*Students are asked to study multiplication or division facts every day. Please look for a math fact Study Log coming home on Monday. While there are many ways for students to practice and master the facts, I have come to see that the old fashioned way, using flashcards and being drilled by a parent, has the best results. I will try to give timed drills daily. There will be a test every Thursday (0-10's). Some students have already mastered the multiplication facts and should now be studying the division facts.
Science: Begin the unit on Rocks and Minerals
Below is a link to a webquest your child will complete. Parts 1 and 3 can be done at school or home. Part 2 will be done at school. I will provide more details soon.

Congratulations to Lena, our Citizen of the Month!
Please check your child's planner every day. He/She should be writing down homework assignments. Please also look at the front of the planner where I record "checks".
Not everyone got the chance to present his/her Black History projects on Friday...we had a very busy day. We will finish up on Monday and Tuesday.
Last Friday students worked in groups to compete in a Marshmallow Challenge, a STEM project. I will post pictures soon.
