Classroom Details

In ELA we finished reading Because of Mr. Terupt this week. On Monday we will do a little reviewing, character comparing, and finishing up of work. Then students will take the test.

In writing we are finishing the fictional narratives. I have seen some good ideas from the students, but have also seen areas that we need to go back and work on again.

In spelling we will not have any words this week. We will spend time working on sentences instead.

In Math we started working on 2 by 2 digit multiplication. The students learned 3 different ways to multiply. We will finish up and review. Then the students will test at the end of the week.

In Science we have been working on matter. We have done some reading and experimenting with matter. This week we will focus on mixtures and solutions.

PTA Events

* Thank you to the PTA for putting on the Harlem Wizards game and for all who were able to attend. It was a fun night and I had a good time playing.

* Make sure to check out the Book Fair before/after attending conferences. There are a lot of great books that can be purchased and sales benefit the school.

* As part of the book fair each class was given a bag to gather change. The class with the most money donated wins a prize. All the money goes to a charitable organization.
