# Nickajack Talent Show

As am sure most of you are aware each Friday Tutu (my mom) comes to read to the class. In addition to reading Roald Dahl books she has also created a class act for our kids to perform in the Relay for Life Talent Show on Thursday, March 14th. They have already been practicing weekly and are getting VERY good!
Participation in our class act will not exclude students from other individual or group acts nor is participation required. I will send home permission slips closer to the show date.
Lyrics to our song are below for at home practice as well.

# Science Test and Thanksgiving Break

Hello! Thanksgiving is possibly my favorite holiday only because it is so focused on my two favorite things FAMILY and FOOD!! I hope that each of you has a week filled with with both and plenty of relaxation.

Now down to business…we will have a science test on matter and changes in matter on Wednesday, November 28. Today students were provided with a study guide. I advised each of them to bring home their science journals and below have posted some resources to assist them.

Changes in matter Quizlet

Chemical changes in matter Quizlet

In math we continue to work with decimals. We will soon finish up with multiplication and move on to division. Students can ALWAYS practice on iXL; decimal operations can be found under G1-G21 (general knowledge), H1-H8 (adding and subtracting) and I1-I9 (multiplication). Students can login with their student number and the password “math2018”.
Several students would also benefit from practice of basic math facts which iXL is also very useful and convenient for! Math facts and fluency practice can be found under the third grade tab in F1-F13 and G1-G20.
