Today students will be picking a book title out of a box and that will be the 
biography of a person they will be working on this month. I am going to read 
the book with them and we will write a short biography of the person. On 
Friday the writing, book and a form to fill out will be sent home. Parents 
will need to create a skit for your child to do in front of the class. The 
kids will pretend to be the person. they can dress like their famous person 
and discuss the main points in the person's life. I was born...It can be 
serious or funny. We are a Theater Arts School and this assignment will help 
us act more. You can have other kids help. The skit needs to show however, 
why this person has given so much to the world. You can also use props. 
Presentation will be the 2oth of January.

Test March 2
The class will be having a science/social studies test next Thursday, March 
2nd. I am sending home their Social Studies book. Study p. I14. They will 
need to match the words with the pictures. They will also need to know the 
difference between weathering and erosion. They will have to provide an 
example of each.Weathering is the wearing away or breaking of rock into 
little bits of rock. An example, would be water freezing and a rock breaking 
apart. If a plant's roots break away a rock or the sidewalk would be another 
way. Erosion is carrying weathered rock from place to place. Glaciers are an 
example. Ocean waves would be another.
