Please send in 1 gallon milk jugs - clean and dry, no tops needed - for a Valentine's project. Since some students won't be able to bring them in, please send in more than one if you can. Thank you!
We try to go outside everyday for recess. Please make sure that your child is prepared to go out. At the very minimum, they must have a winter jacket and gloves. Since everything is melting right now, the playground is a mix of mud, ice and snow, so boots are always an added bonus.
BOOK ORDERS FOR MRS. LANGE'S CLASS ARE DUE FEBRUARY 5th!

Reading the Weather
Before we dove into the new topic, we did something called a "Teaching Carousel". They met with the group they switched with and they taught each other about their new topic. Students used the note-taking poster they created for their Research Team Book to guide their teaching. It was a great learning experience for them all.
What's the matter?
Study guide and papers were sent home on Thursday.
We will be learning all about matter next. This week we will be learning how to measure the volume of matter using a graduated cylinder through two experiments.
