Veteran's Week

Dear families,

This week is a short week with no school on Thursday. I hope everyone takes time to remember those who serve our country and have served in the past. Thursday is Veteran's Day and a day to remember and be thankful for our many blessings and freedoms.

Due to the short week there will be no spelling words or POW this week. We will read non-fiction stories in reading groups and focus on drawing conclusions. In math we will add and subtract decimals to the thousandths and begin working on two step equations.

This week you will work with your Biztown business groups. We will go over each business assignments and discuss how you will work at Biztown. It is important that you be here each afternoon this week so that you can spend time with your group for next week's field trip. I will send home an information sheet with all of the field trip details later this week.

Don't forget about our Science Fair assignments. This week we will go over the scientific method in class and you will have the opportunity to look for experiments in the computer lab on Tuesday for those still needing some ideas. Your science fair question is due this Friday, no exceptions.

Homework will be lighter this week with no spelling words. Please remember to write it down each day in your agenda, this is your bellwork every morning.

Have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Mrs. DeBono
