MCA Testing

Last week we completed the Math MCA Test! This week (Monday-Wednesday), we will be taking our Reading MCA Test. Please help remind students to get lots of rest, eat a good breakfast, and to do their BEST!

It is also helpful for students to have a good chapter book here at school, so that they have something to read in case they should finish early within the session.

What Are We Working On This Week?

Character Education: In April, we are working on the traits of Fair/Equity.

Reader's Workshop: MCA TEST

Spelling/Word Study: Due to MCA Testing this week, we will NOT have a spelling list again this week.

Writer's Workshop: Writing for Argument (Chocolate Milk vs. White Milk)

Math: Unit 7- Multiplying and Dividing Decimals

Science: Unit 8 - Changes to Earth's Surface TEST on Wednesday (study guide went home last week)

Social Studies: this subject is taught by Mrs. Kornder. Please check your child's agenda daily to see if they have homework in this area. Questions, please
