Hello Familes!  Thanks for stopping by our first Week-at-a-Glance!

Important Info:

Look for our school picture form coming home with your child this week - it was put in their take-home mailboxes today (Wednesday).  Picture day is October 13th!

Webster Game Night is this Thursday!  Feel free to come join our Webster staff, families, and community for a game night from 6-7.  Snacks will be provided!

Last week we began book check-out from Webster's school library.  Most students in 316 were able to check out books.  We plan to hold book check-out every Friday, so make sure your child brings back their library books every Friday so they can get something new!

In Our Classroom:

  • Math:
    • ‚ÄčIn math we are continuing with our graphing unit.  Your children have now learned about how to collect and organize data into bar graphs, line plots, and pie charts.  Currently, each student is now working on coming up with their own question to ask the rest of the class that they will ultimately graph they way they choose!
    • Check out the website, Create a Graph, if you'd like to extend your child's learning about graphs at home.  This is a great site that allows kids to plug in their own data and see it represented through different types of graphs.
  • Social Studies:
    • We having been continuing learning about democracy and how we can help our communities.  Your children have been engaging in current affairs and learning about our voting systems.  Last Friday, each student got a chance to design their own hypothetical presidential candidate and pick out the issues that they cared the most about.  This week, we have been writing about ways we can make our communities better places.
  • Literacy:
    • We are in full swing with our Reader's Workshop!  We've been working on identifying the central message of different texts through key details.  As a class, we practiced with the book, Jingle Dancer by Cynthia Leitich Smith.
  • Social Skills:
    • This week, we started practicing a little bit of meditation at the beginning of the day.  As a class, we're working on ways that we can be in control of our emotions and not let them be in control of us.
