The Holiday Journal project is due this Wednesday, December 17th!

What's Up?

This week, we began learning about fractions in Math. Specifically, we reviewed finding equivalent fractions and we began to learn about how to add fractions with unlike denominators. Also, we wrapped up our World War 1 unit, and your child has a test over this material Monday, December 15th. We finished researching an animal for our Writing and Classification unit and we will be writing our research paper this week in class. In Reading, our focus is answering questions by using the question in the answer and using the text to support our answer.

Up Next...

This week will be a busy, but productive week. We will work on adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators and they will have a quiz over this on Thursday. In Science, we will be reading about invertebrates, and in Social Studies, we will be working on a scrapbook project. We will also have fun using Science inquiry skills to make ornaments.

Your child must have 140 ALEKS concepts completed by January 6th, or they will have to miss recess to stay caught up.

Please send in your Pop Tops for 4-H. Our meeting is this Tuesday!

Class Party

Our class party will begin after the Sing a Long Friday around 10:30. I sent home a note Thursday with the information about the party. Please let me know if you did not receive a note, or if you have any questions. Remember, students may not check out before 11:30am.

Congratulations to Olivia, who was named November Student of the Month.
