Hello all and Happy Tuesday to you!  I have not been on here in over a week...ahhh!!!  I feel so lost with our break and me being out...CRAZY!

Anyway, I hope you had a TERRIFIC Fall Break!  I was super busy...two weddings, orchards, registering for Baby T, family outings, etc.

We are working on identifying prefixes and suffixes from a base word (root word), and noting how they change the meanings of the root words when applied.
HOMEWORK: prefixes worksheet

We are working on making inferences in our reading.  To make an inference means to take clues from the author in the text, combing it with what we know, and making a guess about something that the author may not come out directly and say.  Our theme is mysteries...and can you believe it, someone stole our CARRIE OWL!!!!???!!!??!?  Ahhhhh!!!!!  We will be using the clues left for us by the thief to make inferences of who he/she is...silly person, don't they know Carrie Owl is THE BEST?!?

Students are studying Energy Transformations with Ms. Frederick.  They made a model of a Food Chain on a diagram and went through a cool and fun activity!

We are now studying MULTIPLES which is like skip counting by a given number.  For example, the multiples of 3 are 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, etc.
HOMEWORK: WORKBOOK pages 27 and 28.

Conference Request forms were sent home today.  Conference night is Thursday, October 28th, but I am open to having any and all necessary throughout next week.  The sooner you send back your form, the more likely you are to get the time you requested.

ALSO, DO NOT forget to send back picture forms and money!
Have a terrific Tuesday evening!
Mrs. Thomas
