This week in mathematics we will continue our work in data collection and data analysis. Our key words are minimum, maximum, median, mode, range and average(mean).Students are continuing on their reading goal. Please encourage your child to read at home and keep track of the pages they've read. This week in the Bridge Building Contest we will be learning about arch bridges as well as beginning to construct our models! Science from Scientist will be visiting on Thursday. It's been awesome to have them bring real science to the classroom. We have a new reward for kids who are doing the right thing!!....art with Emily! Emily is a Hamline University student who will be doing cool art projects with 5th graders on Thursdays. Kids who have their homework in and are doing a great job as a community member are eligible. Finally, Family Night is Thursday from 4:00 to 6:00. There will be activities in all the rooms for visiting families.
