Swafford News

Week of September 19, 2016


Thank you to the parents that read the newsletter last week and emailed me! I think your children were pretty happy I gave them 10 BB for such little work on their part! :)

This week we will start order of operations. PEMDAS, or Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally as I learned it waaaay back in the day, :) is the way to remember Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.


We will be getting in to the lab in our new chapter in science! Tomorrow we will take a tour of the science lab and learn all about lab safety. Then we will start the next chapter on matter, which is chapter 3 in our book.
