Good afternoon! Check out some important dates and information below :).
5th grade will be taking their field trip to Wahsega in March. 5th grade teachers would like to invite all parents to an informational meeting regarding our field trip to Wahsega.

This week has already been a great week with the school spelling bee yesterday and a visit from the science machine today! I am sure they will all go home and try some experiments. Here are some more things going on this week.
Blue Math: We have started our geometry unit on 2D shapes. Students will need to know the attributes of the different quadrilaterals and triangles. This is a very wordy unit so please be practicing with them nightly. They have notes in their math notebook describing all of the shapes. We will test over this information next Thursday (1/21).
Yellow Math: We have started our unit on algebraic expressions. Students will learn about the different parts in an algebraic expression and how to solve an equation containing variables. We will also be learning about the different mathematical properties (distributive, commutative, etc.) We will test over this unit on Tuesday 1/26.
Social Studies: We have been learning about the Great Depression. In this unit, we will learn about the causes of the Great Depression, the effects of the Great Depression, and how the Great Depression ended. They will need to know about the presidents who were leaders during this time period. They will need to know about the New Deal and the programs involved in helping the Great Depression end. We will test over this information next Friday, 1/ 22.
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
