Good Morning Parents,
I hope everyone is have a great week. I wanted to let you know of some upcoming events as well as what we are doing in the classroom. I wanted to let you know that the 4th and 5th grade had a wonderful time at the African American History Museum. We received manycompliments about our behavior at the museum. It was a great day!
I can not believe we are already at the end of the 1st Quarter on Thursday. Where has this year gone! With the end of the quarter comes an end and a start to many of our units. In math we have started our decimal unit. The classes worked on adding and subtracting decimals last week and are learning about multiplying decimals this week. Next week, we will be working on dividing decimals. In social studies we are finishing up our unit on exploration with their explorers projects. These projects are due tomorrow! Next week, we will begin our unit on colonization of the United States. In science, the students are working on their element project making LEGO molecules with atomic foldables. Next week, the class will be working on states of matter. In religion, we are working on the 7 sacraments. This week we finished our novel Holes and will be watching the movie this week. Please send in the permission slip that will be sent home tonight tomorrow! We will begin reading the novel Bud Not Buddy next week. In language arts we are learning about pronouns and the writing process. A letter will also be going home about our class party on 10/31. Please send the money in for Ms. Nichols as soon as possible.
