What We're Learning
Reading: Your child is expected to read 15-20 minutes each night. I encourage you to read with your child and ask questions about what they are reading along the way to help strengthen their comprehension skills. We will be working on skills to best fit the needs of each child this week.
Math: This week we will continue reviewing subtracting numbers. We are starting subtracting with regrouping this week. Subtraction can be a little tricky for some, so please continue to work with your child at home to help them with subtracting numbers.
Social Studies: The first unit we are learning about is Ancient China. This week we will learn about Chinese adaptations and Chinese economics.
Science: This week your child will learn about Populations, Communities and ecosystems with Mr. Judd.
Writing: This week we will learn how to edit a paragraph.
Please check and sign your child's homework grid nightly. Your signature verifies you have seen their grid and homework assignments and they have finished the work.
Students will have Math homework nightly (Monday-Thursday)
Students are expected to read at least 15 minutes each night, including weekends. They will be asked to complete a reading log each night as well.
