Use the following link the access our full math module! You will need to scroll down to the "Downloadable Resources" portion of the page and click the first link to view the full module as a PDF.

This site will not show you the work on the homework problems specifically, but does contain a full lesson showing how to do these types of problems. Homework answers only (without work shown) can be found in the last pages of the module.


**PARENTS: Check out this awesome resource at the link below for homework help! It has worked through problem sets with the answers and videos for each grade and each module lesson!**:


*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.


This week, we will continue working on our second unit of the year: Informational. We will be working with informational texts related to the five senses.*Vocabulary quiz THURSDAY; Story Selection Quiz 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.


This week, we will continue working on our Informational Unit. Students have been drafting and revising their next piece, which will cover an animal of the students' choosing. Their final copy is due Friday!


Spelling will be incorporated into our new ELA Curriculum and go along with the new Reading and Writing Curriculum. TESTS WILL BE ON FRIDAY!
