Week of March 18th

Wow! March is flying by.  Next week is 3rd quarter testing.  Fifth grade science is on Tuesday, Wednesday is reading and Thursday is math.  The end of the 3rd quarter is the 29th.  Until then 5th grade will be reviewing for the quarter test.  Topics covered on this test will be adding and subtracting fractions, multiplying and dividing whole numbers, multiplying and dividing decimals and multiplying fractions.  As time allows we will also be learning and practicing measurement conversions.  Today I gave each 5th grader a NC Science Coach book.  This book is the best study guide for the science EOG.  We will be working in this book until EOG time.  
      Fifth graders also received permission slips for the Fort Caswell overnight field trip.  More information such as packing and an itinerary will be giving out closer to time.  All money is due by March 22nd.  If you have a problem or concern about getting the payment made, please just contact me.  I'm sure we can work something out.  The reason we have the money due now is because we must pay for the charter bus and send a deposit to Fort Caswell.  
    Fourth grade is still learning about decimals.  They are relating decimals to fractions and how to compare decimals.  Topics covered on the 4th grade quarter test are comparing fractions, adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators, multiplying a whole number by a fractions and decimals.  In science we have finished rocks and minerals and are just reviewing.
