-Writing: Students are working on doing revisions on their rough draft for their "All About ____" informational book.
-Math: We are in the midst of module 3. This module focuses on learning and working with the multiplication facts for x6, x7, x8, and x9. Practicing facts at home with flash cards, games, etc. is beneficial for students. Students are learning how to break apart larger multiplication facts into smaller ones that are then added together. Students will be solving story problems and determining whether they need to add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve. We are working with 1-step and 2-step problems.
-Reading: Connected with our writing unit, we are working with non-fiction texts in our reading lessons. We are practicing "reading to learn" (different from reading for pleasure) and working with information from a text in different ways, such as thinking about cause and effect or comparing and contrasting information.
-Social Studies: Our first unit of social studies is about the geography of the North America continent. We have been studying maps and students had a chance to try drawing a map of a place they know well. Soon students will be picking one of the regions of North America to learn about in a small group.
A few fun facts about me:
-I attended Sunset Elementary as a student! This photo below is me on my first day of 3rd grade as a student, and on the first day of 3rd grade as a teacher in 2013 (in a different classroom than I'm in now). :)
-I received my BA in Elementary Education and MA in Teaching from Biola University in Southern California.
-Some hobbies/things I enjoy: reading, photography, knitting, boating and wakeboarding, camp Sambica, Disneyland (and visiting family and friends in SoCal), watching the Seahawks, and playing board games with family or friends. A few of my "favorites"- Stores: Target, InSpa or Massage Envy, & Amazon.com. Treats: original Reese's, dark chocolate M&Ms. Drinks: Coca Cola, non-coffee drinks at Starbucks.
Please help everyone stay healthy by following these tips from the King County Health Department. Please keep your child home if he/she is sick with cold or flu symptoms.
Students who have been sick need to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. The same 24-hour rule also applies to vomiting.
