In science this week, we will be starting our unit on soil, water retention, and natural resources.  

I hope you all have a good week!

Tissues

Parents, if you are out and about this week and are available to pick up some kleenex we could really use some. :-) Thank you!! 

Class Party- Badges Scanned

Parents,

If you have not had your ID scanned at Willow Creek for the 2018-2019 school year, you may stop by the campus before December 17th and have your ID scanned to save time waiting in line the day of the event.  Your ID must be scanned each school year. 

Reservations can be made by completing the Google form online https://goo.gl/forms/F5HMBu640ZQw3Zs62 .  Badges will be printed and available at a designated table when you arrive.  Visitors who have not made reservations will need to wait in a very long, time consuming line and could miss part of the event.  No exceptions will be made.

All visitors should be prepared to present a Photo ID even if you have made reservations.  Once you arrive for the event please check in at the designated tables outside.

In math this week, we will continue our unit on fractions.  We will be finding equivalent fractions, comparing fractions, and +/- fractions with like denominators. We will be having our first quiz on fractions on Friday.  Our fact check this week is mixed division facts.  

 In science this week, we are continuing our unit on light and thermal energy.  We will review light energy today and work on thermal energy the rest of the week.  Students will need to know that light travels in a straight line and reflects in one new direction.  They will also need to know the qualities of a good reflector. They will need to know what conductors/insulators of heat are and examples of good conductors/insulators.  We have been and will continue to take notes on these topics in their INB's.

 I hope you have a good week!

In Math this week, we are continuing Long Division. The kids are doing really well. Have your child practice some long division with you! I will post some easy long division practice if you'd like to print for them to complete. We will have a long division quiz #2 this Friday. Our fact check this week is basic division facts. We took a practice Monday and they placed it inside their yellow folder.
 
In Science this week we are wrapping up our Electricity and Sound unit. I will post the vocabulary to study, but it is also glued inside your child's science notebook. Also, they have been working on a power point with the vocabulary that is on their google drive. We will test over this material this Friday, Nov. 9th.

11/15 - Fall Pictures Retakes
 
This week in math, we are finishing up our multiplication and division unit.  We have been working on review pages in class this week and will finished them up today.  We also had our math test today. Tests will come home in Wednesday folders. Biggest mistakes on this test is determining whether to multiply or divide in a given word problem.  I tell them to determine if they are given the total/whole and they are trying to split that up (divide) or if they are trying to get the total/whole(multiply).  Read the problem once, then go back and read it again, now underlining and circling the important information.  The fact check this week is divide by 3, 6, 4, 8, 9, 7. 
 
In science this week, we are starting our light and thermal energy unit.  They will need to know that light travels in straight lines and can reflect off different types of surfaces.  Thermal energy, like electrical energy, has conductors and insulators and what happens when something conducts/insulates heat.  They will also need to know that objects can have/use more than one type of energy.
