We had so much fun at the DASH Kickoff on Friday. The DASH is one of my favorite events here at Tritt. I'm especially excited about the new course and the team-oriented focus, much like American Ninja Warrior. The class voted and our team name is Waters' Warriors - the perfect name for a Warrior Dash. The money you donate goes directly back to Tritt and ALL students will benefit from your generous donations. The class and I are super excited about the new water fountains that the DASH money will buy - perfect for refilling water bottles to keep our bodies hydrated and our minds focused on learning. The first count day is Monday, October 17th. Our class goal is for each student to collect $25 in donations and our incentive is extra recess. Thank you for your support.
I look forward to meeting with each of you during Conference Week. School will dismiss 2 hours early every day the week of October 17th - 21st.
Here's a look at what we're learning this week:
Math - Multiplication Properties
We will learn the following multiplication properties this week: Zero, Identity, Commutative, and Associative. Please continue to practice facts daily.
Reading - In reading groups, we will continue learning about informational text and text features which will be our primary focus throughout the quarter. Understanding and using these features helps improve our comprehension of informational text.
Writing - Informational Writing
Grammar - Verbs
Science - Weathering and Erosion continued
Social Studies -
Geography continued (locating the Rocky and Appalachian Mountains on a U.S. map)
We will begin learning about our first Patriot - Paul Revere. This will tie into our informational writing when we write about a famous patriot.
