What we are learning.

Language Arts Focus:


This is our last week before we take the CAASPP. We will focus on reading comprehension and continue to work on the practice version of the CAASPP.

We will spend a lot of time reviewing this week. There will be a packet sent home and Tenmarks assignments to work on. The combination of these will help review what we have gone over this year.


We will also spend some time working on graphing.
