Hello there everyone. Yes I know, week 5 is over but this morning it suddenly occured to me that last week came and went so fast! We finished our first unit in the reading test (this means next week is the unit exam), we began reading our second novel (Hatchet), continued work with decimals (test Tuesday) and even started learning about plate techtonics. Check out the powerpoint and links avaible on our website. There are a lot of really great animations showing pangea and sea floor spreading. On Friday afternoon, we recieved a special delivery...our new iMac! Debate is currently on as what the computer's offical name will be; I think Bob and Stanley were suggested Friday. We will begin training on the computer as soon as possible. (Thanks IT guys, you made my students - and my - Friday.) Thanks to everyone who participated in the magizine drive and the parent volunteer who helped so much.
Because next week is goal setting, we will not have our regular weekly assingments. Week 6 will continue after fall break. Please also send in any box tops as soon as possible.
