This is just a gentle reminder to have a discussion with your child about not bringing toys, purses, gadgets, and other distracting items to school. In addition, please support me at home by talking to them about staying on task and not minding the business of others. We have many standards to cover and so much fun and exciting things to learn. I do not want anything to get in the way of us being the BEST we can be!!!

Please add our class to your shopping list this week!! We are totally out of the following items: GLUE STICKS, TISSUES, & HAND SANITIZER. We would appreciate it if you could donate these items. Thank you!

Math: Study multiplication facts daily! We will have a multiplication quiz every Friday. Everyone should know up to their 6 tables by now. Please have your child to practice using flashcards, writing them down, skip counting songs, and playing games on This week, we will continue to review the properties of multiplication. We will begin to multiply one digit whole numbers by multiples of 10 in the 10-90 range for example: 9×80, 5×60 using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.

Reading: Please have your child to read each night and fill out the reading log. They must read nighty in order to increase reading level, fluency and comprehension. For the next two weeks, we will ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to texts as a basis for answers (finding and citing text evidence).

ELA/Writing: We will be researching turkeys and writing an informative/explanatory research paper on the subject. Once that is completed, each student will choose their own animal to research and write a research paper for it as well. Students will learn to research/gather information online, introduce the topic, develop facts, details, definitions, use linking words, categorize ideas, and provide a concluding statement or section. In grammar, we will learn to use and form regular and irregular verbs for example: send/sent, tell/told, drive/drove

Social Studies: This unit will focus on the European exploration of North America. It will include the reasons for exploration and obstacles faced along the way.
