We are sad to be temporarily saying bye to Miss Kenney as she heads to Lincoln Elementary to do her student teaching. Each student made her a Tagul and you can see some examples here.

****Our Ravinia Concert will be on March 30th. Please join us to hear us play our recorders and sing to Gustav Holst's The Planets.

Math- We will be finishing up Unit 10 and then beginning to cover many different areas of math. Each student will be meeting in groups based on their NWEA scores for each of the 5 math areas. This week we will be focusing on Algebra and Data Analysis & Probability.

Reading- This week we will continue to work on vowel combinations, commas, fact and opinion, flashback, and multiple meaning words.

Writing- Students will be finishing their research on a topic of their choice. Students are presenting their information in blog posts, VoiceThreads, and Taguls. Be sure to check on our blogs to see their hard work!

Science- Our learning about simple machines continues and this week we will learn about the wheel and axle, pulley, lever, and the force gravity has on these objects. Next week we will be creating "Rube Goldberg" machines. Any toilet paper rolls, empty thread spools, or other building materials you may have are appreciated!
