- We are designing our "Dream Classroom". We are utilizing our knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions and decimals. Plus we are converting measurements and finding volume and area of rooms and furniture. Students also have the ability to redesign a teacher's classroom if they would like instead. They are loving this project!
- The students ability to remember their basic facts will help make this upcoming unit much easier on them, so remember to have them complete their xmath at least three times a week.
- The students have picked groups and a battle book from past years, they will read the book and create a presentation that reviews the main idea of the book and the theme. Once there written work is complete the kids will create a trailer on the book they read.
- Please have your child bring a book to school every day of the school year. They will have opportunities throughout the day to read and enjoy the book that they have chosen.
The students will have Mrs. Crooks for Science this year. If you have any questions or concerns please contact her at JCrooks@birmingham.k12.mi.us.
