February 18 – February 22
I hope everyone had a great long weekend!
Keep sending in those Box Tops!!!!!!
Six Flags Reading Logs are due by February 20th.
If your child is participating in the Fatherhood Essay Contest, it is due back to school by February 26th.  
All the kids write in their assignment notebooks daily.  This is done to communicate assignments, reminders, etc. with you.  Please go over your child’s assignment notebook and sign it each day.  If you notice any materials not coming home, please notify me right away.  We complete the assignment notebooks together and pack up materials together.  If your child needs further assistance, I will arrange for them to check out with me each day.
Looking for fun, extra practice for your child at home?  In class, the students have been introduced to Raz Kids (username mbussema0), XtraMath, Freckle, Prodigy, Edcite and Typing.com.  A brief description of what we will cover this week is below.
ELA--- This week we will be reading and discussing Tops and Bottoms.  We will focus on theme, point of view, idioms, and writing quotations.  The spelling test will be on Thursday and the story quiz and quiz on using quotation marks will be on Friday.   
Students should be reading at home each night.  Your child should keep track on their reading log for Book It, a reading program through Pizza Hut.  Every day that your child reads 20 minutes, they should color in the picture for that day.  If they complete reading for the whole month, they will earn a free personal pan pizza.  I encourage all students to participate.
Math---Students will take the first two pages of the math test today.  We will complete the review pages today and they will then complete the test tomorrow. 
We will begin chapter nine on Thursday.  This chapter also deals with fractions.  This week will focus on comparing fractions with the same denominator. 
Please take a minute and ask your child if they know the difference between the numerator and denominator.  Some students are still having trouble.  The denominator (bottom number) is the total number of parts in a whole.  The numerator (top number) is how many parts are shaded or parts we are talking about. 
Students should study math facts each night.  If your child has not yet mastered all of their multiplication facts, each day they will take a 1-minute multiplication test.  As they pass one, they will move on to the next.  They will take multiplication tests in this order:  1, 2, 5, 10, 4, 11, 9, 3, 6, 7, 8, 12.  Please check in with your child to see where they are. 
Just as with multiplication, students will take a 1-minute division test each day until they have mastered them all.  They will take division tests in this order:  1, 2, 10, 5, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12.
Once students have mastered both multiplication and division, they will begin taking rocket tests to review these facts.
Social Studies- We will be discussing chapters 5 and 6 in our social studies book and doing activities to go along with those chapters.
