 All three clases will continue reading the novel, Ungifted this week. Their final book challenge project is due on Thursday. They may either give a book talk to the class or write a 5 paragraph letter to me about the book. Many students have already finished this challenge, but for those who have not completed it, Thursday is the due date. Due to Field Day on Friday, the final spelling and vocabulary tests for Ungifted will be on Thursday this week. Please read 15 minutes and study spelling words and definitions every night.

 *** We have started to play a new game in our math classroom online called Prodigy. I have sent home the login information. Your student may login and work through the program at home. I have found that students are really enjoying this program and asking to play it often. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Your student will have their Everyday Math computer login information taped into the front of their planner. Your student also has their Moby Max login information taped into the front of their planner. This is a resource we are using in class weekly and your student would benefit from continuing program usage at home. 
Please be practicing your math facts - especially division -  at home as often as possible.

Our last week together will be C days - students will have social studies for approximately 40 minutes and science for 40 minutes each day. We will be cleaning out our materials, wrapping up poster presentations, and discussing graded work. 
I encourage students to use the moby max program at home on the computer to practice skills we have learned. Please contact me if your student needs a new log-in card.
