Math:  We have been working on subtractiong fractions and extra help is available on Wednesday 12/18 until 3pm.  Test on subtracting fractions will be on Thursday 12/19.

ILA:  This is a Reading Log week 4 entries due on Friday.   Students will be presenting their Śpeed Talk’ book reports this week.  Students will have five minutes to introduce their book and highlight its finer points without giving away the ending in hopes of enticing other students to read the book too.  Students need to decorate their desk with items to help them with the things they want to discuss, note cards may be utilized but should not be read directly for the entire presentation.  Students have each been assigned a date to present their speed talk December 16-19. No Spelling this week.

Science:  We have begun discussing some of the many biomes on Earth.  With each biome students will receive a coloring page to complete for homework if not done in class.  In addition, each page will be graded for homework and students will need to keep all these biomes pages in their Science Folder in order to have them ready when it is time to add them all to their final biome project we will create in class for another project grade.  Each time a new biome is discussed in class I will assign students to reread the information presented in class and their notes for homework online Ducksters for Kids in order to be prepared for a possible quiz.
