Thank You!

It was great to have such a wonderful turnout at our Plimoth Project open house this morning. Thank you for attending. The children took such great pride in their projects and enjoyed the compliments that were left. If your schedule didn't allow you to, we understand, but please know that you were missed.

For those of you who like to plan ahead,  be sure to mark your calendars for our next field trip on Tuesday February 10 to Harvard Peabody Museum in Cambridge. More information to follow as the date gets closer.

Amazing Plimoth Projects!

Wow! Every year these projects get better and better. I'm simply amazed at how wonderful all of the Plimoth Projects turned out. Thank you for all of the support you gave your child as they worked through this long term project at home.

We have begun sharing them with our classmates. It's always fun to look at how another classmate carried out the same project.

On Thursday, December 18th you are invited into our classrooms from 8:30-9:00 a.m. to view the projects. I hope your schedule will allow you to join us.

A Little Bit of Time Pays Off

Once Adah set her mind to it, she found some time to practice demonstrate her understanding of subtraction facts on Xtra Math.  Nice job!

Another XtraMath Milestone!

What a surprise I had appear in my email box just as I was about to shut things down on a Friday afternoon! Way to go Jamie for finishing up your subtraction practice. Take the weekend off and on Monday you will be all set to move into multiplication!

To everyone in room 5, keep practicing your math facts. XtraMath is just one tool, you can practice using flashcards, having a parent orally give you facts to practice or play a Addition, Subtraction or Multiplication Top-It with a family member or on EDM online games! A little practice each day can go along way.

Way to Go!

Last week was a busy week for some of the mathematicians in room 5. Three more students need to be celebrated for their XtraMath milestone. Keep up the great fact practice!
