Students are busy composing realistic fiction narratives. Students will build characters and think about the heart of the story.

Social Studies

Students will study the influence of European explorers who landed in Texas. This week we will study Cabeza de Vaca and Coronado. Check out the links to learn more about these explorers at home.

Math

Students will be finishing up our unit on using problem solving models to for multi-step word problems. Continue supporting your child at home by having them practice long division, and the standard algorithm for multiplication.


Next week, we will begin our Personal Financial Literacy unit with our shopping project. If you have any flyers for items that include prices, please send them to school with your child.

Science

Students will finish up Force, Motion, and Energy this week. Students are designing experiments that test the effect of force (gravity, magnetism, friction) on an object. Don't forget: there is a test on Friday.
