A Message from Ms. Scriven

Happy LONG weekend!  The kids are going to need it after our first full week of school!  We have jumped right into our math and sciene instruction!  This week students drew pictures of their idea of a scientist and were introduced to the scientific method.  Students also learned how to write testable questions using an independent and dependent variable.  In math, students recognized that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.  If your child is having a difficult time with this, please encourage him/her to draw a place value chart to help with this skill.  They may also go to the follow website:  learnzillion.com. Enter the code LZ3000 in any search field and watch a video lesson.  

Just a few reminders...

1.  If your child did not bring in his/her 5 tab dividers this week, please be sure to pick them up this weekend.  These are needed in order to help keep your child's GATOR binder organized.

2.  Don't forget to check your child's Green Communication Folder for important school information.

3.  Check the sidebar for upcoming quizzes!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me! Enjoy your long weekend!
