I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and spring break! When we come back from break we will begin math Chapter 11 (graphs). This is will be fun and quick chapter so make sure that your child is understanding and doing their homework. We will continue with unit 5 lesson 2 of our reading series. Our story will be “United States Citizenship” and we will be learning phonics concepts /ow/ spelled ow and ou as well as suffixes -er, -or, -ness. Our science concept we will begin is the life cycle of a butterfly. Students will be learning verb tenses and how to write a friendly letter. We will continue learning cursive in the classroom.
- Please make sure that your child is reading their AR books and taking tests on them at school. Accelerated Reader will be counted as two grades (one for reaching their point goal and one for the average of the tests). Students have until May 21st to reach their point goal.
- Part of your child’s Math grade is getting 2 green lights a week on Reflex Math. Please make sure your child is logging on at least twice a week and getting those green lights.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and spring break!
