 Dear Parents,

**Mad minute tests are now a timed MINUTE test.  We finished all our facts 2-12 and we have now circled back to the beginning but with reduced time.  The students should be able to quickly give an answer to their facts at this point.  Also, as an added incentive, if your student gets a "100" on their mad minute test, they will be exempt from the times tables homework for those facts as well as any subsequent mad minute tests for the week.  However, the grade received on Friday or by Friday is the grade for that test. 

This week will be the 8's times tables.  Make sure your child practices these facts as part of their homework.  Study those facts!!!  We have begun learning about factors, prime and composite numbers, as well as multiples. We will also be beginning fractions very soon!!

In Science, students will finsh giving their brief oral presentations on their projects this week.  I know it can be nerve-wracking, so I am allowing the students to give their presentation from their seats or at the rug in the back of the classroom.  They have all been doing an excellent job!  The projects came out great and we can't wait to show them off at the educational fair next week!  We have also begun our Unit on Plants and Animals. 

In Social Studies, we will continue learning about the Northeast region of the United States.

IOWA TESTING has been completed in Mrs. Wall's 4th grade class.  The children worked hard!

3rd Grade will begin  Topic 9 this week. .  3rd grade will be practicing the 10's for their times tables this week.  Study those facts!!

BOOK ORDERS ARE DUE TOMORROW,  MONDAY, MARCH 18TH IF YOU CHOOSE TO ORDER.  THIS INCLUDES ONLINE ORDERS ALSO. PLEASE NO LATE ORDERS.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Mrs. Wall
