WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
I hope everyone had a safe break and wonderful holidays. If your child has yet to start working on their science project, please remember it will be due on the 19th of February. They will need another trifold board to showcase their science fair project. Today we reviewed the difference between an independent, dependent, and a control variable in an experiment. Tomorrow we will go through the entire scientific process in a miniature experiment with the class so the students can have an idea of what they should start doing at home.
I will be sending home book orders for those who are interested. If you do not wish to look through the flyer and would prefer to shop online, visit clubs.scholastic.com and my classroom ID is THKDQ. The books would be shipped directly to the school and I would then send them home with your student. There are many books available each month for only one dollar, so take advantage!
BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA
Students completed a novel study before break. I will not be assigning homework this week, but I am giving those who are missing their chapter questions a chance to take the ones they are missing home and complete them by next Tuesday. Please check powerschool and see if your student is missing a chapter or two so they can be working on these at home. Thank you!
Please sign up for items to add to our class's New Years Resolution gift basket for Winterfest. Any healthy goodies would be much appreciated. Thank you!
All report cards were sent home with your students today in a sealed envelope. Please ask your student for their report card when they arrive home so you can review their grades. If your student left early, their report card will be mailed to you, and you should receive them before you get back from Thanksgiving break. Be safe and have a great week off!
The Thanksgiving Food Drive is ending on the 16th of November. The only items that are accepted are listed on the flyer above.
There are 3 more Camp Surf information meetings on the calendar. Remember, you must attend one of these in order to go to Camp Surf in May. They are at various times to hopefully better accommodate your busy schedules.
There will be a math test on Monday the 15th of October. We will be finishing up the math lessons tomorrow and then review on Friday. I will be grading the math workbooks on Friday during peaceful playground, so students are encouraged to take home their workbooks and finish any missing pages. Students can take their math book home over the weekend to prepare and I will remind them. The concepts they have been studying include variables, constants, coefficients, the order of operations, and the distributive property. They should also be familiar with the associative and commutative properties.
