English Language Arts...What are we doing?
Grammar- We are continuing to look at capitalizing words, abbreviating things, using commas, as well as sorting singular and plural nouns.
Writing- We are going to wrap up opinion writing this week, but will revisit soon. Next week we will start "How to Writing" with informational text (nonfiction). To see what all your child has written so far, ask them to login to the MGSD Digital Resources page, click on Google, and then login. There you will see any writing your child has done or is in the process of doing.

Math...What are we doing?
Skills being looked at this week include addition/subtraction with/without regrouping and measurement. Ask your child to measure things around the house in centimeters or inches to practice. Some still struggle with where to line up the ruler to measure. Addition and subtraction is an easy skill you can practice with basic math problems that require you to "carry the 1" or "borrow". We also continue to work on word problems to set up and solve using a variety of strategies. :)
**If you see a triangle math strategy problem, don't worry about using the triangle...it's a strategy that has confused most students in our class. The math homework is by grade level and any strategy to solve math problems is appropriate.**
