We reached over $36 per lap in the Boosterthon. Way to go! All pledge money is due on Thursday, September 22nd!

Language Arts

This week we began an extensive unit on writing a research report. The kids have been researching rain forests, taking notes, citing resources, and practicing writing main idea paragraphs. Next week we will begin our research on wetlands or prairies for our actual reports. Please be sure your child is reading every night and writing it on the reading log.

Math

This week we continued working on place value. We modeled numbers with base ten blocks, sketched numbers with base ten pictures, and practiced writing numbers in standard and word form. Next week we will continue to explore place value by writing numbers in different forms up to the thousands place.

Science

This week we finished up the concept of gravity and how we can overcome it. Next week we will be moving onto the force of magnetism.
Thank you for your continued support and have a great week!
