An Update on Our Hard Work!

Hi Parents!

Your kids have been working very hard! We will continue to dig in as we approach the Christmas Break!

We are beginning a new Reading Unit on Informational Texts where we will learn how to preview, predict, tap prior knowledge, and determine the main idea of the books we read. I’m sure we will be able to learn many new and interesting things from our books and from each other!

In Writing, we are beginning the study of Personal/Opinion Essay! You’re about to find out how your child feels about some BIG ideas out there in our world 🙂

It’s Division time! Yes! We are digging into Division (as promised!). Please check out the links I have under the Long Division heading on the right column of the blog. PLEASE encourage your child to practice division on Mathfactspro!

We wrap up our Government Unit with a test early this week! Please help your child study the packet that was sent home. Our next unit is all about The Bill of Rights! Check out a couple of videos that we use in class…

Bill of Rights/Shake It Off

Bill of Rights Rap

Rights, Rights Baby

Yeah, they’re corny, but they help 🙂

Spelling Tic-Tac-Toe is due on Friday, Dec. 4. We’ll also have a spelling test.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
