Math & Science
In math we will be learning how to evaluate expression. We will also learn how to solve addition and subtraction equations.
In science we will continue reviewing information for the upcoming STAAR test. The test is Wednesday, so make sure your child gets a good nights sleep Tuesday night and eats a healthy breakfast Wednesday morning.
Reading & Social Studies
In Social Studies, students will begin to present their Western Expansion projects to the class. Each student has been working hard with their groups to research different groups of settlers that moved west in the 1800s. Ask your child to tell you about their unique group of settlers!
