News to Know!

A short week this week, but there's plenty going on! Check out this week's newsletter to read the details.
Revolutionary War Museum
What We are Learning this Week
We will continue working with fractions in Math class this week. We will compare fractions in addition to creating equivalent fractions and renaming fractions as decimals.
This is an exciting week in Writing! The students will be putting the final touches on their Revolutionary War books and completing their projects (if they chose to do one). Thank you to everyone for helping your child at home. I imagine we ALL know more about the Revolutionary War than we did a couple months ago! The highlight of this unit will be our Revolutionary War museum which opens (and closes) this Thursday, January 21.
In ELA we have been studying narrative nonfiction. We will continue to use narrative nonfiction texts to study character traits, metaphors and similes this week.
Math Extension class will be used mainly as a chance to reinforce what the students are learning about fractions in Math class. A solid knowledge base of fractions is beneficial to have as the students advance through their school careers.
