We are busy talking about matter in science. You can talk with your children about solids, liquids, and gasses.  There will be discussions and quick experiments this week.

Your child is putting aside the interactive notebook in reading this week. There will be an assessment on story elements. When your child finishes reading a book, they can be thinking about the characters, setting, plot, problem and solution.

We will be moving into informational writing this week.  The students had a pre-assessment which entailed writing about something that they know a lot about and can teach someone.

In our Fundations program, we talked about suffixes and prefixes. Our next skill looks at “e” helping vowels make the long sound (ex. cap changing to cape).

For math, we learned many strategies for solving addition equations and will carry over those strategies to now focus on subtraction. This is a good time to brush up on those subtraction facts.

Thank you so much to those of you who participated in our fundraiser. Your orders will be fulfilled once things are finalized with the company. Also, thank you to those of you who sent in ingredients for our snack mix. The children loved it.

Have a great week!
