We will have our first bake sale this Thursday at the high school and elementary lunch! Each student is responsible for bringing at least one item to help their group. Some students will be cooking or baking the baked goods or drinks, while others will simply bring the napkins or money to make change. However each student is completely responsible for their own portion of this project. If your child needs to make any purchases or make the product, please help them with this and SAVE ALL RECEIPTS OF COSTS. We will use these receipts to calculate the costs, cost per item, and profit from each group.

Homework

Monday: Math IXL C.1, LA IXL J.2

Tuesday: Math IXL D.1, LA K.1

Wednesday: Prepare for the Bake Sale

Thursday: Math IXL M.1

Friday: Relax!

That is it from us this week! Thank you parents for your support!

Week of April 16-20

Hello students and parents!

We hope you had a wonderful weekend! Thank you to everyone who was able to come out to the farewell party of Nicolas and Lucas! We are really going to miss them! One of the saddest things about being an international school is having to say goodbye to our good friends. But we hope that we will see them again and we wish them well as they return home to Spain.

Here are our plans for this week:

Language Arts

Last week we finished reading our Roald Dahl books for the first time through. Many of the kids have already begun writing notes to help them summarize their reading. This week all of us will work on writing short summaries of our reading for the book reviews we are writing. We will spend a lot of time working in the computer lab typing.

Math

 

This week in Math class we will be reviewing addition and subtraction with number lines and mental math strategies. Next week we will review addition and subtraction with the standard algorithm and also practice using a calculator to help us calculate our profits from the bake sale.

Social Studies
