   What's happening this week   October 8th-12th

Math:  We are finishing our investigation on factorization and will have a quiz Monday.  We will begin investigation 4 introducing the distributive property.  This will be the last investigation of the unit and will be done by next Tuesday. We will have a unit test on Wednesday 17th. Then we will begin our next unit on fractional parts and fractional operations.

LA:  We are into our new writing unit and students will begin to work on a personal narrative during this week. We will also be working on author's tools of descriptive language and grammar of pronouns. Remember vocab/spelling packets are given out on Monday and due on Thursday.  We review those and test on them the following Friday. There will be these packets each full week of school until mid 4th quarter.  

Science: We start a more focused discussion of the experiment project.  Look for a handout to come home Thursday.  I will also attach the handout on the website both on this page and the homework page so it will be available to you. We will be having our SCIENCE FAIR
October 25th at 2:30 in the school cafeteria.
You will receive an invitation from your child (children) within a week but please put it on your calendar.  Each student will have his/her experiment trifold presentation up and will be ready to share information with all the visitors regarding their hypothesis, procedures and analysis of results. It is a great experience for all.
