Math & Science

In math we will be working in stations throughout the week. The stations will have a variety of topics with a focus on measurement.

In science we will be learning about body systems. We will focus on the nervous, circulatory, respiratory, and digestive systems and how they work together.

Reading & Social Studies

In Language Arts, students will continue working on their book report. Book reports are due May 9. The majority of this report will be completed at school, so students shouldn't have much homework for this assignment. Be sure to ask your student which book they have picked and how they are presenting their information!

In Social Studies, we will be learning about the causes of the Civil War. Students will be participating in an Underground Railroad simulation towards the end of the week. Ask them which role they played during the simulation!
