Continent Studies - ASIA

We began our unit of study on Asia. We are also learning about imports and exports. This week, we worked on learning the definitions of imports and exports, as well as exploring where things are made.

Wonders

Please check out our Spelling City page (link below). Each child has an individual account. Their account information was sent home; however, if you do not have it please check their passwords document in their Google Drive or send me an email!


Please have your child read at home as much as possible. Even 20 minutes per night will make a big difference in increasing their fluency and comprehension. Thank you for your support!

Envisions Math

We started Topic 7: Division by doing some exploration with Legos. This was a fun and engaging unit; however, it was also a long lesson! We will continue to work on it next week.

Genius Hour

I am going to temporarily suspend Genius Hour until further notice. We are extremely busy the next couple of weeks and need to make sure that we are getting our Reading and Math work done. Check out some of the upcoming events in our classroom and district (see below).
