Where you know what we know so we all know

Week of November 17, 2014

Quote of the Week

"The truest greatness lies in being kind, the truest wisdom in a happy mind." - Ella Wheeler Wilcox


This week we will be reviewing what we already know from this year and working on brushing up on those skills. We'll revisit PLACE VALUE, ADDITION & SUBTRACTION STRATEGIES, MULTIPLICATION, DIVISION, and FRACTIONS.


We will play a bit of catch-up this week in Science. We will wrap up our unit on "Matter and Energy" and take our unit test on THURSDAY. This week we will discuss CHANGES IN MATTER caused by HEAT. We will also discuss the difference between MIXTURES and SOLUTIONS.

Mixtures and Solutions


  • Homework for the week is the DAILY RIGOR 5. As I've explained to your child, 50 points of homework comes from turning in a completed worksheet. The other 50 points is given when answers are input into Edmodo. This will help greatly as we begin to graph the skills that we're struggling to grasp.
  • A BIG thanks to those parents who have been coming to SECOND TUESDAY. I hope it's been worth your time. If you'll keep coming, I'll keep hosting!

There will be NO SECOND TUESDAY for the month of December.
