Our selection /vocabulary test, cold read, and spelling tests are on Thursday this week.  You can review spelling words on Spelling City at http://www.spellingcity.com/crees/. Lists are attached as a PDF.

Homework: Read AR 20 minutes each night. Finish weekly homework “Helen Keller” by Friday. Math homework (Fractions – Lessons 8.8, 8.9, Chapter 8 review and Test on Thursday) and Facts (multiples of 8) nightly. Friday: Spelling Test/Cold Read.  If you haven’t logged on to check your AR Home Connect yet, please check out this link: https://www.tvcsar.org/RenaissanceServer/HomeConnect/Login.aspx .

This week we will finish Chapter 8 (Understand Fractions) in Math. We are working on multiples of 8 facts.  When students master twenty-five facts in a minute, they will add a "sprinkle" to their ice cream cone in class. Our goal is to master x0-12 this year!

We are finishing Science: Earth and Stars (Unit 2) this week. ThinkCentral.com is an excellent online resource for reviewing and practicing vocabulary. We will test on Wednesday.
