I hope everyone had a nice long weekend. On Thursday boxes went home to collect money for our service learning project. Students are collecting the money to help children in our community for cancer research. As students collect money they can bring it into the class to be turned in. On Tuesday students will be given two flags to decorate for their international festival country. This will be due on Thursday. For Wednesday students will be taking their maps social studies test. Also in social studies this week we will be researching for the international festival. In science students will be presenting their animal projects that were due last Thursday. We will be starting our next unit on matter later in the week. In math we have begun our new unit on fractions. In ELA we will begin wrapping up our unit on the mystery genre. A study guide will go home later in the week for a test next week. Students received new spelling words and will be tested on them on February 28th. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to let me know.
