We are writing symbolism paragraphs.  In the novel Bud, Not Buddy, the main character carried around a suitcase of items that helped symbolize him as a person.  We are writing about things that symbolize us.   


States and Capitals

The children will be given the challenge of learning all 50 states and their capitals.  The children that learn them will get to attend a special party and be recognized at the end-of-the-year awards assembly.

This Friday (3/24), the leadership class is putting on a St. Patrick's Day Dance for the fourth and fifth graders.  The dance is from 1:45-2:30.  The students can wear green and bring money for drinks and snacks if they'd like.     



Last week we learned how to add and subtract mixed numbers with unlike denominators.  This week we'll continue to review what we've learned and work on patterns with fractions, practice addition and subtraction, and use properties of addition.




This week we'll continue reading in our literature circle groups.  We're also going to read different articles in Time For Kids and catch up on our reading from the social studies book.



The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. –Dr.Seuss
