Quarter 1 Week 6

Picture day is this week on Thursday, the 14th so make sure you come to school looking your best!

Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, the 20th from 6:00-7:00. That evening we will be holding Math and Phonics night. We will be here to show you to how to help your child at home with homework and new concepts in the areas of language arts and math!

Language Arts:
Students should continue to memorize “The Crocodile” as the recitation is on Wednesday, the 13th. We will read chapters 24-27 of Pinocchio and begin an opinion essay about the book which will result in an assessment score for both Literature and Writing. In grammar, will learn about the four types of sentences, proper nouns, and paragraph editing.

In math, we will review subtraction and learn how to borrow from 3 place values. The Wednesday math groups will serve as a review and there will be a quiz afterwards. After Wednesday, we will work on two-part word problems and quiz over them on Friday after a review practice session. Looking forward there will be a Unit 2 test over addition and subtraction (involving word problems) on Tuesday, the 19th.

This week we will continue learning about the life cycle of amphibians as well as working on persuasive writing to choose the best class (mammals, reptiles, etc). There will be a quiz friday over amphibians.

We will begin learning about the country of Canada this week. The children will come to understand how the history of the U.S. and Canada are interrelated.
