**In Mrs. Groenveld's science class we are in the middle of our unit on motion. So far the kids have learned what forces cause motion, and did many wonderful hands-on experiments. They are now learning how energy and motion are related. Students will continue to participate in many hands-on activities where they will have to predict and investigate.
**In math class students will be taking their unit test on fractions. After the break students will begin the division and measurement units. 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 many 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!!
