In science, we will be continuing the weather unit.  Please have your child watch the weather forecast either at night or in the morning.  We will be having discussions in class about weather symbols, High and Low pressure, and fronts in class.  Discussions at home are always encouraged as well. :)  We will also start our weathering, erosion, and deposition unit this week.  Ask your child about the WED song.

Yearbook!!!

Hi Parents, 

If you have not yet ordered a 2017-2018 Yearbook now is your chance!  Print out this order form and send cash or a check (made out to Willow Creek PTO) with your child this week!  There are only a few days left to order and you do not want to miss out on our “If you can dream it, you can do it”  themed yearbook!

 

Thank you!

Yearbook Committee

In math this week, we will be finishing up our unit on fractions.  Homework came home on Friday (Math book pgs  539-540 and 597-598) and is due Friday.  We will be having a quiz tomorrow.  We will go over the quiz and review before our test on Friday.  A great way to help practice and apply fractions to their real life is have them help cook/bake using recipes or have them help in the garage using different size wrenches.  Have them find equivalent fractions for the amount needed in the recipe or the size wrench.  
 
In science, we will be finishing up unit 7.  A study guide went home on Friday.  We will be reviewing today and testing tomorrow.  We will start our unit on the Water cycle and weather.  Have your child start watching the weather forecast at night or in the morning.
