Now on to Academics....

MATH - we are finishing up Unit 6 - Whole Number Operations and Number Stories. We will have our Unit test at the end of this week or early next week. As usual we will complete a pre - test the day before the real test is given.

*Students will also have their mid year timed fact test (+, - ) this week also. Please review the addition and subtraction facts with your child. Flash cards are a wonderful way to practice.

Biography News

Your child has a biography project coming up. Most of it will be completed at school. Your child will read a book about a famous American. (They will be given a list of choices). They need to read the book, take notes and finally complete a slide show on their famous America. Information will be coming home soon.

Student of the Week
If your child has not been student of the week, they will shortly. We got a little off track from our schedule. All students will get a chance to participate.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me. Thank you for all you do.
