News from the Math Department (By Taylor): This week we learned how to use exponential form and leaning the algorithms (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing).
News from the English/Language Arts Department (By Becca): This week we learned new words like overhear, isolate, etc. Then we took a quiz on the words.

News from the Physical Education Department (By Brian): We learned more about football and to do a spiral. We got a technique that helped throwing and aiming.
News from the Art Department (By Sabrina):At art we learned how to draw a dragon eye. We also learned how to make scales around the dragon’s eye, so it would look realistic. So that is what we mostly learned at art so far.
Free Choice Area (By Trevor): My favorite thing is lunch, snack, and recess.
Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer): Another busy week in the books for the class of 178. We worked hard, we learned a lot, and we are ready for the weekend.
I just have a few reminders. Next week we are doing the MAPs testing for math on Thursday. There will be a school board meeting on Monday night, and Monday is also our first Spanish lesson of the year. Don’t forget that Thursday is also Trailside’s Cousin’s Day. ANYTHING you buy there on Thursday helps out the school. Please make sure to stop in there for lunch and dinner. Finally, just a reminder to keep on pushing for donations for the Color run!

I wanted to inform everyone of one more communication tool that I implemented into our school community to use. Along with the Remind101 text system we now have a Twitter account for the class. Follow us @MrSingerClass. Both items are weighted on the front page of our website, www.mrsinger.weebly.com, for you to see the instant feeds. PLEASE stay connected to what we are doing in our classroom.
Remember to check the assignment notebook board daily for homework updates.
