## Math

This week we began chapter 9 which covers multidigit operations. Students worked on learning a fun, new multiplication game, as well as, solving multiplication and division number stories with multiples of ten. Next week, we will continue to learn about multidigit multiplication and elapsed time.

## Writing

The kids are working on finishing up their nonfiction books, they are doing a really great job with these! In the next week or so, students will be choosing a writing project they want to present for Young Author's Day.

Please look in your child's goal binder for their Friday letter home and write back!

## Social Studies- Economics

In social studies students applied their knowledge of opportunity cost to producers and consumers. They also completed a project on the production steps required to make a certain good. We will continue learning about goods, services, needs, wants, and types of resources next week.

## Important Reminders and Upcoming Events

Our field trip to the Art Museum will be Friday, May 6. Please send your child with sunscreen and a sack lunch that day. Thank you to those of you who volunteered to help out! Please check your email for more information.

Multiplication Party On May 2nd -20th students will be taking daily quizzes to earn the reward of a movie and snacks. Every day, students will take a short multiplication quiz and as they pass each round, they will move to the next round of multiplication facts. With each round they pass, they earn a small part of the final reward. Friends who attend CCL will be able to take the quizzes they missed. The party will in the afternoon on Wednesday, May 24th.
