This is week (unit 3, week 3) the kids will learn about space during reading. We’ll read a variety of expository texts about space and space exploration while practicing summarizing, suffixes and main idea. You can expect a spelling list to come home on Monday evening, as well as a reading homework assignment. Last week only 8 kids returned their reading homework, so thank you for helping to ensure your child completes and returns his/her assignment.
In math class, we’ll continue to practice addition and subtraction skills. We’ll work to see the relationship between the two skills, and practice proving our answers by solving an inverse addition or subtraction problem. I anticipate math homework on each evening this week.
In writing, the kids have completed their notes and rough drafts of their presidential profiles. This week, we’ll begin the final draft with a goal of compiling a book of finished reports.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
