Happy New Year!!!
We are kicking off 2016 with Cluster 3 - Decimals and Fractions. We will focus this week on Decimal place value. It is very important to have a strong grasp of place value before we start decimal operations. We will build on the students' conceptual understanding of numbers and operations throughout the cluster.

We will also analyze different techniques that are used in Media Literacy such as images, text, music, video, and interviews.
HOMEWORK: Read "The Zoo" (passed out in class on Monday) and use your coding strategy to track your thinking as you read. Then, answer the questions on the back. Due Friday!
Words to Know
- Please let your child's teacher know if they will be going home with another student or going home another way (ex. carpool - walker)
- We do have pencils on hand for students when they don't have one, but they are dwindling away quickly! Please help remind your student to be prepared with supplies when they come to class.
