I am amazed at how much reading our students did over the weekend to move us into the Elite 8 of the Read to the Final Four competition. There are now two teams remaining in each of the four regions.
Teamwork makes the dream work! We’re going to need all students reading this week to move on to win the final round for our region on Monday March 9. Tara Elementary in Clayton County is going to give us some tough competition. We would love to bring this win home for Dolvin and Fulton County because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Our students have already done such an amazing job competing against 90 schools in our region in the Tip Off and still hanging in there as one of the final two teams. WOW!

3rd grade math:
This unit is focusing on Fractions. Students are learning how to write fractions of one whole, fractions of a set and how to represent fractions on a number line. Each student has practice pages in their blue folder. These are worked on in class and should also be worked on at home.
Standards: NF1, NF2, NF3
We will have a quiz on this unit on Friday and tentatively schedule the test for Wednesday of next week.
4th grade math:
This unit focuses on 2-d figures. It is deceptive. Many students feel that "shapes" are "easy" and are not paying attention to the details. We have completed the unit and are now in a "review" process. Students will have a Quiz on Thursday and a test next Wednesday. Each student has a practice packet that should be completed and a good resource for studying.
Social Studies. We are currently working on The middle colonies and will complete the southern colonies by the end of the week. Next week students will be completing a project and will have a quiz and test. Study material will be in their green folders by the end of the week. In addition, students have several resources in their google classrooms.
