October 28 - November 1

We have been working on recognizing and naming polygons as well as measuring angles.  The students will be taking a practice test by mid-week and a final test on Monday, November 4th.  

We are underway with our Energy science unit.  Be sure to ask your child about the 8 different types of energy that we will be studying.

Coming Soon
The students are now working on a class newsletter.  This will be added to a tab on the class blog.  They will write short articles about what we have done or upcoming events.  Each student will have an opportunity to be an editor or a contributor throughout the year.

It's hard to believe that it is almost here!!  Be sure to check the zip code for Howell Nature Center (48843) when you check what to pack. Please email me if you have further questions.  Students will learn their cabin and travel groups on Monday, November 4th.


Just a reminder that we do not wear costumes to school for Halloween.
