What's New This Week?

Language Arts


In Lesson 8, our Essential Question this week is “How do you know what a story is mostly about?” Target skills are main ideas, details, and visualizing. Phonics skills this week will focus on consonant digraphs (ch/sh/wh/ch/tch/ph) and base words and endings (-s, -ed, -ing).

In writing we will continue learning how to write to inform.

Math

ENVISIONS MATH

We will begin topic 5 on MONEY this week. Money can be challenging. It is most helpful to practice counting money in everyday experiences, such as paying for something at a store.

** If your child has any difficulty with the homework, it would be helpful to go on the Pearson website for review of the lesson. Once logged in, go to the upper right “TO DO” and your child can go through the exact lesson from the day. The username and password can be found in your child's homework book.

FIRST IN MATH
