Our class will hold our 3rd “Flea Market Friday” in the classroom on February 22. The purpose is to use our Class Money to buy (and/or sell) little trinkets and other knick-knacks. During the process of buying and selling, students are required to calculate prices, add, subtract, divide, multiply, give correct change, and wisely use their money to make more money or to buy things they like. This is a great way to learn how to run a business and the “art” of selling. It is also a part of applying Common Core State Standards to real-life activities in the classroom.
Students are NOT ALLOWED to bring anything of value, rather, they can bring extra toys they have, playing cards, old games, books, and other used “stuff” that they have and want to sell. Students can also sell special skills they have like coloring, drawings, origami, making bookmarks, or other demonstrations.
We will have a fun learning experience in our Flea Market. THANK YOU for your support.
The students website project was started this month and the students are hard at work making their websites look great with their own designs and favorite things. We will use our websites to publish our Black History, Women’s History, and State Reports.
This week in STEM, we will start an exciting project for the first time ever in Mr. Pham’s class: OZOBOTS!!! We will have more information once we know more about the… OZOBOTS!!!
TIPS FOR SUCCESS 2 - Make Learning a Priority
Parents, your attitude toward school, attendance, education, and involvement in the school makes a strong and lasting impression on your child. Show your child, by example, that learning is a priority. Please ask for the Learning Schedule at the beginning of the week to know what are the activities for the upcoming week.
To inform parents of what's going on in the classroom, curriculum, news, progress, and activities. Please ask for the Learning Schedule that goes home every Monday.
