Grade Level Greatness
4th Grade
Happy Friday parents! We are still looking into Edmodo, and plan to completely roll out assignments and information by the end of the month. Our field trip is right around the corner, and we will be contacting chaperones personally. We are limited to the number of people we can bring. If we have not reached out to confirm that you are a chaperone your money will be returned. We are discovering renewable and non-renewable resources and natural disasters. We are going to be heavily influenced by fractions this month, but will also spiral back to multi-digit multiplication and long division due to students’ expressing their discomfort of mastery in these standards.

Happenings in Libebe's Fifth
Happy Friday! This week in Science we continued our Life Science unit students need to complete the vocabulary assignment (on google classroom) by Tuesday. The unit will continue next week. In Math students continued with their Directed Study program and most are working to understand the Order of Operations. Parents can assist at home by continuing to have students complete Prodigy and Khan Academy at home to deepen understanding and increase math fluency. Thank you for all that you do!

P.E. - Weekly review annnnnd STAFF VS PARENTS BASKETBALL GAME !!!!!
Dear Parents and Guardians, This week the younger students displayed their knowledge of fitness and learned a new vocabulary word(s), heart rate. Along with their previous knowledge of; physical activity, exercise, and cardio exercise. The older grades, 4-5, took their cognitive post-assessment. STAFF vs. PARENTS BASKETBALL GAME !!!! This tradition that I've upheld at all my schools will be held on March 7, 2019, Thursday. The game will start 4 pm and end at 5 pm. Parents and staff may come to the gymnasium as early as 3:15 pm to start warming up. The 15-20 parents to contact Mr. Loomer by email will have a spot on the team. It is a first come-first serve basis. Only the IMMEDIATE FAMILY of the parents may come watch the game ( due to limited space ). This means that parents' children and CMIT students of the parents may attend, NOT cousins, uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc. We will do our best, but only 1 side of the basketball court has enough space for seating and standing. A referee will be provided to call a fair game. No outside food will be permitted in the gym. Please bring only proper basketball clothes/shoes, and water or sports drinks. We look forward to challenging the parents !!!

Second Grade Team
Hello Tiger Parents, Thank you all for your support during our valentine’s day exchange. The students had a blast showing their fellow peers that they care. The Second Grade team would like to encourage our parents to join the PTO. This is a great way to be connected to the school and other parents outside of the classroom. Please come out and support our school. Please mark your calendars for the Black History Month program on February 28th at 6pm.

Ms. Michelle Phillips and Mrs. Baynham

4th and 5th grade art
Hello! The latest update on 4th and 5th grade art is here. Students have begun a new unit where they are learning all about Op Art (Optical Illusions). First, students learned the basic information about this art movement. Later, the students looked at various examples of optical illusions and then practiced drawing them. In the following weeks, we will create a three-dimensional cube where each side will display a different optical illusion. Students will explore ways in which lines and shapes work together to play tricks on the eye. Through this exploration, 4th and 5th grade will create works of art from both imagination and inspiration.

Strategies for Success
Parents/Guardians, How are you? For the next few weeks, I would like to focus on (and share) important practices that we can use at home to help our students stay focused on learning and becoming successful. Much of the information will apply to upper elementary, but may still be applicable/can be broken down for lower school. # 1. Teach Organizational Skills When kids are organized, they can stay focused instead of spending time hunting things down and getting sidetracked. What does it mean to be organized at the elementary level? For schoolwork, it means having an assignment book and homework folder (many schools supply these) to keep track of homework and projects. Check your child's assignment book and homework folder every school night so you're familiar with assignments and your child doesn't fall behind. Set up a bin for papers that you need to check or sign. Also, keep a special box or bin for completed and graded projects and toss papers that you don't need to keep. Talk to your child about keeping his or her school desk orderly so papers that need to come home don't get lost. Teach your child how to use a calendar or personal planner to help stay organized. It's also helpful to teach your child how to make a to-do list to help prioritize and get things done. It can be as simple as: homework soccer put clothes away. Many of you guys are pros already- because I see many scholars demonstrate this at school every day. No one is born with great organizational skills — they need to be learned and practiced. Copied from kidshealth.org LOOK AHEAD:-If your scholar is in 3rd -5th grade, we will be having a Parent Meeting to provide information about the Maryland Comprehensive Assessment Program (MCAP) and in particular, PARCC assessment (this is the last year for PARCC, to be replaced Date: Tuesday, March 12, 2019 @ 6:00-7:30 PM Please put this on your calendar, and look out for future reminders via email and flyers. Let's work together for student success. Ms. Watkis
