6S News November 17

Happy Friday! We are about half way through our novel, The Breadwinner. We have completed many activities related to the book and have had many discussions about it. In Math, we are becoming experts at multiplying large numbers with and without decimals. We will tackle division next week. Mathisfun.com is an excellent site for practice in any area of math. For practice of basic facts, students can go to multiplication.com.

In Science, we are learning about differnet types of trees, the parts of a tree and the process of photosynthesis. Next week, we'll examine tree cookies and learn how to identify events in a tree's life.

In Social Studies, we've wrapped up chapters one and two on decision making and the principles of democracy. . 

Have a great weekend!
