Spring Market

We are in need of a quilt to use for our table during Shopping Day. If you have a spring quilt we can borrow, please let me know. It will be returned.

Language Arts

  • This week in spelling, we have discussed how to write words that end with y plural. Today we learned the rule that when a word ending in y has a vowel in front of the y, an s is added to make the word plural (boy/boys). When a word ending in y has a consonant in front of the y, the y is changed to i and es is added (berry/berries).
  • This week we continue to discuss cause and effect, and will look at how writers use cause and effect in their writing.


This week we will be adding three digit numbers, as well as problem solving with three digit numbers. We will also begin looking at different types of polygons and learning how to name them.

There will be a fact test this Thursday. Please continue to help your child study for these tests.

Social Studies/Science

Our factories began production last Friday, and we will have our shopping day this Friday. We will be reviewing for our economics test which will be next Tuesday, April 19. Your child will bring their social studies/science notebook home this Thursday, in order to have time to study for the test.
