# Bearden's Dragons

## Thank you

Thank you for helping out in so many ways for our school. Helping in ways such as sending in socks for Socktober, sending in food and organizing the Thanksgiving Baskets, sending in food for our Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and helping make our Class Tree decorations makes our school a Community. The unseen help at home of making sure homework/studying is finished as well as having your child read at home daily gives your child a solid base for learning.

## Math

Multiplication and Division with Fractions is our Unit 3 learning. Again, fluently being able to calculate the basic multiplication tables is necessary when working with Multiplying and Dividing Fractions. We are learning how to Divide Fractions this week. Our Unit 3 Test will be Monday, December 14th. We will jump right into Multiplying Whole Numbers and Decimals next.

## BrainPOP

When your child logs into BrainPOP, the login is student bre. Their ordinal number goes between the t and the b. For example, the third student in class would use the login student3bre. The students' password is the student ID number.

## ELA - Persuasive Writing

Our first Persuasive Writing is wrapping up this week. The debate whether to use Bottled Water or not is the topic at hand. Ask your child what they think about the subject.

## ELA -Making Inferences

We are doing a few more lessons on Making Inferences before Winter Break. Inferences are clues in the text that have Implied Meaning. Students are learning to use Background Knowledge + Text Clues to Make Inferences.

## Science and Social Studies

We are working with Our Solar System and Early Exploration of our world.

I think this link is usable. I changed the share settings.
