What we are learning this week!


This week we will continue with multiplication. We have been learning how to show our thinking. Students have learned many ways to show thinking such as repeated addition, arrays and drawing it out. We will continue with this and quiz on Friday!


We are continuing working on theme! When talking to your child after reading or watching a movie see if they can figure out the overall theme or message of the story! Remind them its what the author wants us to learn from experiencing the storyline!


We will be finishing up our weather unit this week!! Have students look over weather notes to help prepare for the test!
