I hope everyone enjoyed another long weekend!

Spelling words this week:

Our focus this week will continue to be research and our Canada project.

Reading will be independent this week- focus on word pronunciation, fluency and comprehension.

We will be starting our rug projects next week- every student will need 1 paper towel roll or 2 toilet paper rolls. If you have any wool that can be donated it would also be appreciated.

We will be starting our unit on fractions this week.

We have started to look at Newton's Laws of motion. This week we will be looking at the second and third law. Next, students will have to design and conduct an experiment on one the the laws. This should be super fun!

We have started out unit on foods. We have been looking at the vocabulary for different foods and next we will be learning how to ask simple questions that you would ask when ordering at a restaurant. 

Have a good week!
