Weekly Update 11/10-11/14

Dear families,
I hope you had a great week. Next week we will be going on our field trip to Roto on Friday, November 21st. The purpose of our field trip is to visit a local business who is willing to help us learn more about the design process. We will take part in a few activities while at Roto. We will see and learn about the process they use on a daily basis to create their products. We will also be testing out a few of their interactive exhibits and providing feedback for changes that may need to be made.  

We will be a Roto from 9:30 in the morning until 11:00. Students will not need to bring anything special to school that day and should expect to have lunch at school as usual. We are all looking forward to what is sure to be an informative and exciting field trip!

This week in math we worked on multiplying and dividing decimals. This week we really concentrated on using visual models to represent our thinking of multiplying and dividing. Next week and when we return from Thanksgiving break, we will continue to work on multiplying, dividing decimals and applying these abilities to real life situations. 
In science we started a planet study project in which groups of students will learn about a planet in our galaxy, began creating presentations and are working towards teaching the class what they learned. Students should finish these up next week and will present them towards the end of next week or early the short week before Thanksgiving break. After Thanksgiving break we will revisit some geography concepts and will start to talk about origins of our families and cultural influences on North America.
