This week, we were able to add the Daily Depositor component to our Every Day Counts Calendar Math bulletin board. We began with a million dollars on September 1st, and each day we will subtract $1,000 times the calendar date. Therefore, on September 4th, we subtracted $4,000. The students predicted how long it will take for us to spend our $1,000,000. We shall see who gets the closest.
Operation World's Prayer Calendar to pray for a country in the world.
We plot on a map the countries we have prayed for. I can't wait to see this map at the end of the year!
On Thursday night, I held my Parent Tea. This is an event where parents are invited to school in order to spend a casual evening with their child's teacher. Refreshments are served, and I was able to share my observations of the class so far, my goals/vision for this year, and some tips for 5th grade. We closed with a Q&A time. This evening just allows the parents and teachers to get to know one another better. It's always a fun night for me. :)
Week 3 was a short, but enjoyable one!
