We have also set up our reader's response notebooks and are learning how to take notes to help us better understand what we are learning!
Writing: We will begin our first major writing unit, personal narratives, in a few weeks. Students also began their Poetry Plus notebook. This is where students are introduced to a new poem or book at the beginning of the week and have a variety of tasks to complete by Friday. Ask your child what his or her favorite activity with the poetry notebook is!
Math: We are almost through Unit 1 where students have been learning about factors, divisibility rules, and prime vs. composite numbers. The secure skill we will focus hard on this unit is prime factorization.
Character Club: We began Character Club last week and all students got to participate! Students will continue participating Fridays if they have completed their homework and have followed PBIS expectations all week.
