Homework + Simple Machines!

Tonight's homework:

- Read for 20 minutes with a good book!
- NO reading log this week!
- Math review ("Math Test" pages)*
     *We will have our 3rd quarter math test tomorrow!  It will primarily cover fractions, multiplication and division.  That said, there will also be a few questions on graphs, place value and addition/subtraction.  It is a cumulative test designed to show us how much the student is retaining the information that has been taught.  A classwork "review packet" went home today, it is quite lengthy and some students finished while others are not close to finishing.  Please look it over and try a few problems tonight!

Students used 3 of these simple machines to move a plastic cube 30 cm.

Tomorrow we will be presenting our Simple Machines projects to both parents (8:30-9:00 a.m.) and 2nd grade students (10:45-11:00 a.m.).  All are welcome to join us in celebrating the completion of this exciting project!  I will be videotaping the presentations for those that cannot attend - just let me know if you'd like to see them at a later time.

Thanks for reading!

Only one more day until Spring Break!

- Mr. B
