We Are Learning To...

Language Arts

This week we will continue to read our new Magic Tree House text and use it to answer questions about a text, determine the meanings of unfamiliar words with context clues, retell a chapter using the key details and more! Ask your kiddo about their book each day, and work on these skills at home by asking your child Who? Where? What? after they read each night.


We have completed Unit 3 which focused on multiplication and division, and we will begin Unit 4 which focuses on area and perimeter. Check Monday folders for a Topic A Newsletter and tips of how to help your child with these new skills at home.
