BOOK PROJECTS- They were great

We have finished our first round of Book Projects. We saw some very creative projects and learned about some terrific books. We've included some of the book projects in our newsletter. The next Book Project will be due on April 10th. That is a ways off, but it's not too late to chose what book to read.


The NWEA Math test will be Wednesday, March 13th. Please help your child by making sure they have a good breakfast and a good night's sleep the night before. We have talked about doing our best even when the problems become difficult. All of the students have been working hard.

What's Happening in Math Right Now?

We are working on Unit 8 in math. This is a unit on area and perimeter. We are also working on terms that might come up in either the NWEA or MCA tests. The Everyday Math site above can give you a picture of what we are working on in Unit 8.

Our class website has many ways to practice. is a very supportive site. I've listed some of the areas to practice below.

Konnor Goes to Franklin

Our friend Konnor will be going to Franklin starting this week. We made a card for Konnor and had a celebration. Konnor sang a song for us and we sang one back to him. Then we all played Heads Up- 7up. A good time was had by all!
