Welcome to Room 30's Class Website
Yes! Spring arrives this month! March is scheduled to come in like a lion and out like a lamb. The weather is warming, birds are chirping, flowers are breaking through the soil, and allergies are going crazy!
This month we welcome our Dr. Seuss readers for Read Across America Day. Thank you so much to all those that were able to participate in this event. Appropriately we also have a Bookfair scheduled for March 8th. The class will also be going on a field trip to the State House and Old Barracks Museum in Trenton. This trip ties into their Social Studies unit of study. Ask your student if they could find the symbol an artist put on the sculpture that represents our first woman governor in New Jersey. A "bag" lunch (no glass bottles please) is necessary for the trip as we will be eating our lunch there. Don't forget to change your clocks and "Spring ahead" one hour on April 12th.
In Math we have begun work in fractions. Students are renaming fractions, simplifying fractions, finding equivalent fractions, determining common denominators and much, much more. If you find your child is having problems simplifying fractions please check out Hutchinson's Pods on my class web site's menu. The classes have a Math Project due on the 20th of March. Instructions and a rubric have been added under Forms on Rubrics on the lefthand side of this page. Fraction work, perimeter, area, and angles will be our main focus throughout March and April.
I will continue to post assignments on Tenmarks for students to complete from time to time. Notice of assignments will be indicated on the class calendar as well. Remember, you may print out any certificates that are earned and I will post them on the wall in our classroom.
Please check in from time to time to make sure you are aware of any school events. Homework and upcoming events continue to be posted on the class website's Calendar page. If you are unsure as to the day's assignment you can find the assigned work under the date it was assigned.

Great to use to look over the lesson that was taught that day on Animated Math Models. Also very helpful if you forget your homework, the page is right there on your computer just write the answers down on a piece of paper!
