Friday News - Feb. 9

Happy Friday! 

In Math we finished up Chapter 9 (Properties & Equations) and our first math book! Next week we will get a brand new (thinner) math book -- volume 2. We will start fractions. Here is a short video I found to introduce fractions! 

In Reading we have been working on finding the MAIN idea and supporting details of the things we read.

In Science we are taking on a big project of making 'shoe box' ecosystems! I have divided up the students into the main ecosystems/biomes of the world. We will be creating a miniature model of these ecosystems. Next week we will work on these. I sent a note home that if you want to help send in some supplies to fill these boxes that would be awesome! But please feel no pressure to do so!! I have enough basic supplies and the students can always be creative with how they make animals, plants, and other scenery in their ecosystem. 
Here are a few examples I found online...

A look at next week....
