Math- This month we are continuing our study of fractions by learning about multiplying and dividing fractions. Remember that students need to know basic multiplication and division facts to help with these skills. If students have questions about homework, I am available between 7:00 and 7:40 in the mornings.
Science- This month we will begin our study of physical science. We will be learning about the states of matter and how they change. Later this month we will do an investigation about mixtures and solutions. For this investigation we need salt, flour, cornstarch, baking soda, plastic spoons, plastic cups, and dried beans. If you would like to donate any of these items, just send them in to Mrs. Garton's classroom.
Religion- We just finished another great Catholic Schools Week!! This month we will be focusing on the study of Jesus' healing work and the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Lent begins this month, so we will prepare our hearts and minds for these season of penance. Stations of the Cross will also begin every Wednesday afternoon during the season of Lent.
Thank you so much for being flexible with conferences this month! If you are having trouble finding a time that works for you, please e-mail me and we can work something out.
