## Valentines Grams!

Valentine's Day grams are NOW on sale! All of the proceeds from this student council fundraiser go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. If you want to buy a class set the forms are available at the front desk, or you can send money with you son/ daughter. Please see details below:

\$1 for a single sucker to be sent to someone of your choice

\$4 for a bouquet of suckers to be sent to someone of your choice. The suckers are tied together with a bow for added adorableness.

If your son/ daughter wants to buy Valentine's Day Grams they should bring their money to their homeroom teacher. The teacher will give them a form to fill out where they must put the students name and their teachers name for who will be receiving the gram. More information about this went home, but please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have. :)

## Math/ Science

This week in Math we continued to work on 3-digit subtraction and addition. At the end of the week, we worked on word problems with 3-digit addition and subtraction (mixed). Students had to decipher whether or not to add or subtract. We will continue to work on word problems with mixed 3-digit addition and subtraction.

Next week we will begin talking about time. Please start discussing with your child time by planning experiences so that they will understand the duration of an hour, 30 minutes, 15 minutes, 5 minutes, one minute, and one second. For example:

1. When your child brushes his/her teeth, how long does it take? (one hour, one minute, or one second).

2. When you eat dinner, does it take 5 minutes, one second, or 30 minutes? etc.

In Science this week, we talked about matter. We also discussed physical properties of matter such as: size, shape, texture, temperature, and flexibility. We also talked about solids. Next week we will discuss liquids.
