Week of January 4 - January 8, 2010

Weekend homework -


Complete the Science/SS/Art worksheet - the one on your clan animal.  You should have it in your clan folder but it actually involves information for all three subjects.

Our classroom looked so CLEAN this afternoon. Thank you to everyone for your great work in cleaning up and reorganizing your stuff!

Have a wonderful weekend!  

To respond to a question about the math homework. When I say show the work, you don't have to write out the entire question, just show how you go the answer. For example - for problem number 1 - the sides of the triangle are 3, 3, and 5. To find perimeter you add the sides. So for your answer, you should show:
1. 3 + 3 + 5= 11     C

Just a reminder to the people sending comments to the Book Blog - I can't post them until you return the permission slip.
