I'm very excited to math this week because I will be showing you a new material you can use to make working with algebraic expressions and equations a snap: algebra tiles. I will show you how to use these tiles this week, and you will have plenty of time to practice during our work time. I will not assign math homework,
You can also try your hand at modeling expressions using this online algebra tile activity.

In science, we will continue our research concerning currents and waves. Please work with good purpose to complete your Seafood Feast choice sheet by Friday. You can use your notes that we took last Monday and Tuesday to study for your upcoming test. Here's another copy of the notes if you need them:
There's just a few more items to keep in mind this week:
1. Scoliosis screenings will take place in the nurses office on Monday. There is nothing special you must do to prepare for this, it is literally a 5 second examination. UPDATE: Scoliosis screenings have been rescheduled.
2. I will not be in school Wednesday because I will be attending a workshop on Elba Island concerning natural gas. The workshop will help me prepare upcoming lessons for you about natural resources. I'll be sure to take a lot of pictures and share them with you when I return. UPDATE: I will also be absent on Tuesday to attend a last minute meeting.
Finally, here's a pic from our work with Ms. Kirsten's class. We spent some time Friday afternoon helping the younger students with their nature studies by making leaf rubbings.
