This Week

  • Spelling: We will begin working on new words this week. Students were given a copy to practice at home to prepare for our test on Friday.

  • Reading: This week we will continue reading a fantasy fiction book, The Trumpet of the Swan, by E.B. White. Students are strongly encouraged to read at home every night, even if it is 10 minutes here and there.

  • Writing: This week we will continue writing a personal narrative, a story that actually happened.

  • Math: We are working on subtraction of multi-digit numbers. For example, students are working problems like 956,204 - 780,169. Feel free to pose problems like this at home and ask your child to check their work using addition. At home, students should be practicing their multiplication facts, especially the 6x tables. Check out for fun multiplication games. See the button below for a link to the website.

  • Social Studies: We will begin studying about maps. If you have any old maps around the house you'd like to donate, we could use them!

  • Student Planners: Check your child's planner for daily updates on what we are learning. If the assignment is to be done as homework, we will indicate this with HW.
