Unit 10 Math Test on Thursday

We will be wrapping up our Unit Long Study of the concepts covered in Unit 10 on Wednesday. Children receeived a study guide on Monday and should be prepared to use a transparent mirror, determine whether an object has been translated, rotated, or flipped. Although understanding how to add and subtract positive and negative integers is only a beginning skill, may kids have mastered the rules and are doing quite well with this! Please e-mail me if you have any questions.

Persuasive State Paper

The kids have been researching a state of their choice. They are then using their information to write a persuasive essay about why someone would want to move or visit there. Their thoguhts and ideas are quite entertaining. Look for these to come home in the about 2 weeks. We have learned about the three reasons why authors write - ask them about this (it's as easy as PIE) Persuade, to Inform, and to Entertain.
