The cold temperatures won't last long as we head into this week; our research on algebra and tides will be heating up, too!
Last week in math we practiced writing and reading expressions. This week we will be solving equations. We will be focusing on solving addition and subtraction equations. Once we get a handle this skill, we will move onto multiplication and division next week. Because of our field trip Wednesday, we will NOT have a quiz this week in math. You will have homework Monday and Tuesday evening, though. In addition, remember to complete your weekly Compass Learning requirement by Friday. You will NOT have a math journal to complete this week. Here is a sheet you can use for extra help with solving equations:
In science, we will continue our research about tides. Complete three choices from "Tides of Thanks" by THURSDAY. You will also be having a quiz on tides Thursday. Use your study guide to help you prepare.
Please keep in mind the following additional information about this upcoming week:
1. I will be having tutorial this Monday and Wednesday for those of you who normally attend this extra math practice.
2. We will be having a field trip to the water treatment plant this Thursday. Please hand in your permission slip by Wednesday. This is a free trip.
3. Friday is a dress down day for $1.00. All proceeds will benefit diabetes research.
4. We will be starting a special project Friday. Everyone will need to bring in a shoebox for this activity. Please bring one in by Friday. You'll LOVE what we are going to create with them!
See you tomorrow morning,
