Veteran's Day!

We had a great afternoon engaging with our veterans. Everyone had questions to ask, and we all learned a lot! We are so thankful for all of our veterans and all they do!

What's happening this week in Room 512!

Math-

We will continue to spiral review Geometry terms while we begin our next component of our unit: Geometrocity! Students will be building a city with geometry terms.


We will have Math Fact Mastery time tests this Friday, November 20. Please encourage studying math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) at home. If you are unsure what facts your child should be studying, please email me. I can also print out flashcards to study at home.


Social Studies-

We will be finishing Chapter 2, "Our Environment" in our Social Studies book. Our test will be on Tuesday, November 24.


Writing-

We are continuing our unit of Informational Writing on animals. Most students have finished their rough drafts. We will continue to edit and hopefully begin to publish at the end of this week.


Reading-

We will be testing Unit 2 Week 5 today. The rest of the week, we will review all the skills from Unit 2.
