In Math we learned about multiplying multiple digit numbers by one digit. This week we will be starting to learn about dividing those numbers. We used to go further into depth, but we will only be introducing the concept this year.
I had sent home Science tests as homework this week. It excited me to hear from the class that they thought it was easy and didn't need to use the book. It also showed in their excellent test scores. We have been working on Matter, and we're lucky enough to have CSUN students observe our work in the science lab (they were impressed).
This Friday is Valentine's Day. We will not be having a party, but if you want to send individually packaged treats you may (no cupcakes, cookies, etc.) but please remember we have students with peanut allergies. If your child would like to pass out cards, they must give one to everyone in class. Our parent liaison will be emailing the class list of names.
I am sure that your child has told you by now, I am expecting. I am currently 4 months along, and due mid-July. At the moment, everything is healthy and normal, so I do not expect to have to take any leave of absence. I am looking forward to this exciting experience.
