Science Benchmark

Just a quick reminder that they are having a science benchmark tomorrow.  We reviewed some in class, but did not get to everything.  They should have brought their science INB's home to help them study tonight.
 
Book Fair is going on!  Tomorrow morning is Muffin with Mom!

LIBRARY BOOKS!!!

All library books are due tomorrow!  If your child has any at home, please have them bring them to school tomorrow.

Hello!!!   We made it through the STAAR!!  
On Friday the students will be having a science test.  It will be on plant and animal lifecycles (including metamorphosis) and on ecosystems, food chains, and food webs.  We will review in class tomorrow and I will encourage them to bring their science INB's home to study.  There are also some good science videos in their science google class that would be a good review.  
Also next Tuesday they will be having their science benchmark which covers everything they have learned all year.  
 
Remember that field day is this Friday.  The students are to wear their shirts from the fun run.  It would be a good idea to apply sunscreen before they come to school.
 
Book Fair next week!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!!
 
For homework every night (Monday through Thursday) the students should be doing one page in their "Countdown to STAAR" packet.  This is review of everything that has been taught this year and will help them to prepare for the STAAR test which is 3 weeks away. Please make sure they are bringing this home and completing one page a night.  We will be going over it every day in small groups.
 
They are also bringing a page home from their workbook tonight.  This is a practice test for the Financial Literacy Test they will be taking on Friday.  It is NOT homework, but I would highly encourage them to do a few problems each night to help prepare them for the test.  (It is only 12 problems.)  If they turn it in to me by Friday I will pay them $50 cougar bucks.  
 
There will also be a science test on Thursday.  It will cover adaptations of plants and animals as well as inherited and learned traits.

The money for the Cougar Dash fun run is due this Thursday as there is no school on Friday!  The PTO has a goal of raising $13,000.00  to buy some large playground equipment.  Right not we are just under $2000 away from the goal!  Thank you to those who have already generously donated to this cause and encourage all to help if they can.  
 
The students have a worksheet (Pg. 5 of their packet) for homework tonight.  They also have a fun "My Family Traits" paper that I would like back by Thursday.  If you are visiting family over the weekend it can be returned on Monday.  

Homework and Math Tests

Good morning!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Yes, that does say math tests as in more than one.  Tomorrow the students will be taking a test over the Data Analysis unit that we have been covering.  It will cover frequency tables, dot plots, and stem-and-leaf plots.  The students need to know how to read them and answer questions about them.  Tonight their homework is a review page that covers this.  They will also have a practice test that they will bring home.  It is NOT required but I will give them $50 cougar bucks if they do it.  It has only 12 problems and shouldn't take long to do it.  
    On Wednesday we will be taking a math benchmark.  It will cover everything they have learned since the beginning of the year.  I will encourage the students to bring their INB's home to help them review.
