This week

Good afternoon!  This week we will be finishing up our unit on Force and Motion.  The test will be next Tuesday.  Study guides were due today for a grade.  We will go over these tomorrow in class.  Please study with your child at home.

In math, we will continue to work on measurement.  Please practice measuring things to the nearest inch, 1/2 inch and 1/4 of an inch.

Your child has a reader's response due in their reader's notebook about every two weeks.  Please check in with your child to make sure he or she is turning these in on time.

Please talk to your child about completing assignments on time.  There are a few students who are struggling with getting things completed.  If there is an issue with your child struggling with something, please let me know.  I believe most of it is due to them not filling out their assignment books daily.  :(  Progress reports went home on Friday.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know!
