Welcome back to SIS… and welcome to Mr. D’s favorite month of the year.

Happy 30th birthday, SIS… and happy 32nd birthday, Mr. D.

Here’s what we are working on:

In reading and writing, we are continuing with our argumentative texts. In reading, the students are reading texts to find facts to support their sides of the debate. In writing, they are finishing up their persuasive essays on whether chocolate milk should be served in school.

In science, we are looking at how organisms get energy by looking at food chains. We are then looking at how disruptions affect these food chains. We are also finishing our plant experiment on seeing what factors plants need most to survive.

In math, we completed our adding and subtracting fractions unit before break. This means we are starting a new unit – multiplying and dividing fractions! Please read the newsletter below carefully to see how you can best help your child during this unit.
