This Week

  • Spelling: We will begin working on new words this week. Students were given a copy to practice at home to prepare for our test on Friday.


  • Reading: This week we will be reading a fantasy fiction book, The Trumpet of the Swan, by E.B. White. Students are strongly encouraged to read at home every night, even if it is 10 minutes here and there.


  • Writing: This week we will continue writing a personal narrative, a story that actually happened.


  • Math: We will continue learning about place value up to the millions place and rounding and addition of multi-digit numbers. At home, students should be practicing their multiplication facts, especially the 4x and 6x tables. Check out www.multiplication.com/games for fun multiplication games. See the button below for a link to the website.


  • Social Studies: We will begin studying about maps. If you have any old maps around the house you'd like to donate, we could use them!


  • Student Planners: Check your child's planner for daily updates on what we are learning. If the assignment is to be done as homework, we will indicate this with HW.
