Educational Update # 17
Week of January 16 - 19, 2018
Lincoln Street School was a mass of Patriot gear today as we celebrated our 2nd Friday Patriots’ Day. Let’s hope the LSS student spirit brings the Pats luck on Sunday afternoon against the Jaguars.
It looks like a beautiful weekend to get outside and enjoy the snow! Sunshine and temperatures in the thirties and forties, not bad for January!
Grades closed for the 2nd marking period today. Report cards will be issued next Friday, the 26th. The most recent STAR reading and math scores will be sent home with the report card as well.
The class did a great job creating trivia circuit boards this week. We used circuit testers to see if the questions matched up with the correct answers, and they did!
We began discussing another algorithm for multiplying larger numbers called partial products. The partial products strategy is actually very similar to the partitioning method.
Many students are busy working on the final hardcover fairy tale book. If you have not paid for the hardcover book yet, please turn in the money ($4) as soon as possible. Thanks!
The STAR Math Assessment will be given on Monday during reading time.
The book report mystery project, due on the 30th of January, will be to create a poster highlighting the actual mystery, the steps leading up to solving the mystery, the main characters involved and the setting of the story. I will provide the poster board for this project.
The 2018 Get Fit in May PTO Road Race Committee met for the first on Tuesday night. You can register early (until January 31st) and save, save, save. Hopefully you will receive the email registration link today. It is the 20th Anniversary of the PTO Get Fit in May Road Race.
Both classes combined for a STEM Challenge this afternoon. PEA Pen pal letters were passed out this week.
Just maybe we will be lucky enough to be in school all 5 days next week. Rest up as LSS has had a lot of students out this past week.
Have a great weekend. Go Pats!
