Way to go on our practice DWA today and the actual one for special education, everyone!  You should all be proud of all your efforts, and I know you will all do great on it on Monday!

Here are some videos and pictures from our magnets unit over the past couple of days.  The kids particularly enjoyed investigating how magnets can repel without touching, and attract, based on their poles, through designing cars with 2 magnets, a Matchbox car, tape, and a ruler.  Enjoy the videos and pictures at the end of this post!

1) Math (unit 8 review): p. 369 and 370 from the book. Also, redo any low scoring quizzes–the unit test is this week!!  Additionally, you can practice plotting coordinates on a quadrant graph with this  sweet alien game!
2) Read 20 minutes & get it signed–shooting for 100%
3) Missing work!
4) No spelling this week!  🙂

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!
