September 17th, 2018 – Constitution Week

Good Morning Families!

This week the kids will celebrate “Constitution Day” by learning about the United States Constitution, and learn how our country came into existence.  Our reading theme for the week matches perfectly, as the kids will learn also learn about the “National Mall” in Washington, D.C., as well as a number of other famous landmarks in America.  This is always a special week for me, as I love learning about history.  You can expect a spelling list to come home this evening, as we wrap up week 5 of Unit 1.

In Writing, we’ll begin a couple week process of researching a president and writing a mini-report.  The kids are blessed to have some wonderful digital resources, and we’ll learn how to take notes, write a rough draft, and then type a final draft.  I hope to have this completed by conferences, so you can see the finished product.

In Math this week, the kids will explore multiplication and division with 1s and 0s, and learn to identify and write word problems.  Towards the end of the week we’ll begin reviewing for our Unit 1 Test in Math next week.  In my Math class, I’m planning on assigning homework on the following dates.  However, if we have a rough lesson or something doesn’t go well, I may have to amend the following.

Monday – No Homework

Tuesday – Homework 1-15

Wednesday – Homework 1-16

Thursday – Homework Test Review 1

Friday – Homework Test Review 2 (possibly?)

Thanks for reading and have a great week!
