**In Mrs. Groenveld's science class we are at the beginning of our Force and Motion Unit. This includes gravity, inertia, magnetism and energy. Students will participate in many hands-on activities where they will have to predict and investigate. 
**In math class students are continuing the unit on fractions. Students are learning how to add and subtract mixed numbers. We will then move on to multiplying fractions and decimals.  Students will work in stations and centers. Students will also continue to play math games and learn some new ones. Ask your child to teach you one. They are a lot of fun!!
**Students are still working on reaching their Mad Minute goal of passing all multiplication and division fact Mad Minutes. Be sure to study your multiplication facts.  Students need to know facts 0-9 by heart!!! Right now we have some students in division! Way to Go!!!!
**IXL will continue with 1 hour due every 2 weeks. Our grand champ is the child who completes the most amount of minutes in both math classes. We also have a first place winner and a second place winner from each class. Keep working hard!!
