In Language Arts, we will continue to learn about story elements- character and setting and adding plot. In writing, we will continue to work on our narratives while focusing on editing and revising through the writing process.
Please make sure students are reading at least 75 minutes a week and responding in detail about what they read (one of the days).
We will be continuing to work on Module 3 (the parent letter was already sent home). We will be introducing and reinforcing the fours multiplication facts, solving word problems involving multiplication, and reading and telling the time to the nearest minute, and relating analog and digital times.
