Welcome to Mrs. Hall's Hoppers classroom page!

 

Hopper's Happenings ‎(Weekly News)‎

  • Week 4
    This week we practiced our scientific skills through another exciting experiment.  The Hopper Scientists made predictions and observations in their science journal.  We practiced good safety while testing our hypothesis.  Take a look at the fun!

    Milk and Soap Test 2


    During Social Studies we continued to talk about what makes a good citizen.  This time we looked at fables to identify characteristics of a good citizen.  We learned about the Mouse and the Lion, as well as the Ant and the Grasshopper.

    In math we continued to build a strong numbers and operations foundation through skip counting, making numbers in many different ways and using tools to count and add in real life situations.

    Our highlight this week was finishing our read a loud story, My Father's Dragon.  Everyone was so excited to see the baby dragon get rescued off of Wild Island by Elmer Elevator.  The Hoppers decided we need to have a special day to celebrate the ending of our first chapter book.  On Friday we decided to recreate the baby dragon using clay.
      
     

    Next, we took a trip to our own "Wild Island" in the preserve.  We looked for wild animals and discovered a few.  We carried our food in Elmer Elevator's knapsack, tangerines.  Thank you to Mr. Hance for leading the adventure and teaching us about safety in the preserve.  
          

    We even got to taste a lollipop similar to the ones Elmer used to help build his Alligator bridge across the river to save the baby dragon.


    Next week we will be talking about properties of matter as we continue to be scientists- exploring, observing and collecting data.  We will be working on short e patterned words in spelling and learning how to write a beginning to our stories. We will also be talking about U.S. symbols.

    2017-18 Student Pick-up Authorization Form - Please Complete for All Students at LME
    It is time to to collect pick-up authorization information for our students via an online form to ensure we have this information readily available, particularly if/when we need to implement our parent/student reunification plan due to an emergency. Anyone who you might possibly ask to pick-up your child for any reason (siblings, neighbors, relatives, co-workers. etc.) should be listed on this form. Anyone not listed on the online form or student registration form will not be permitted to pick up your child for any reason. We ask that one parent from each household complete this form as soon as possible.

    This information will be kept confidential in the office. If you have any questions regarding this form, please contact the office at 512-464-4300. Thank you for your help with this matter.

    Idiom of the week: #5Cut it out

    When the Wordly boys were having fun tossing the colorful; fall leaves up in the air, their grouchy neighbor came outside and told them to cut it out. He did not want leaves messing up his yard.

    Means: stop what you are doing because it is bothering someone

Problem of the Week

  • Problem Week 5

    Joey wants a double-scoop ice-cream cone. The store carries 3 flavors:

    • Chocolate

    • Vanilla

    • Strawberry

    Joey needs to think of all the possible ice-cream combinations before making his decision.  Using these 3 different flavors, how many double-scoop combinations can be made? (Hint: don’t forget 2 scoops of the same flavor!)
