**Math**

**NEW: **The first division fact timed test has been graded and is going home in the “Friday Folder.” If your child does not have theirs, it most likely is on the “Math Master’s” wall. I have recorded the grade and it is on infinite campus. The 2nd division timed test will be on Thursday (2-22-18). The best score out of the 3x will be recorded. If the student scored a 95 % or better on the “baseline,” they do not have to take the timed test. ** *** *
**NEW: **ALL students have received the 2nd half of the Pearson math workbook. We reviewed topic 8 lessons 5 & 6. All students can begin work on Topic 9. (**Understand Addition and Subtraction of Fractions**).** **
- All
**“ready learners” **know & understand that they can work ahead on upcoming lessons. **That means that they can move onto topic 9 **(**Understand Addition and Subtraction of Fractions**).** **lessons **1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10**. If a student comes to a question that they don’t understand, they can ask at home, they can simply mark the problem and when we come to that lesson then we can revisit that problem they were struggling with, or they can come to me during class when the students have time to work independently on the current lesson we are working on.* ** *
**NEW: **Topic 8 test has been moved to Wednesday (2-14-18). In order to prepare for the test, math text pages 455 & 456 and pages 457 & 458 are great pages to study.** *** ** ***ALL students are encouraged to try the “Higher Order Thinking” problem regardless if it is even or odd.** * ** *** **** **

**Science**

The students continue to work on their “Invention Convention” group activity. the students also are continuing their work on their land form research paper. They can access the paper on line through google classroom.

**FYI: Valentine’s Day is on Wednesday 2-14-18. All students have a classroom list of all the students in their homeroom. If a student is planning on passing out cards, it was suggested that it would be nice to have each student receive a card from that person. Also, the students should have some type of container, bag, or box to place their cards that they receive from their peers into. The student can decorate the container at home and bring it in on Wednesday 2-14-18.**
