We started our new and very short math unit today!  (the test is this Friday!)  We also got to do science experiments for the first time!  Happy Monday!  
By the way, we are missing homework from many parents from conferences!  🙂  If you can, please send in or email a letter for your child reflecting on his/her conference.  I was so proud of all our students’ efforts on their first-ever student led conferences–it’s great to see students taking ownership over their learning and discussing it in meaningful ways!  

1) Math (4-1): p. 91 all, p. 92 evens. Redo low-scoring quizzes!
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!! 
3) Spelling: due on Wednesday
4) Finish the rough draft of your informational essay at home if you’re not quite done!!

Items of Business
*Class Store: If you have any extra soda, candy, trinkets, jewelry, or toys that you would like to donate to class store, please send it with your child!  We would like to do one more often to serve as a motivator for positive behavior!
