 The students have been making wonderful progress learning the multiplication facts this year! Our class goal is to memorize all the times tables up to 12 by the end of May.  Please encourage your child to practice each night using flashcards, ixl.com, or other online games.....In Social Studies, we've been studying basic economics and budgeting. The students learned how to create a budget that will help them manage their money responsibly - yes, that means saving, not just spending!......In Science, the students have been learning about climate and weather. They made representations of cirrus, stratus, and cumulus clouds using cotton balls. They created a "cloud" in a cup and made it rain!  Take a look at some of their projects below, including the Earth Day art that was completed at home. What a beautiful display!
