Hooray for our first full week back to school since December!
Math- This week we will add comparing fractions to our fraction knowledge and do lots of in class review for the test on Friday.
Reading- We will start learning about comparing and contrasting texts written by the same author. We started reviewing Venn Diagrams today and will begin reading books by Patrica Polacco on Wednesday.
Writing- Students started on a piece for the Cobb County Writing Fair today! This piece is a great way to see what they can really do since I am not allowed to help them in any way. We also started learning about comparative and superlative adjectives. Students will be tested on this on Friday.
Social Studies- We are continuing to learn about the three branches of government and what they do. Students will be tested on Thursday! A study guide will be sent home on Tuesday.
-Please make sure your students are practicing their multiplication tables at home for their weekly timed tests! Last week I had many students earn a medal!
-Don't forget that the penny wars end this Friday! We can sabotage the other grades with other coins or dollars.
-Chick-fil-a night is this Thursday! Eat some yummy chicken and support Addison!
-The Father Daughter dance is this Friday from 6pm-8pm. If you need a slip please let me know.
-Students have new spelling homework! They are to do one activity from the choice board each night.

One more reminder from Addison...
Georgia Parent Survey
Please note that the school climate surveys for the 2016-2017 school year are officially open, and will remain open through Friday, March 3, 2017. It is critical for all schools to get parents to participate in the surveys.
The Georgia Parent Survey is also modeled after the student survey questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphones or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, school administrators should consider scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. All parents should be encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Individual data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below.
As always if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me - firstname.lastname@example.org
I have taught for 6 years and joined the Addison family in January of last year. I was so excited to return to the school I attended for 4th and 5th grade.
