News From Mrs. Stevenson

Students are in book clubs and reading historical fiction. Ask them what book they are reading. Ask them what they have put on their historical timeline and character traits.
We have finished our informational writing, which will come home next week. We now will be working on grammar.
We continue with force and motion part two, which is Newton’s second law, in addition with our AWIM (the building of jet toys). Ask your child about their jet car.
Students are learning how to convert fractions with uncommon denominators so that they can compare them. Next we will learn how to add and subtract fractions, in addition to converting proper and improper fractions.
We will finish chapter 10 next week. Students should be looking at the text online 2-3 times a week to reread and review what we have been learning.
