Welcome Back

I hope you have had a fun and restful spring break! My husband and I have been working on packing our house to move. We are excited to move, but it is a lot of work! :) Due to closing dates and moving I will have a sub on Tuesday and Thursday this week.


Famous American bags, books, and completed papers are due Monday, March 23rd. Thank you for helping your child with this exciting project.

Loving Learning

Reading

NO SPELLING TEST OR PACKET THIS WEEK

We will work on becoming more fluent while reading. We will also work on comprehension skills before, during, and after reading.


Writing

We will begin a new fictional writing unit. This week we will work on creating a character with a beginning, middle, and end. We will work on using exciting words to bring the story to life and they students will use a checklist to see what they can add.


Math

We will begin a new geometry unit. The students will identify plane shapes, make an organized list, identify properties of plane shapes, build with shapes, and make new shapes from shapes.


Science

We will discuss fair tests and go through the steps of the scientific process. We will complete several experiments this week using peeps. If you volunteered to send items, please send them in on Monday the 23rd.
