Voting matters! Kindergarteners learned about the importance of voting and had real-life application of the process by advocating for their favorite playdough color. Students read and wrote their selections, represented tally marks, counted and recorded the final results, and assisted in mixing up a batch of our winner--red. Voting matters...and makes our classroom experiences richer and more authentic!

Second graders solving an unknown number in the middle math problem. For example one sudent is thinking I saw 10 cubes. My partner pulled off an amount off and put it behind his back. Then he gave me the leftovers. So I know there was 10 now I am looking at 4. What number of cubes does my partner have behind his back? I think 6 behind his back, because 4+6=10 or 10-6=4. Keep practicing partners of 10 Second Grade! Soon you will see a pattern when we talk about partners of 100! Hmmmm....Sincerely, Mr. Nelson

In math today, second graders played a game called, "Which bucket will win?" Each student was given one hundred, one ten, and one cube worth one. Second graders saw the impact place value has when filling up a bucket. The other buckets ended up with 40 and 25 in them. Strategy came into play. They found using their 100 square made the most impact. Results of Round 3 they will find out tomorrow!

Hola!! This week in Spanish, we talk about the Mayans and one of their largest and most important cities "Chichen Itza", please ask your child to tell you more about this story. The students drew pyramids and decorated them with beautiful colors, some built pyramids with pieces of cardboard and wood. Here is a small explanation so you can talk with your child about it: “In the world of the ancient Maya there were many sacred days, most often associated with celestial events. But none perhaps more widely celebrated than the Spring and Fall Equinox at the ancient site of Chichén Itza in central Yucatan. Dominating the center of Chichén Itza and the center stage for this event is the remarkable Temple of Kukulcan (the Maya name for Quetzalcoatl), often referred to as "El Castillo" (the castle). Great sculptures of Plumed Serpents run down the sides of the northern staircase, and are set off by shadows from the corner tiers on the Spring and Fall equinox. This twice-annual spectacle is said to have captured the hearts and imaginations of the Maya and Toltec people who once inhabited this robust ancient city.”

Learning a second language: How parents can help? . A parent’s attitude toward language learning is crucial to a child’s success, and parents don’t always recognize the value of learning a second language in a changing world. Why learn a language? It’s likely to help your child become a better thinker, as well as giving her/him an advantage in the work world. Here’s what you can do to support language classes at your child’s school and language learning at home:  Help your child make time to practice. Learning a language is like learning to play an instrument.  Have your student teach you to say something in the language every day. Explaining is learning. Let your child laugh at your mangled pronunciation – and correct you.  Ask Ms. Cortes for resources your child can use at home.  Provide videos, books and music in the language. Here are some suggestions; all the programs are FREE- GRATIS! -Oh Noah Spanish BBC -Salsa Spanish Episodes Georgia Broadcasting -Peppa Pig in Spanish YouTube
