Friday, March 1st was Read Across America. Our school decorates our classroom doors. The students picked a Harry Potter theme and it turned out GREAT!! Students spent Friday enjoying a book of their choice to celebrate this day!!

Math- This week in math, students continued to work on Fractions. Students are now working on comparing fractions using a tape digram as well as a number line. 

Science/Writing- We are continuing to work on our research project, which is focused on life science. Students picked an animal of choice and will be researching their animals habitat, food chain/web, and adaptations. With this information, we will be writing a five paragraph essay. Student will also make a visual to go with their research. This should be an at school project, however they can work on the visual at home if they would like. We will be hopefully completing the project on Friday and then presenting the week before spring break.
