Writing Workshop -It's time to celebrate! Our stories are complete and we will have our Author Celebration on Wednesday! Now we move on to opinion writing!

Literacy - Word study groups and reading groups are meeting throughout the week. We are focused on how authors work to create setting and mood in their writing.

Mathematics - We continue to work on word problems using multiplication and division. Bar modeling is one strategy that we are using to help us "visualize" the problem. Keep practicing those multiplication facts. MIGHTY MULTIPLIERS has begun!!!

Science - We will have our quiz on Earth Processes this week and will begin to look at prehistoric Ohio.

You are your child's first and greatest teacher!

Math - 5-10 minutes nightly of basic multiplication fact practice (flashcards, verbal, computer games, etc.) will be a huge help as we work on multiplying and dividing larger numbers.

Reading - 20 minutes nightly reading of current AR book. Let your child share what they're reading with you. We're off and running toward our new goals!
