    I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  It’s Read Across America Week.  See below for dress-up days.  Please make sure you are checking your child’s binder each night.  Important school information as well as graded papers go home daily.  Please take a few minutes to review what is happening in the forest.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Have a fantastic week 😊

     

    Below is what we are learning this week:

    Math: This week, we will continue with our unit on fractions.  Students will compare decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size.  There will be a lesson quiz on Wednesday.  Please ensure that your child is completing math homework every night.  Homework counts as a grade and should have work shown for each problem to avoid a deduction of 10 points. 

    ELA (Reading/Writing/Word Study: Our focus this week is finding the main idea and supporting details in a text.  We will continue with our chapter book There’s an Owl in the Shower.  Please ensure your child is completing their questions each night.  Homework requires that all responses are answered in complete sentences to avoid a loss of 10 points. 

    Science: We will continue with our unit on forces and motion.  Students will recognize the basic forms of energy (light, sound, heat, electrical, and magnetic) as the ability to cause motion or create change.

    Social Studies: Students will learn about working and living on the coastal plain.  There will be an open-book test on Friday.
