We had a great week, a week where we had five full days of school with no subs or interruptions. I had a great time, and I hope the kids did too. We had the governor come in and read today, which was a great honor for our school.
The class used this week to practice using context clues to determine the meanings of words they didn't know. I continue to be impressed by their level of thought and the drive that they have to improve their reading skills.
Biographies are due in one week! We have been spending lots of time writing a practice one as a class, so they should know what to do! Remember that the poster AND the packet are both due on Friday but can be turned in early.
Fractions are upon us! This week we did a little review before we move on to the harder areas like adding and subtracting mixed numbers and improper fractions.
We are still on a geometry break from science. This week we learned all about shapes, their names, and their properties.
Economics is still our focus here, and this week we specifically concentrated on the ideas of importing and exporting.
