Here is the link to this week’s newsletter:



Math-  Please continue to review your 4x tables multiplication facts. Quiz-TOMORROW!

Wkbk. pg. 28 EVENS

We are trying to earn an ice cream party.

Every time a student masters a set of times tables, they will add something to their paper ice cream sundae.

Once the entire class has mastered all their times tables from 1-12 we will have a real ice cream party.

Spelling- Workbook Lesson 8 (4 pages) is due TOMORROW.  Quiz TOMORROW- Lesson 8.

Science-  After conferencing with students, they were to research the 2-3 inventions left on their lists.

When they narrowed it down to one or two ideas, they were to write on a separate piece of paper

whether or not the invention has already been made and how they are going to make it. They did not

have to go into great detail, but I need a general idea on what they want to invent.

If your child is “stuck”, please watch some past Invention Conventions videos on You Tube.

Social Studies- 


 Digital Media- 

Religion- Memorize the Act of Contrition prayer by November 1.

 **If students are going to wear their P.E. uniforms on P.E. days, 

they need to be wearing the Linton Hall sweatshirt as well.
