Winter Break

I hope that you and your family had a great winter break! Hard to believe that it's over, and we only have two weeks left of the 2nd quarter.

What Are We Working On This Week?

Character Education: In January, we are working on the trait of Trustworthiness.

Reader's Workshop: Working on Making Inferences.

Spelling/Word Study: We will not have spelling this week or next. We will start spelling again for Quarter 3 (the week of January 16th), where we will have our list for about 3 weeks (similar to quarter 2).

Writer's Workshop: Informational Reports need to be typed and handed in this Friday, January 6th.

Math: Unit 8 - Algebra, Functions, and Graphs

Science: Unit 5- Ecosystems

Social Studies: this subject is taught by Mrs. Kornder. Please check your child's agenda daily to see if they have homework in this area. Questions, please
