Now that the year has started, and we've established some basic number sense skills, I would like to give the students an opportunity to work on some fun logic problems. Each Monday, I will post a POW - problem of the week in the blogs section. If students choose to work on it, they can bring there work to school as they complete it. I will review the question in class on Friday.
Most Friday's, your child will write you a letter on their google drive telling you about his/her week. To access this, you will either need them to log you on, or for their log in information. If you have a google account, they may be able to share it with you and you can use the edit tool to respond to them. We are not using email as I need to have access to their writing as well to see their progress.
Please respect that it is an unedited piece of writing, whose purpose is both to help your child think about the week’s learning, and to communicate with you. Please do not correct your child's work.
I am asking parents/family members to write a short message back to their child. You can do this directly underneath your child's letter. This doesn’t need to be long but it should be a positive note that acknowledges their writing, progress, or questions or gives suggestions on how they can improve their writing or progress at school. This will be an effective way to increase your child’s communication about school, and to keep you informed of progress and/or concerns. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy this as well!
Some suggested sentence starters you can use in your response in case you get stuck...

Right now, these are our field trips that we are planning to attend and thus need parent volunteers with security clearance. Closer to each date, forms will be sent home where you can indicate if you are able to volunteer however, if you want to 'plan ahead' and book time off work to attend, I can collect names as we go. You can either email me: email@example.com or comment on this page and indicate which date(s) you can attend. Please ensure you have your clearance (or will have your clearance) before the field trip date.
