Week of September 19th


Focus Skill: Ask Questions/Identify Main Idea and Details

This week we will be reading biographies in our reading groups! We will work on identifying features of a biography as well as continuing our focus skills-asking questions and identifying the main idea and details.


We are going to begin a persuasive writing unit!!


Their spelling list (green list this week) can be found in their binders. Please note that it is important to focus on the patterns in their words and not necessarily the memorization of the words. They need to be able to apply what they learn to their writing too.

The packet that is clipped in their binder is to be used with their weekly spelling words.

We will not have spelling tests. I will be looking for the application of their words in their everyday writing.


We will begin unit 2 this week and will be working with arrays, factors, and multiples. Please continue to touch base with your child on their multiplication facts to keep these fluent.

I post links on our Google Classroom that will help reinforce these skills at home :). Your child should know how to log on.
