The Giving Spirit
As we mentioned in the last newsletter, our staff has taken on a kindness challenge.

So far we have collected donations, donated to a children's charity, exchanged cards, notes of kind words, brought breakfast for a colleague, shared something homemade with the staff, sent ecards, and shared treats .

I have to say. Our staff is an AWESOME STAFF.
The Pictures are of staff members providing treats for each other. Ms. Mireno, formally known as Mrs. Dubon, declined from a picture.

But thank you to you all who continue to have a giving spirit.

Drop Off /Pick Up and Parking!!!
Dear CMIT Elementary Parents,
Please follow our morning drop off procedures. Remember that our drop off location is back side of the building, in front of the cafeteria doors. We start receiving students at 7:35 am. There is only one car line in the mornings. Join the car line and have your child(ren) ready to get off the car upon arrival at the door. Dropping off from the car shouldn't be taking more than 30 seconds. We need your cooperation in this matter. This will increase the pace of drop off in the morning.

Pick Up in the afternoon begins at 2:20 pm. Please ensure that you are entering from in front of the CLF building only. Parents are to remain in their vehicles. Students we are not picked up by 2:55 will be sent to Enrichment and charged an emergency fee due upon pick up.

PLEASE!!!! Do not use any neighbor's parking lot.

Calling All Steppers...
On December 13th, 2016 the R.O.A.R Step Team will be hosting tryouts for students in grades 3-5. Students will learn a combination of steps and be evaluated on precision, energy, attitude and willingness to learn difficult pieces.

What is stepping?
Stepping is a rising art form and an important part of America’s artistic and cultural heritage. In stepping, the body is used as an instrument to create intricate rhythms and sounds through a combination of footsteps, claps and the spoken word.

If your scholar is interested, please complete the online interest form https://goo.gl/forms/1E8XJkg54zhGlSVp1

Bring your A+ game! See you on Tuesday!!

Our Student Spotlight is Katelyn in Ms. Santiago's class. Katelyn's favorite subject is Math. She especially loves learning about shapes. She also loves to read. She is a sweet girl in class who always follows directions!

This week in Kindergarten...
English Language Arts
We will read the story "Little Quack." It is a story about a little duckling and how he learns . We will be comparing and contrasting, working with initial and final /r/, and learning about verbs.

Mathematics
We will be finishing up shapes! We will analyze, compare, and create shapes from smaller shapes. After shapes, we will be moving to addition!
Please note: students should still practice finding 1 and 2 fewer. Be sure to get some extra practice at home! An easy way to incorporate this at home is during dinner prep or at the grocery. For example, "I have eight apples, but I need 2 more (or 2 fewer). How many will that be? Can you do that for me?" This will help make Subtraction and Addition much easier later in the year!

Science
Students will be learning about motion and magnets. What types of motion are there? What is force? How do we apply force?

High Frequency Words
Here are our sight words we have learned so far. Remember to practice reading and writing these words regularly! (When reading at home, if you see these words, have your child point it out!) All of the words we will learn this year are available on our grade level website under "Sight Words."

I, am, little, to, a, have, is, the, we, my, like, he, for, me, with

REMINDERS
- Homework is due on FRIDAY each week. Remember to look for their new homework packet on Fridays. Homework that is not submitted by the due date will be given a ZERO.
- Please read regularly! Remember that just 20 minutes a day can boost your child's reading levels!
- As the weather gets colder, remember that we still go outside for recess when the weather is above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately!
- If you would like to chaperone any future field trips, you must have a fingerprint background check. This can be obtained from the Fingerprint office at the county building 14201 School Lane, Upper Marlboro, MD Monday-Friday from 8:00am-3:45pm. For more information or to contact the fingerprinting office, please look at the fingerprint office website: http://www1.pgcps.org/fingerprinting/
- Please remember to send an extra pair of uniform clothes to keep in your child's cubbie at school in the event of accidents or spills.
- Uniform is enforced daily, including uninterrupted black shoes. Please go to http://cmitelementary.org/uniform-policy/ for more information.

Fun Activities to do at home
Breaking Up Words into Syllables. As you read your leveled book, break the longer words into syllables to sound them out. Notice that when the syllable ends with a vowel, the vowel typically makes its long sound. If the syllable has a vowel in the middle of two consonants, the vowel makes its short vowel sound. Example: hop-ping, ho-ping. Extension: Use your knowledge about vowels in syllables to spell these two syllable words: clapping, redo, and lion.


It’s all in the Details. Read your leveled book. Stop periodically to talk about the story. When the story is finished, retell the story, and include key details. What is the message or lesson from this story? Extension: Make connections to the story. Does this story remind you of another story?
Does this story remind you of an experience you have had?

Counting On. Have an adult say a number such as 78. You start at 78 and continue counting up to 120. Have an adult say another number such as 24. You start at 24 and continue counting up to 120. Continue the activity until it is no longer fun. Extension: Have an adult say a math equation such as
62+3. You start at 62 and then count up 3 (62…63,64,65).

Student of the Week: Shayne Thomas
We interviewed Shayne and learned his favorite colors are blue and red. He likes to learn math and play Sonic. Shayne wore his sonic costume to school two times in a row!

By: Aaron Stills

Math
In math we have been learning about regrouping addition and subtraction. Regrouping is when you put a tens amount of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,or 9 to the tens place if it is in the ones place.(left side is the tens place) regrouping is also when you borrow from the tens place if the bottom number is bigger than the top number in the ones place(right side is the ones place).Bigger bottom beter borrow!

By: Shayne Thomas

Reading
Next week we are going to read Rosa and Blanca. We are going to learn about words from other languages that means that we are learning about different languages instead of english. Also, next week we are learning about vowel patterns that are i, ie, igh, y. For example: weigh, white, why. Next week are also learn about predictions and setting purposes to help us comprehend texts. Predict means to guess what is going to happen next.

We wrote a pen pal letter to Mrs.Ahmed’s class and they wrote one to us! Our class is going to write a letter back to Mrs. Ahmed's class answering their questions.

Second Grade Updates
Second Graders have been working on friendly letters this week as part of our Creative Communication unit in RELA.

Some of our classes have started a Pen Pal letter exchange, and students are writing some very cordial correspondences! We teachers are proud of their work, and they will continue to improve their writing skills through this meaningful activity. Please encourage your child to write letters beyond school as well.

In math, we are continuing to work on measurement skills and using units from both the standard system and the metric system. Please assist your child at home with measurement activities and accessing tools such as rulers, tape measures, and metersticks (yardsticks are available at hardware stores). A creative solution could be to measure out and mark a piece of string in lieu of a ruler. There are many books related to measurement available in the public library. We read "How Big is a Foot?" by Rolf Myller, but there are many more.

Please be sure to work on supporting your child's progress through the STEM fair project of their choice. Remember, it is due right after winter break. We have some very inquisitive scientists in second grade who are off to a great start on their projects.

3rd Grade
Name A Natural Resource Found In...
Have you ever wondered what kind of natural resources are found in different parts of the United States? Well, our third graders did their research. Students picked a state of their choice and identified 2 natural resources that can be found in that state. Boy did we learn a lot. Did you know that game fish can be found in Mississippi or gold can be found in Montana? Students really worked hard on their projects. Good job scholars!


This week, students will be asking and answering questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers and distinguishing their own point of view versus the author’s point of view. In Science and Math, students will be discussing the effects of different forces on an object’s motion and interpreting data.


Let’s have an awesome week!

Students had a great week! Students should be finishing up their STEM fair projects. ALL STEM fair projects are due Jan. 3rd. Congratulations to Alexander C., Alexander A., and Christian S. for being great scholars. They all had birthdays the past week. Please ensure all work is submitted by due dates. Students do not have Winter break packets for science or math. The focus should be STEM fair. Students will not have reading packets. The focus should be research papers that go with the STEM Fair. Please remind your child to be on their best behavior. We will be working on the scientific method in science, and data in math. Have a happy holidays.

Celebrating!
Pictures above show fifth graders working in cooperative groups in science/math-Courtesy of Mrs. Inci and Mrs.Glasper

Celebrating all fifth graders who are becoming responsive writers across all genres.
I am celebrating the works of all my students. We talk about when things go wrong, but today I am celebrating fifth grade writers who have been doing so well in unlocking writing prompts, and writing across a variety of genres.

Writing helps students develop their reading skills. Parents-you too can help your child develop writing skills at home. Provide opportunities for your child to keep a reflective journal, listen to them read, and provide valuable feedback.

Students are writing daily here at school, please encourage them to share their ideas, and possibly read/dramatize a story/play that they have written.

Students are also working in cooperative groups in science/math. Please include math and science into daily discussions at home. You would be surprised at how much you can do to help your child in these areas.

The Hour of Code (December 5-11)
Dear Parents and Students,

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.

But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.

That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 5-11). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.

Our Hour of Code is making a statement that CMIT Elementary is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to volunteer, reach out to local media, share the news on social media channels and consider hosting additional Hour of Code events in the community.

See http://hourofcode.com/us for details, and help spread the word.

Sincerely,
Technology Teacher
