MATH: We will finish up Chapter 9 - Measurement and Time. There will be a Chapter 9 test on Wednesday.

*Our Mad Minute scores are improving so much! Almost all of the students have been able to complete 30/30 addition problems in 2 1/2 minutes and many have already moved onto 40, 50, and even 60 problems! We will continue to take our mad minute quizzes almost every day and continue to increase the challenges with either more problems or less time! Make sure you are practicing a few minutes each night. You can use flashcards or apps on the ipad.

**Please note that if during the day we use pages out of our Big Math Book in class, I will send those pages home in the red take home folder so you can see how the lesson was taught during the day. It is my hope that, if needed, this will help you be able to assist your child with the homework that night. 

RELIGION: We will be learning about Mary and the rosary during the month of May.

SCIENCE: We will continue our unit on plants. We will dissect a lima bean and plant seeds this week!

**As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
