Classroom of the Week – Third Grade Room 114

Third Grade room 114, Mrs. Koebernick’s class have been doing a lot of fun things.  Last week we had a PBIS celebration.  We voted and chose to do coding with computers.  We have built a couple of STEM Olympic projects.  We made bobsleds tracks with straws, tubes and gummy bears.  We also used pipe cleaners and life savers to make speed skaters.  In reading, we are working on nonfictions and fiction stories about communities.  In writing, we wrote how to stories and narrative stories about snowmen.  This week we are writing about friendship.  In math, we just finished learning about fractions and are starting measurement.  Room 114 is hard-working group of learners.  Mrs. Koebernick is very proud of her class.

 

A Message From Mrs. Ankrom

Dear Hoover community,

It was wonderful to see so many of our Hoover families attending our winter conferences. We hope you enjoyed your Student-Led Conference last week. Our students work extremely hard on a daily basis and it is always rewarding to see them explain their insights on their individual school experience, as well as discuss their strengths and the areas they would like to grow in. Thank you for taking time to attend your child’s conference and for celebrating your child’s achievements.

Celebrations:

Hoover staff and students enjoyed our PBIS whole school celebration on Thursday, February 15. Each teacher stood up and recognized their Herbie Hero of the month. Students who have received Smencils this month were also recognized. We were fortunate to have a few highlights at the assembly; Mrs. Mendoza’s class had a few student authors read their writing pieces, the kindergartners sang an ABC song that they had been working on in music, and a few members of the 5th grade class displayed their drum playing ability. It was a great way to start off a conference weekend!

Classroom of the Week – Kindergarten Room 102

Writing

Our week will be filled with shared readings and read alouds about force and motion. This is our science focus.  The students will write about experiences for this science unit during the week.  We will also write our own opinion writing during this week.

Math Updates
During this week we will review the math chapter we experienced last week. In preparation for the Chapter 8 test on Tuesday.  We will be reviewing activities through the week using activities to review addition and subtraction as we want to make sure we continue to build on our ready facts and these two areas of our math understanding!

Science/Social Studies

We will continue to read texts that prepare us to understand Force and Motion concepts. We will identify ways that things move.  We will also learn to identify a push and a pull. We will look at video clips and read about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.  We will compare and contrast these two presidents next week once we have studied each of them.

Student Council at Friendship Village

Student council kids worked hard making fleece tie blankets and went last night to donate them to Friendship Village residents. The students were able to play a game with the residents and chatted together. Was a great experience for all involved, and the residents were very excited to see such young faces.
