Students have been able to use the computer lab to work on typing skills. We are using a free on-line program called "Learn to Type- Big Brown Bear."
In science we finished up a unit on how rocks are formed- I sent a separate email with information on that unit. In a few weeks we will do a short plant unit, again using the Mystery Science website.
In social studies we have been reviewing map skills and land forms. This week we made a salt dough map of NYS which will be painted and labeled and brought home next week. We will do a short study of early NYS explorers next.
We have finished up place value and rounding in math. The children took a chapter test on Thursday- check folders for a small slip with your child's score. Next up is adding and subtracting larger numbers. Be sure to have your child practice multiplication facts at home. We take a daily timed fact test- your child can tell you what their "bubble number" is on the fact test. That number is the set of facts he/she is being tested on.

Have a great weekend!
