The Bennett Bulletin
Please provide ear buds or head phones for your child. We use the laptops at school and videos, music, and games can be quite distracting to others without them.
Your child has a new reading challenge for the last nine weeks. It should prove to be fun. Please look in the homework section of the binder for details.
In math we are working on decimals (adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing them alone, and in word problems. We continue our practice with fractions as well.
We are beginning a new rotation in science- weather. It's pretty intense. You will have a little meteorologist on your hands by the time we conclude the unit. Ask your child weekly what they've learned and you will be impressed with how much they know.
As a grade level, overall, each review section of every science unit test has been really low. We are encouraging students to bring home their science journals and review nightly a few pages in their journals with a parent. Please help us with this endeavor. Our class will start next week. There will be quizzes in class.
During social studies we covered events leading to the Revolutionary War. We will cover the actual events of the war in this coming nine weeks.
