What's happening in our classroom...

WELCOME BACK! We are so excited to get going in 2020! We have so much to accomplish together from now until the end of May!
Please be sure you are practicing basic multiplication and division facts for at least 15 minutes each evening! You can use your Math Reflex games on any device from anywhere! Reflex is a great tool that only practicing basic fact fluency!
We will continue with our fractions unit that we started before the break. Our focus will be on comparing and ordering fractions with like and unlike numerators and denominators. Please ask your child each day to teach you what we learned in class. This is a great way to review what they are learning in class! 
In science, we will be working on thermal and light energy to finish up the forms of energy unit we began before the break. We will be testing next Tuesday.
