Math: We began working with changing fractions into decimals. The students were taught how to do this today in class and we will be continuing this throughout the week. They were told the easiest way to do this is to divide. They are NOT allowed to use a calculator to help them with this division. There will be a test on Monday.
Reading: New Wordly Wise words were given out today and students are working with suffixes. They will be reading a non-fiction text in small groups and looking into the text structures and organization.
Here's an important note from our school counselor, Mrs. Jones:
