I’d like to take this time to thank you all for meeting with me this week to discuss your child’s academic progress. I enjoyed our discussions and I look forward to continuing our working relationship. 

Here’s what we’re learning…

Reading: RI2- Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details. We’ll also learn how to summarize nonfictional text during our guided reading groups. We will focus on these reading standards for the next 3 weeks.

Writing: W2- Opinion Essays

Math: OA4 and NBT5 – Students will use multiples and number patterns to multiply. They will determine the difference between prime/composite numbers and factors vs. multiples.

Social Studies: We are learning about the causes of the American Revolution.
