February 5: TCAP Writing assessment.  Please review your child's writing with them.  We are trying to emphasize a beginning, middle, and end in every story as well as details, good verbs, adjectives, and good vocabulary. 
                                                   
                                     ***SUBJECTS***                          
Math:
   Multiplcation facts are still being emphasized.  Mrs. Johnson needs all students to know them very quickly.  ALL students must practice daily at home. 

Students are also working on multiplying 2 digit by 2 digit numbers.  Please practice any problems that are in their math spirals at home!!

Suggestions:
      give timed multiplication tests
      give problems orally in the car, store, etc.

Don't forget about addition and subtraction facts review!

SCIENCE FAIR INFORMATION:

The science fair is right around the corner.  Miss Mitchell knows that plans may change between now and February.  If this occurs, please just write Miss Mitchell a note as quickly as possible or e-mail her.  

Please keep the science fair packets because they do have very important information that you will need to complete this project!!

Remember that each science fair project must have a journal or paper turned in on the day it is due.  Also, the journal is not the data that is to be on the board.  The data is given in the form of a graph or chart of the information found.

Students need to study their vocabulary EVERY night.  The schedule for W.W. homework is listed in the cover of the W.W. book as well as below.


Remember your W.W. study skills - Make flashcards or
