Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!! 

Book Reports:  Biography Book Reports were awesome!!  Thanks for your support!!  The next book report will be that of an Indian Legend!  Your child may google a story or check out an actual book from the library.  It will be due, December 19. 

Reading:  Please remember that your child needs to be reading at least 30 mins. each night!  15 mins. should be read out loud to an adult for vocabulary and clarification purposes!  A few students have still not returned their October Reading Log!  We have finished reading Hatchet, By Gary Paulsen, and will start Brian's Winter !

Spelling: Cleaner, cleanest, bigger, biggest, earlier, earliest, quicker, quickest, busier, busiest, rougher, roughest, heavier, heaviest, happier, happiest, lazier, laziest, Christmas, fractions.

Math: Students should practice multiplication tables for 10-15 mins. per night!!  As I said before, our students are struggling with the basic math facts!
6.0 Fractions and Decimals, 6.1 Equivalent Fractions, 6.2 Generate Equivalent Fractions, 6.3 Simplest Form, and Common Denominators, 6.4 Common Denominators.
Math Homework: Correlates with the lessons taught each day!

Science:  Soil and the "Soil Profile."

Social Studies:  Indian Tribes of Utah!  We wove belts, and dressed our Indian dolls. Bud and LaRee Garfield did an amazing presentation for us , on the American Indians!

Students will be making a Christmas present for you!  I have supplied everything except 1/2 yard of fabric!  The gift is a decoration for your home!  I would like all of the fabric to be here by this Friday, so we can get started!  The fabric needs to be able to be torn!  Otherwise, your student will have to cut out by hand.  Old levis or cotton shirts work well also.  Just so there is at least 1/2 yard, per student!  Thank You!!
