## Book Fair!

We will have a book fair in the media center THIS WEEK (February 8-12th). This is a great opportunity to purchase books for your home library, and even great gifts for friends and family!

## Supply Needs

This is the time of year, we run very low on supplies. We have very few pencils, erasers, kleenex, notebook paper, and dry erase markers left to get us through the year. We are only half way through and if you would be so kind as to donate any of the supplies that would be great! Please send these in to your child's homeroom teacher as soon as possible.

## Earbud Donations

As you know we use individualized programs on our iPads and this requires students to listen closely to their own iPad. It presents a distraction when they do not have earbuds. If you would be willing to donate any amount of new earbuds (in original packaging) we would greatly appreciate this. You may send them to your child's homeroom teacher at any time. Thank you for your help!

## Math Topics

What will we learn?

This week, students will be using strategies to multiply whole numbers by fractions. This will help us solve problems that ask, "If we eat 1/2 of 13 pizzas, how much pizza would we have left over?"
