Wednesday Homework -

Science - Continue with note-taking for pages D64 - 69

Math -  Because we had the fraction test today, tonight's homework is a word problem review. Number Sense and Operations Packet - pages 59 - 67.

Reminder - Religion test is tomorrow.

Regarding the Math homework -

I'm not sure what happened, but the papers must have fed through the copier wrong. I noticed a number of words were cut off along with parts of questions 3 and 4. You can skip anything you can't read, but I think only question 3 was really affected.

So just to clarify some things I've gotten questions about - Math quiz is Wednesday. It's on what we've done so far on fractions  - identifying them, adding and subtracting them, simple equivalent fractions (ex 1/2 = 2/4).

Measurement Monday is something altogether separate. I find that doing all measurement together as a unit is overwhelming, so we do it on Mondays in March and April - Measurement Mondays. Each Monday will be a different type of measurement. For this week it was using a ruler/yardstick for inches, feet, yards, and converting the measurements - inches to feet, feet to yards, etc. Once we've done the measurement, I'll begin to include that kind of problem in our word problem practice.  Measurement is NOT on Wednesday's test.

Religion test is on the three chapters they did practice tests for - Chapters 8, 9, 10.   They only have to study what is on the sheets. Ch 8 is an overview of the Ten Commandments. Ch. 9 is Commandment #1 and 10 is Commandment #2.

Reminder - the Science Fair project approval papers should have been turned in already.
Projects will be due the week of March 18th. Children will be scheduled for different days during that week.
