What We Are Learning This Week
Language Arts: This week,we will be reading Salt In His Shoes by Delores Jordan. We will write summaries of the story and learn more about figurative and literal phrases. In spelling this week, we will be studying words with the consonants ph, gh, ck, and ng. Our spelling test will be on Friday, April 15th.
***Homework: Your child should have brought home a book that is on his/her independent reading level. They should be able to read it and fill out the Book Report form by Friday, April 15th. You may want your child to read a couple of pages out loud so that you can hear his/her fluency- or even ask a couple of questions each day. ***

Math: This week we will continue our unit on fractions. Students will partition strips and lines into halves, fourths, and eighths. Students will be able to answer questions like, "Who gets more and why?" regarding fractional parts.
Science: Students will continue exploring magnets this week through many different activities. Students will be able to list places magnets are used in everyday life.
