The New Year is here, and I am looking forward to an exciting 2019. We will be working on responsibility and getting our reading minutes in every Monday and our Math homework turned in on time. This has been a challenge for us these last few months.
January’s Book Report Genre is Fantasy/Science Fiction/Fairy Tales/Fables. A Science Fiction/Fantasy book is one that could not really happen. (Many fantasy books have magic, wizards, or talking animals, and many science fiction books take place in Outer Space or in the future.) We will be doing a book jacket for our report. We will start these in class and they will need to be finished at home. The Book Reports are due January 31 or before.
We are starting our measuring unit. We will be learning the Customary Unit and Metric Unit. Please work with your student at home on their multiplication facts. Our next unit will be on Fractions and Decimals.
Please help your students remember to bring back their math homework.
We are studying Trappers and Explorers. We are also working on our Utah Program that we will be performing on February 28 at 2:00 p.m.. More information will come with that as it gets closer.
We just finished our Persuasive papers on Dogs and Cats.
We will be doing rotations for Science and Mrs. Cryer will be teachings us about Weathering and the instruments meteorologists use, signs of storms approaching, and how certain storms form.
We rotate on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at 2:20-3:20 and I am finding it has been hard as a lot of the students have been getting checked out and they are missing important information. If you could at all avoid that on Tuesdays and Thursdays that would be great!
