Weekly Update Sept. 26-30

A 4 day school week for kids!  I hope the extra day off is fun and relaxing. This week we will have our first lock down drill of the school year. Lock downs are always viewed as being used when there is imminent danger on campus, but it is very important that they can be used in other situations as a means for control. A few weeks ago we had a modified lock down type situation when a student was injured and Corona Fire had to make entry onto the blacktop to assist her. In this situation, students were kept inside to make sure they were not in harms way with the big engine on campus. I will talk with the kids about why lock downs are used and why it is not a scary situation, and I hope you will too!

This week we continue topic 3 in math and we will be doing a lot of subtraction!  I'll continue adding games and practice as I can find it here. I hope that is useful.  In reading we will begin The Ballad of Mulan and inferencing. Lots of good stuff ahead!

Last week we had lots of movement on our AR chart and quite a few kids pass their fast facts tests. Keep readign and practicing those facts!!
