A little information about your new teacher.......
This is my 19th year of teaching and my 13th year at Bush.
I am married and I have 2 beautiful Fur Babies (see below).
The little Shih tzu is Annabelle and the new addition to our family is Henry the yellow lab (he's not so little anymore).
I was born and raised Aggie ! WHOOP!
I also work at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in my "free time".
I've had many wonderful adventures throughout my life. I've swam with dolphins in Cozumel.
I've fed and played with the penguins at Moody Gardens. I even have some artwork they made me.
I've also had the opportunity to pet a sea lion!
Economics Fair projects are due today. Progress Reports will come home Tuesday. There will be a school assembly Thursday morning for the Spring Choir Concert, due to the schedule change, Reading Group Volunteers for 206 will not be needed.

Reading: Our story this week is Estela’s Swap. We will review story elements, summarizing a story and sequencing a story. We will take a reading comprehension test over short stories the week of May 1st – 5th. We have been preparing for this test for quite some time. We have read a several story selection pack and review together. Packet have come home in Tuesdays Folders, these packets are great to keep and review. We will also read and discuss different types of poetry.

Social Studies: We will hold our Economics Fair and present our posters. We will review our unit over Economics and take our test on Friday May 28th .
Math: Tuesday we have our Fractions Test. Students willl need to be able to partition objects and name the parts (ex: three fourths, one half, etc.), count fractional parts beyond one whole using words and recognize how many parts it takes to make one whole. For example, 7 fourths is the same as 1 whole and 3 fourths. They will need to identify examples and nonexamples of halves, fourths, and eighths and also, decompose two dimensional shapes such as cutting out a square from a rectangle, dividing a shape in half or partitioning a rectangle into two
identical triangles. On Wednesday we will revisit place value to 1,200 through the end of the week.
Science: This week we are still continuing our unit on Animal Characteristics. We will have our test on Friday, April 28th. Students will be taking home their Interactive Science Notebook today so that they can use it to study with. Please send it back with your child on Friday.
