Coming Next Week...

--LITERACY--


We will continue to compare text this week. Learners will be reading different types of text, both informational and fiction. We will look closely at characters, plot, and theme and compare these concepts. When reading one story with your own child, you may ask him or her to think about how it reminds them of another story you have read. You can do the same for specific characters.


--MATH--


Measurement


This week, we will be finishing up our work with length. We have been working on using tools to measure the length of objects to the nearest 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 of an inch. Length measurement gives our learners the opportunity to physically explore the world around them. We have used many different objects to practice this skill including shoes, crayons, tables, and even the height of students themselves. This standard also brings in the element of visual display which incorporates line plotting the data they have collected.

--GENIUS HOUR UPDATE--

Your child is working on their project now. Ask your child to give you an update!

Some are contacting "experts", others are researching, and some are working towards mastering a skill.

Ask Me About...

Have you ever asked your child what he or she did in school that day, only to hear them say: "Nothing," or "I don't know"? The questions below might help your child start a conversation about what he or she is currently learning in school.


Questions for the "Ask me About" section:


- What are items you can measure around your home? Round each of these items to the nearest half, quarter, and whole inch.

- What end of the ruler do you start your measurement from? How do you know this?



  • If your child doesn't enjoy talking about their day have him or her journal or draw, or both. Journaling is a great way to help your child with their writing skills.

YEARBOOKS

The cost of a yearbook is $55, but if you purchase before April 11, the cost is only $45. You will be able to pay online or send in cash or check with your learner.
