In Writing, students are so excited to be completing Lab Reports. During this time, students learn how to write like Scientists. The overarching theme for Writing and Science is Balance and Motion. We are also studying Nonfiction Books in book clubs this week!
Fundations Unit 8 Test will be retaken 2/16. We are reviewing markings from Unit 7 and Unit 8 before taking the test again.
Unit 5 Math Test will be 2/27 and 3/1.
We have been practicing math facts with Rocket Math. Students who did not pass will receive a blank page to practice that night. Rocket Math will be done every day before students pack up. Our schedule is already so busy, to participate in Rocket Math for the day, students need to be prepared with a pencil and paper to complete at the time of the test.
As a reminder, Rocket Math is a program we use to support students when learning math facts. It is not mandatory according to the math program and the grades do not count on the report card.

You have access to the lessons that we learn, as well as games to practice skills that will be on the first assessment. Instead of having a review day, everyday we have been reviewing using the Math Boxes.
