What's Happening?!

Math: We have been working diligently on representing fractions and equivalent fractions with models. This week, we will wrap that up with an at-home math project. I will be giving the kids directions on Monday. The project will be due on Friday. We will move into finding equivalent fractions by multiplying and dividing. There will be a quiz on equivalent fractions on Thursday. Timed multiplication fact quizzes on M/W/F as usual.

Reading: On Monday, we will be doing an activity involving Ruby Bridges. We will compare and contrast two texts on the same topic. We will continue with point of view on Tuesday. Lit Circles will meet Tuesday and Friday. Don't forget that your child should be reading 15-20 minutes each evening. AR cut date for the 3rd quarter is March 9.

English: With the snow days, we have not wrapped up Chapter 5 yet. We will do so this week and test over it on Thursday. DOL quiz Friday.

Writer's Workshop: MLK activity on Monday, constructed response

Spelling: more r-controlled vowels, tic tac toe due Thursday, TEST Friday

Religion: verse to be memorized by Thursday. I am in need of shoeboxes for a project we will do at the beginning of Lent. If you have a couple to send in, that would be great!
