Writing and Reading
ASK your child: What is an inference, and how does it help you as a reader?
In Writing we are taking our notes about our researched animal and putting them back into complete thoughts and sentences in a book. This book gives students an opportunity to use nonfiction features and think about important decisions authors make.
The unit 6 math test will be coming home soon. Please be sure to take the opportunity to look for celebration and goal areas with your child.
Our current unit in math focuses on geometric shapes and attributes of those shapes. We will be learning about 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes, the attributes that define those shapes, and symmetry. Please continue to practice addition and subtraction facts at home with your child, along with counting and exchanging coins.
