Students have math homework tonight. Some are struggling with the concept of dividing a whole number by a unit fraction or a unit fraction by a whole number.
These tutorials are available on Khan Academy. The videos are really useful for students to watch if they are feeling confused. Below each video is a practice opportunity as well as links to other videos on the topic.

Today our class received an outstanding from Mrs. Reagan recognizing Gabby as a Georgetown student that continually follows our school motto to Be Nice, Work Hard, Learn Well!
Way to go, Gabby!
I hope your families have been able to take some time to enjoy this beautiful weekend. On Friday afternoon, we did a fun craft activity with our kindergarten buddies. You should be so proud of the leadership and kindness your children demonstrate with their buddies. We ended the day with popsicles and some time with our buddies on the playground. Miss Hutichison took some adorable photos and posted them on her classroom blog. Click here to visit her blog and your your amazing kids in action!
As a reward for reaching 30 outstanding awards this year, I am providing a pizza for the class for lunch on Friday, Jan. 20. I will provide 2 slices of pizza per student as well as brownies. Students are welcome to bring a drink or an additional side from home if they need more to eat at lunch time. Please remember that Georgetown is pop free school.
