News From the Mobile Command Center of Mr. Whicker
Dear Bacon Bulldog Parents - Students have arrived back at school, and, along with a few tears and lots of excitement, we are ready to start the year! We have been excitedly waiting for this last piece of the puzzle to be in place and now it's time to start “Making It Count for ALL Our Learners”!
Primary News - 1st Grade
By the time you receive this newsletter school will have begun. The start of the school year brings about building relationships and developing independence. In addition to celebrating our uniqueness, we work on learning and understanding how our classmates and/or peers are different from us. This is taught through our social studies and math curriculum. First graders also learned about one another through their ‘Me in a Bag’ presentations. Providing your child with a water bottle is helpful on hot days. We do ask that you send only water. An optional healthy snack can be brought for afternoon recess. We look forward to an exciting year of learning!
Intermediate News – 4th Grade
Welcome to Fourth Grade! To begin our year we will be getting ourselves organized and acquainted with classroom and academic procedures. We are excited to begin work in our first reading unit called “Working Together.” This year, students will be working through a new math program, enVisionmath2.0. There will be a large technology component to this program so please be patient as we work through a wealth of information and resources. Along with our new math program, fourth grade students will be writing narratives and learning the five regions of Colorado in social studies. That unit will conclude with a hands-on activity creating salt dough maps of our state! We look forward to getting to know your child and to having another GREAT year in fourth grade.
Specials News — Art
We have a couple of traditions in the Bacon Art Room. One is the beginning of the year self-portrait that all students in the school draw. You won’t see these until your student is in 5th grade or if you are moving to another school (if you know that you’ll be moving, please let me know so I can round up all your students artwork). I keep all the self-portraits in a file cabinet in the art room, and I love showing off the growth in ability from year to year. The second tradition is the “Loved One’s Wrap-Up”. During the year, I save all students artwork in boxes that live on top of my cabinets until the week before Mother’s Day.
