Greetings from Ascent Academy at the North Pole
My poor golf clubs are frozen…just like the rest of us. We keep telling ourselves we need the water…okay…I think we have enough now…please turn off the faucet upstairs.
How are all of you? A new month is upon us. Hope everyone is staying warm and healthy. Speaking of sickness. Our classroom like others are experiencing more illness. Some students have been absent numerous times. If that is the case, please drop by and collect past due assignments and a small text to me or email letting me know how my child is doing. Believe it or not, I truly get concerned about my little ones. I want to know how they’re doing. Please discuss with me how we can get these poor little sick ones back on track with their math.
I’m sorry to say that volunteering in my room has pretty much come to a stand still. I have my two dedicated helpers every Tuesday and Friday and I don’t know what I would do without them. Please try to come in if you can. I could use help on the other days, especially now that I am planning on doing math centers MONDAY, TUESDAY, and THURSDAY. I’ve redesigned my room for centers. I’m still a bit of a rookie at it but please come in if you can.
Midyear Assessments are finally done. Just catching up on my absent kids. Tutoring on Tuesdays after school has resumed. Please come in for extra practice. We’re studying measurement, data collection and analyzes .
Review daily work sent home. Moby Max math will be done at school, so don’t worry about that at home. Have your students study their add and subtract math facts 10 min. along with extra math practice I send home. If you want more practice just email me or text me.
Colored Pencils (my students are going through them fast). So is my electric pencil sharpener which is just crawling along very slowly.
I need 10 spare headphones for my Moby Max center. I have a number of kids with broken ones or never purchased from the very beginning. Sharing them with Mrs. Fisher’s room can be disruptive.
Issues with my computer. Having a very hard time down loading pictures and cropping them properly for this blog. I take the pictures from my phone and try to download them to my blog and it goes at a caterpillar pace. Be patient while I take my computer over to the Apple store while they service it.
Have a good week everyone…and don’t be a stranger.
enjoying the holiday

You can tell I like kids.
Just look at what your little “Van Goghs” can do.
