The math sheets sent home each night are optional, but I ask that you at least discuss the topic with your child. If they demonstrate a strong understanding, feel free to recycle the homework.

In Writer's Workshop, we have finished our first draft copies of our fiction stories. We will start our final copies this week!

Science / Social Studies
In social studies, we will be focusing on rights and responsibilities. Students will learn that rights are things that we are free to do. We will also learn that responsibilities are things that we should do.
