Classroom News

We are busy, busy, busy!  In ELA we are taking district unit tests including writing.  Adding and subtracting fractions is what we are working on in Math--and that unit test is next week, and in Science we are making dioramas to model the 4 spheres of the Earth. 

Vocabulary Day
Man, was this fun!  We had students dressed up as "Option", Uniform", "Rainbow", as well as colors and hues.  It was fun to see all the new words paraded around the school. 

 PTA Fall Festival
It sure was great seeing so many families enjoying the Holiday Spirit at the Fall Festival.  I think I passed out at least 2 big bags of candy!  It was fun to see the costumes!

I did not send any homework home in last Friday's Folders.  Instead, enjoy the long weekend with your families.
