Dec 14 Update
Sunday, December 16, 2012 8:00 PM

Dear Parents,
We have survived the first Winter blast and I think the kids are having a blast out at recess playing in the snow! Thanks so much for sending them to school prepared for the Minnesota weather so they can really enjoy the fresh cool air!

Next Wednesday Dec. 19th we are going to Walker Senior Center for another visit from 11:00 to about 12:45. Again we would love to have at least one more parent to help chaperone. Last month the kids had fun playing name bingo and also were filmed by channel 5 news while they were playing at Farmstead Park after our visit. A link to the short film clip is on our webpage.

In Math the 3rd graders are finishing up their unit on addition and subtraction of 3 and 4 digit numbers and will soon be moving on to multiplication. The 4th graders will continue to work on division strategies with 3 digit dividends and single digit divisors. Please ask your 4th grader if they can identify the dividend (number of things being divided), divisor and quotient (which could be either number of groups or things in each group depending on the problem), when they are doing their homework.

Our new in class Science unit is called Energy and Electromagnetism. Look for a description of the unit coming home in backpacks soon. Currently in Sue's Science specialist class the students are studying a unit on the Physics of Sound.

In Media the kids worked on a newsletter using a Microsoft Word template and featuring a President from 1845 - 1901. Currently we are researching  Presidents from the 1901 - 1961 era. We will use a Word poster template to display the facts from these Presidents.

Thanks so much for your support! Have a wonderful holiday season!
