Thanks to all of you that came out for Open House.  It was nice to see many of you again and meet some new faces.  For those of you that couldn't make it, NO WORRIES.  I totally understand! I am sending all paperwork that I gave out home on Tuesday with your child.  
Please look over it and if you have any questions feel free to let me know.  
My email is lori.rodden@sumenrschools.org
Cell phone is 812-205-5955

This week:

Science--Students will have a short quiz on Thursday over labeling a plant and animal cell.  There is a study guide in their take home folder and we will be reviewing and practicing all week. 

They also brought home an extra credit project.  It is optional and due Aug. 24th.

Social Studies--We will begin ch. 3 this week and study Native Americans.

Math--We are working with multiplication and learning about prime and composite numbers.  If you have a minute ask them what  prime and composite numbers are.  Students have a real hard time (for some reason) understanding these terms.  

ELA--We will be reading some fun Olympic passages and learning some facts about Modern and Ancient Olympics.  
Wordly Wise (vocabulary) is due on Thursday.

Spelling test and contract on FRIDAY!!!

If you have any questions or need to let me know something please email or text me.  Even if it is to say your child needs an extra hug, or had a rough morning.  This helps me tremendously.  
I am looking forward to a great year!!!!
