We will take our math test over Money, Multiplication, and Division on Monday. We are just not going to get to it this week.

Please keep our kids reading till the end of the year. I will be doing a reading assessment and a fluency check for the end of the year records.

Reading: We will discover how adding letters to the beginning or end of a base word can change the meaning of the word or how it is used in our reading and writing. These few letters are called prefixes and suffixes.

Writing: We will be reviewing how to create a good title and how to write a good paragraph.

Spelling and Grammar:

Spelling words this week: fall, find, hold, must, those, think, probably

Grammar will be a review of the parts of speech: noun, verb, adjective, adverb.

Science: We will learn how organisms depend on each other through the food chain, focusing on producers and consumers with plants and animals.

Math: In math we will discuss financial literacy. Students will learn how money saved can accumulate into a larger amount over time, explain that saving is an alternative to spending, identify examples of responsible spending, and plan a purchase based on an allowance.
