Our class will begin with Kansas Assessments on Tuesday. They will take tests for three days this week, then continue after Spring Break. We appreciate you helping your student by giving them positive feedback about their ability to complete the tests. Students will do awesome job.


This week in reading, we will be exploring Tall Tales. While reading numerous tall tales, we will focus on visualizing as we read as well as identifying the point of view in a story. At the beginning of the week, the students will wrap up the work that they have done with Greek and Latin roots by participating in a gallery walk where they will learn from their classmates. Ask your students about this experience after class on Monday. Grades will be updated at the beginning of this week. This is a great opportunity to visit with your students about their performance as well as any missing assignments that they might have.


Next week in math we will work on operations with fractions and developing an understanding of area. Please check your child's progress on Skyward. The grade cards come out the week we get back from Spring break.

We will be completing out Personal Hero Reports and adding them to our See Saw account! Be sure to check them out! Also, mid-terms are coming up and some students have missing assignments. Please check the Skyward account and also visit with your child concerning any missing assignments! Please let me know if you have any questions. We will continue to work on writing this week by reading an article on their newsela App and then responding in their writing journals.
