. The kids make predictions, give their opinions, make connections with the characters, recall information, state the problem & solution, and describe the characters. Next week we will learn about dental health.
I apologize for not returning homework. I want you to know that I have looked at each and every assignment and appreciate the work you are doing at home. If you have not already downloaded the addition flashcards from last week's IS, please do so. I will continue to assess the kids. We have moved on to subtraction.
Next week is Read Across America Week. I will forward an email with additional information. It is also conference week. If you have not already signed up for a time, check out the school's weekly update for the link to sign up. I just finished the report cards and love seeing the students' growth. i look forward to sharing that with you.
I'm thrilled to be teaching my sixth year at HRCCS! I went to Chico State where I received a BA in Liberal Studies, a Minor in Latin American Studies and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I taught 3rd/4th for eight years at a multi-age, project-based, performing and visual arts school in my hometown of Stockton. My husband and I moved to Auburn in 2007 to be close to the trails and raise our children, Robby (9) and Amaya (4). I enjoy painting, cooking, working in the yard, and eating my way through San Francisco.
