This week we will be working on writing constructed responses for math problems.  Students will be practicing restating the question with an answer and using math vocabulary to explain the process they took to solve the problem.

We are also still working on computation skills and working carefully and accurately.  Little mistakes are our biggest problem as students understand the processes, but they are still making careless errors.

There will be a computation quiz on Tuesday.

This week we are comparing and contrasting characters, setting, and plots in dramas.  We will be reading short plays and discussing the story elements and how they affect the plot.

We will also be continuing to read books of choice in class and analyzing the story elements listed above.

Students should be reading a book of their choice every day during school and every evening at home.  This should be the biography book for their project this week.   They should have taken their 1st AR test or written letters by Friday, March 29th.
