Here's what we need to KNOW!

Math: We will continue our work with addition and subtraction review before the break. Students need to be able to add and subtract two digit numbers WITH AND WITHOUT regrouping! Quiz your learner to see how they are doing. They should also know their math facts with fluency to 18 (9+9=18)

Science: Students have loved learning about balance! We learned about a really neat man named Phillipe. Ask your learner what he did that was so cool! We will continue our study of motion next week.

Language Arts: This week we will have a short unit on folktales. Learners will be discussing the difference between a folktale and a fairy tale. We have been working on reading and writing goals. Ask your learner how they know if they are becoming a better reader. They should know their reading goal!

Social Studies: This week we will be learning about American Indians. We will be discussing different cultures and how different cultures celebrate differently.
