What we've been up to..

We have a PUBLISHED writer in our class!! We write our opinions on the question of the week frequently, and send them into Weekly Reader, and one of the letters by a student in our class was chosen and published in the Weekly Reader! Thousands of kids and teachers all over the US read her words! How cool is that!? WAY TO GO AMBER!!

We've been studying mimicry & camouflage in science and made these cool posters. Can you spot the hidden butterflies? There are 3 on each poster!







We're also working hard in accelerated math. We're competing on teams to see who can get the most points by winter break! The winners will get a prize! Looks like those "Decimal Demons" are in the lead! (Note, there are 2 teams that are NOT in the you might not see your child's name up there. Ask them how many points they've got!)

Check out our Mastery Club board. Look at all those facts mastered!! (Each star is a fact mastered & memorized). Want to know specifics? Check out the Mastery Club link on the right to see what the questions are! This goes until the end of the year, so encourage your child to master more! The mastery club link can help them study these!

Don't forget!! The annual Hulet Christmas Concert is on Thursday December 4th @ 6:30 at the Performing Arts Center at the High School. Mrs. Self has planned a fantastic show as always!
Because of the concert there will be no homework on Thursday! :) See you there!

Also the PTSA is having a Food Drive from now until December 17th. If you are able, please send non-perishable food items for the food drive. Thanks for all you do!
