*Students must show work to receive credit on the math homework. Please remind your child to least attempt each problem and not leave any without work shown. We will go over areas of difficulty in class. We do the math set that corresponds to the homework in class together and they are the same types of problems with different numbers. Students should be able to refer back to this set for help setting up the problems.


Reading:
 

This week, we will continue working on our fourth unit of the year: Narrative. We will be working with narrative texts (stories) about heroic feats. We will cover myths and plays this week. *Vocabulary Quiz and Story Selection Quiz will take place
FRIDAY!

Please make sure your child completes their nightly Reading Log for homework! This is a major contributor to their reading grade!

*Students will need to fill out all parts of the log for credit and may use the prompts on the back to help form their thoughts.


*Students will receive one "free pass" per trimester on homework. If homework is not complete after the free pass, they will have to go to the homework room to finish their assignments during lunch and recess.


Writing:

 This week, we will continue working on our Narrative Unit. Students will learn about story elements, such as plot, characters, events, and theme and they will write a story about someone who has made a difference.


Spelling:

Spelling will be incorporated into our new ELA Curriculum and go along with the new Reading and Writing Curriculum. 

*THIS WEEK'S SPELLING LIST:
steel, steal, aloud, allowed, lesson, lessen, who’s, whose, manor, manner, pedal, peddle, berry, bury, hanger, hangar, overdo, overdue, rain, reign

SPELLING TEST ON FRIDAY!!

SCIENCE:
