Our test on measurement is scheduled for Thursday. Have you heard about the treats that we’ve been measuring?
Please encourage your child to share his/her scrapbook with you. It will be coming home soon. We needed a few more days to add a few finishing touches before they get graded.
Have you seen your child’s electricity journal? This journal is a good summary of the key concepts that we’re discussing and investigating in class.
