Welcome back, everyone! I hope you all had an excellent Thanksgiving! We had a great day back–a couple highlights included a team building experience (some comments afterwards were: “You need to cooperate and use teamwork.” “You have to be communicators.” “It took concentration”), and discovering a couple big ideas in comparing fractions. See pictures of both below!
1) Math (5-2): p. 107 all, p. 108 all. Redo the unit 4 test and other low scoring quizzes!
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!!
3) Spelling due Wednesday
