This week and next week she will be working on:
Thursday and Friday: Transformations of 2D shapes. Your student will need to know the vocabulary: translation, rotation, and reflection and how they are related to shapes and geometry.
Monday and Tuesday: Subdividing shapes to get down to the basic shape.
Wednesday: Transformation Test
Thursday: Pi Day! She will begin the unit on Circles. It is a VERY short unit so a test will follow very quickly and probably Monday, 3/18.
Learning more about figurative language and creating idiom posters for them right now. They will soon begin working on a figurative language comic strip.
The Barnes and Noble Book Fair is coming! Ms. Margerum and I will be reading for about 15 minutes on Saturday at 1:30. Please make plans to join us! We'd love to see you there!
As you know, we have a field trip coming up to Nauticus at the end of the month. The cost is $45 and includes the charter bus to the museum, admission to both the museum and a retired battleship, a hands on activity, and a movie. It is a great field trip and we are hoping everyone can go. If you would like to be considered for a chaperone, please let me know as soon as possible. So far, I only have 1 permission slip indicating interest returned.
Our Dancing Classrooms culminating event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 12 at 1:20 in the Gym. We expect for it to last about an hour.

A letter with more information on it was sent home yesterday (Tuesday, March 6) please see it for more information on appropriate dress for students for the event.
A family workshop will be held on Tuesday, March 26 from 6-7. The three topics are "Screen Time", "The ABC's of Testing", and "Safety".
