*We will continue to work collaboratively with Desert Ridge Academy - Mrs. Amidei's students will be our writing tutors. Using Google Docs each student will have a real-time tutor assisting them in the development and editing process. I plan on blogging about it on my class blog at www.twetenedtechnerdo.wordpress.com. This will most likely be in a few weeks at the culmination of our writing project.
We're not finished with fractions, but yet we are. We'll continue to work on fraction skills as practice, but we're moving on to POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE NUMBERS and Graphing

*Missions-We've completed our mission reports and are reading, 'By the Great Horn Spoon! Written by Sid Fleischman. It's a gold rush adventure! This ties in very well with our unit on the Early History of California.
We're continuing our study of rocks and minerals.
GENIUS DAY is coming! Be on the look out for the date!!! You are invited to attend the presentation of your child's Genius Project. I'm hoping for a date around the last week of school. I will be having the kids start finalizing their projects for presenting over the next several weeks. It's been a fun process and even when they've presented it is something they can continue to explore.
