Well, January has flown by.  Hopefully we can settle into the third quarter and a regular schedule again.  This week 4th grade will be working on adding and subtracting fractions..  This includes simplifying fractions, converting between improper fractions and mixed number fractions and decomposing fractions.  It's just fractions, fractions and fractions.  In science we began our unit on fossils.  We are going to be making actual models of different kinds of fossils.  A special shout out and thanks to Ms. Wilder, Victor's mother, and Ms. How, Jayla's mother, for donating air-drying clay.  We will put it to good use.  Fifth grade will be multiplying fractions all week.  In science we will continue with genetics.  Students are learning how some traits are genetic and passed down from parent to offspring though genes.  Other traits are learned or acquired from environmental influences.  Thank you to those parents who allowed students to bring those "Oh so embarrassing" baby pictures for us to compare traits.  Fifth grade is also working on the Stock Market Project.  This will be on-going for the rest of the year.

Some New Dates:
Report cards will be sent home Wednesday, January 31st
February Heart Family Projects are due February 5th 
A make up date for the awards assembly has not be determined yet.  I will let you know as soon as it is set.

Don't forget to check Friday folders and send those back on Monday.
