Please look closely at the picture on this web page. What is it????.............. We have been going to Ms. Warner's science class and doing different experiments this year. The last two experiments have been about DNA. The picture on the right shows our DNA that the students were able to get and produce in class. Please ask your student about it. Have them show you their DNA necklace. In math we are learning how to count money, use multiplication tables by doing what is know as 9-lines and some geometry. Have your student show you their geometry patterns. . In Language Arts we have started the Sopris-West Language program. We are learning Phonetics; Grammar; Language usage; Reading Comprehension; and Spelling. We have learned to identify Subject and Predicate in sentences. Two questions to always ask when writing sentences is: "Who or what did it?" and "What did they do?" We are now starting Unit 3 called "Dig It". Your student should be reading for at least 20 minutes every night including weekends. Remember, your student should come prepared for school with backpack, pencils, paper and positive attitude. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at 408-270-4992.
