Need Tablet Help at Home? There is a parent/student resource folder available to you! This contains help sheets and instructions on how to use various apps, how to access materials, and some tablet basics. We will be adding more resources to the folder, so check back often!

We are finally back to our normal Literacy routine! This week, we focused on making generalizations, writing a couplet poem using synonyms, and learning the difference between indefinite and reflexive pronouns. Fun!
We also spent some time editing the letters we wrote to request an autograph from a person of the student's choice. We practiced our signatures, addressed the envelopes, and the letters will be mailed in the next couple of days. I can't wait to see if anyone receives a response!
Most people have turned in the Famous Person permission/choice form, which is due Tuesday, 3/17. If you haven't already found a book (biography) on the famous person, this weekend would be a great time to do this since I'll be giving the students some class work time to start researching and taking notes for their papers.
Battle of the Books (BOB) reading is progressing! Students should be finishing their 5th book by the end of this week in order complete the required reading for participation in the event, which is May 1st. Happy Reading!
PLEASE be sure you child is practicing their math facts each night! It will make the homework process easier for those who are still struggling to multiply and divide without using their fingers :)
