This week, students began working on their earthquake research project.  They've taken lots of notes and will soon be organizing all of their interesting facts into coherent, organized paragraphs.  For homework this week, students will be working on the "optional" portion of the project.  Whatever support you can give at home would be both helpful and appreciated.

We've been working on shapes and angles in math but I decided to send home some Math 4 Today pages for homework as they include such a wide variety of concepts.  This is good practice for the math test coming up at the end of the month.

Please remember that next week we will begin (and hopefully finish) the reading portion of the state test.  Students will go to the computer lab right after recess on Wednesday and Thursday.  Please make sure your child has a healthy snack to eat before recess.

Student-led conferences are less than two weeks away.  During the conference, you child will be sharing some work with you and we'll go over the goals set earlier in the year.  I'll also share the state reading test results with you as well as some other assessments.  Your child should have come home with a yellow conference sign-up form today.  Please return it as soon as possible; I assign conference times on a first come, first served basis.

Have a wonderful, partly sunny weekend!
