A NOTE FROM THE TEACHER
We had a nice celebration for Mrs. Van Ee on Friday, since it was her last day, and we wish her luck in completing her School Social Worker degree.   We will really miss her!!   We are happy to have Ms. Kimball in our classroom now and look forward to a great year with her in our classroom.


COIN DRIVE
Thanks to students that have donated towards the coin drive to support the United Way.  The drive will continue until the Thanksgiving break.


IN MATH THIS WEEK
Students took the Unit 4 Math test on Friday, and I was really pleased to see the improvement that they made. The class average went from a 62% on the pretest to a 91% on the posttest.  Students will bring their tests home on Monday with a reflection sheet to complete and get signed.  We will begin Unit 5 this week, which focuses primarily on big numbers and multi-digit multiplication.


IN WRITING THIS WEEK
This will be our last week to work on Autobiographies.   Most students are at or near publishing.  I have begun posting some of our students' work to our Student Work page.  


THING-A-MABOBBLES
Thing-A-Mabobbles are weekly math challenge problems that students may attempt from home or from school.   They are always due on the Friday of the week that they are assigned.  


MOBY MAX
Congrats to the five students that earned the most points in their Moby account.  There will be a new extra credit contest beginning this week.  Students are also going to bring home their Moby Progress Reports each month, so that parents can see what progress they make in their accounts each month.
