Welcome back from our long weekend! I hope everyone enjoyed the break. This week in Grammar class we will be reviewing pronouns. There will be a test on pronouns on Friday, January 22nd. Remember, review packets need to be completed and turned in by Friday, January 22nd.

In Math 5 we are perfecting our long division skills. The children are getting quite accurate when dividing larger numbers. I am very proud of their efforts.

In Math 6 we are continuing in our unit about Fractions. We learned how to subtract mixed numbers when the top fraction has a smaller numerator then the numerator on the bottom fraction. Check with your child to see if they can explain the process to you.

In Word Study this week EVERYONE got 100% on the test on Tuesday. Great job 5A! New words will be passed out on Wednesday. The test will be next Tuesday, January 26th. Please review the sentences your child has written. Mrs. Hull has asked the children to have 8 to 10 words in a sentence and to not start every sentence with "I".

We've had a very busy week getting back into our school routine. The weather has been so cold this week we have had to have our recess indoors. Even Coach Russ has held PE classes inside this week. The forecast is calling for some snow tonight - let's all keep our fingers crossed. Friday is our hot chocolate and cookie AR day. Almost everyone has made their goals for the last several weeks. The warm hot chocolate will feel really good on a cold winter's day! The semester ends on Friday, January 8, 2010. Report cards will be sent home next Friday, January 15th.
