The class has been examining rocks and pebbles over the past week. They will continue this study for the next couple of weeks. Many members of the class have been working on non-fiction writing. Some members of the class will eventually do reports on rocks.
My math students are continuing to study geometry, telling time to five-minute intervals, and working bigger subtraction problems (17-9). They also continue to work increasingly more difficult story problems.
The book fair is going on this week (February 3rd through the 6th) at the Springdale school. Wednesday night is family night and it’s open until 8 p.m. The rest of the week it is open 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Valentine’s Day is approaching and I will send home a list of students names this week.
