Peek at the Week

Here is what is coming up next week!


Writing-We are beginning a new unit and going back to personal narratives. The students will use what they know from the previous narrative unit to plan, organize, draft, and complete a final copy in two weeks!


Reading-We are beginning a unit called Once Upon a Time and looking at classic literature such as folktales, fairytales, fables, tall tales and legends. This week we are concentrating on folktales and the qualities of a folktale.


Math-We are beginning a review unit on multiplication and division and extending our strategies to multiplying up to a 4 digit number by a 1 digit number.

Doctor appointments

We would appreciate it if doctor appointments could be scheduled from 12pm and later. This allows us to work with your student in content areas and not have them miss any important information. We understand this is not always possible, but appreciate your willingness to try!
