We have been discussing our families heritage in great detail in our classroom. They have all brought home a paper that ask the state where they are from and what it is famous for. We are going to map these all out on a giant map in our hallway, that way we can see where are grade level is from. We are also completing the heritage project at home, where the students will discover many things about their ancestors. I am trying to help them become more globally aware. I also want them to start bringing in newspaper and magazine articles that interest them from around the world.
Please continue having your child study their multiplication facts every night. This is vital in having them understand both multiplication and division facts.
We have also been discussing graduating from high school and which college they would like to attend. They have been writing journals about what they would like to be when they grow up, what college they would like to attend, what the mascot at the college is, and what they would like to study at this college. I am trying to encourage all of my students to graduate high school and push toward the goal of going to and graduating from college. They are the class of 2020!! What a neat group to be in.
