Learning objectives this week...
Unit of Inquiry Theme: How We Organize Ourselves: The structure and function of systems and organizations and their impact on the economy, the environment and human-kind.

  • We will continue learning about the structure of opinion writing. 
  • We will be starting our literary learning with a book study on the book Tiger Rising. We will start by learning how to "read characters" by what they say and do. Please remember that students should be reading a minimum of 20 minutes daily. 
  • Students have been working in partnerships to create a board game that illustrates their learning during our 2nd IB unit. We will hopefully be able to start playing our games on Friday.
  • In math we will continue to learn how to use various visual tools to help us multiply (arrays, area model, distributive property & partial product). The 2nd quarter focuses a lot on multiplication, so it is important that students are fluent with facts. Please have them practice at home. We are going strong with our incentive program. It is called Multiplication Sundae. With each group of facts that they memorize, they will earn a part of an ice cream sundae. By our holiday break in December, we will have a sundae social and they will be able to redeem what they have earned.
  • We will conclude our learning about life after the American Revolution and how the founders had to reflect in order to make compromise. There will be a class task on Friday. Students will be given a study guide that they will use in class but will also be able to bring home to use during their daily 20 minute reading time.
Upcoming Events:
  • Tuesday Nov 13th 11:30-
    12:10 -Thanksgiving Feast.

About Red Ribbon Week:
Red Ribbon Week is a time for us to focus on healthy behaviors and drug and bully free choices.   The theme is “Life is your Journey-Travel Drug Free”

Red Ribbon week was started all across the United States in 1985 in honor of a United States drug enforcement officer who was harmed by people who sold drugs.  People started wearing and displaying red ribbons to show support for the fight against drugs. This month, October, is also National Bullying Prevention Month.

This week we will have special fun theme days each day to show our support and remind us of the fight against bullying and drugs as well as our decision to make healthy choices.
****Remember, You still have to wear standard school attire bottoms  (except for career dress up day)!!
 MONDAY-“Red Ribbon Day”-Wear a Red Shirt and get your Red Ribbon
TUESDAY-“Put a sock on Bad Choices”-Wear crazy or mismatched socks.
WEDNESDAY- “I can be anything when I am drug and bully free-My Dream Career Day”-Dress up as a career you want to be when you grow up.
THURSDAY- “Teasley Elementary School is PAWsitively Drug and Bully Free”-Wear Teasley Spirit wear.
FRIDAY- “Team up against Bullying and Drugs”-Wear a team jersey or shirt.



If you have any questions about Teasley’s celebration of Red Ribbon Week, contact the School Counselors- Mrs. S. Harris or Mrs. C. Oliver.

Career Day was amazing! Special thanks to Mr. Anderson for his time and for teaching us all about what an Executive Coach does.
