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.


  • Literacy: We are finishing up our research on space and natural disasters. We have been using Google Classroom, which allows students to access their projects anywhere they have internet access. If you have internet access, ask your child to introduce you to Google Classroom and explain some of the things we've been learning through this exciting feature. Students are strongly encouraged to read at home every night, even if it is 10 minutes here and there.


  • Math: We will continue working on multi-digit multiplication and will begin division. Check out www.multiplication.com/games for fun multiplication games. See the button below for a link to the website.


  • Social Studies: We will learn about our government and its founding documents.


  • 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.
