Week of November 13th

posted Nov 13, 2018, 4:49 AM by Ella Frazier
    I hope everyone had a great long weekend.  I just want to say "Thank You" to any veterans or active military family members.  I truly appreciate your service and sacrifice.  
    This week in fourth grade students will continue to practice long division and will move to larger numbers, but with only a single digit divisor.  I'm teaching students a few different methods, so if they show you something "funky", it's just a different algorithm.  I will be teaching them the traditional method also.  In science we will continue with energy.  Right now they are learning about thermal energy and will move to sound energy.  Because of the short week student will not have daily word problems for homework.  They have a multiplication and division practice.
    In fifth grade students will continue to practice adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions.  I hope to introduce dividing fractions by the end of the week.  In science we will continue with weather.  Our topic this week is air pressure.  If possible, please allow students to bring a small, glass jar to school tomorrow.  We will be making barometers. Because of the short week student will not have daily word problems for homework.  They have division practice sheet.
