Basketball Jones

A wonderful assembly with Basketball Jones today! He had very cool tricks and taught us about showing kindness to everyone. We all know the "golden" rule but ask your child about the "platinum" rule!

What Are We Up To In Room 115?

Math

Continuing our work in geometry. We will be looking at properties and angles in shapes and where we find these in our world.


Students will have a quiz on Tuesday. They should have brought a study guide home this weekend to prepare!

Reading

Continuing with nonfiction. Students will be reading a variety of nonfiction texts during our reading block and learning how to respond to these texts. We will also be looking at the structures of nonfiction texts and how authors can use it to persuade us or make us feel a certain way.

Word Work

New words again this week!


Don't forget to ask your student what their new words are and what they're working on this week. :)

Writing

We will begin working on our project, researching and writing about the state of Indiana and how tourism affects the economy. Students will be researching different regions and working in groups to highlight the best parts of their regions.


This week students will continue to research the areas of tourism that are important in each region and the students will create questions they want answered and assign roles for each group member.

Science

We are beginning a new unit about Heat and Electricity. We are excited to be done with testing so we can start experimenting!
