Tiger Tail Celebration

We have filled up another Tiger Tail for terrific behavior.  As a celebration of this accomplishment, we will have electronic time in our pajamas on Thursday!  Please let me know if you have any questions!!


Hello!  It has been awhile since I have updated this blog!  I apologize for not keeping up with it.  I just wanted to let you know some highlights of things to come.

Literacy:  Due dates have been assigned for each student's Reader's Notebook.  We have gone over many examples, so the students know my expectations.  We will also be working on comparing and contrasting in both reading and writing.  We have discussed how to compare/contrast different texts.  We will also be doing some research on alternative forms of energy and the students will create a slideshow presentation for this.

Math:  We will finish up our unit about Geometry and have a test on Friday.  Please review the concepts that we have gone over in class.  Our next chapter will be about fractions.

Science:  We will build our own circuits tomorrow.  We discussed the flow of electricity today and will continue over the next few days.  The next unit will be about force and motion.

Rocket Math:  We practice our multiplication/division facts daily through Rocket Math.  Please touch base with your child about what level they currently are working on.  If the students are "on track" they should already be working on division facts.  Please practice math facts with your child at home.
