This week the kids will take their Unit 3 Test in both reading and math. They will also take their Fractions Intervention post test. Test, test, test…lucky kids! 🙂 Thankfully, the tests will be broken up over several days so they aren’t overwhelmed all at once. There will be no spelling this week, and I anticipate homework only on Monday in my math class.
Speaking of fractions, the kids have been learning about them the past few weeks at Interventions. After each lesson, the kids get a chance to answer an “exit question” and earn a “piece of the pie” coupon for each question. Today, one lucky winner from each homeroom will have their name drawn from that coupon basket, and have a chance to throw a pie in Mr. Roberson’s face! 🙂 This will take place Thursday morning in the lunch room. It’s always a riot to see Mr. R get the kids all worked up, and they LOVE getting a chance to see that pie go splat!
Another exciting aspect to the week is that the school has earned their next 10,000 blue coupon reward. To celebrate, the kids are welcome to wear pajamas on Thursday.
Lastly, my uncle passed away last Saturday after a lengthy battle with cancer. While it is very sad, we are all so thankful he is out of pain. As a result, I will be gone on Tuesday and Wednesday to attend to his funeral in Iowa. There is nothing I hate more than missing school, especially during a test week. But, I will prep the kids today about my absence, and I hope all goes well during the time I’m gone.
Thanks for reading, have a great week and an especially great holiday season!
