Here is an update for the week:
Writing: We will be practicing some constructed response writing before moving on to Literary Essays. We will be learning to answer a question about a text with complete sentences and detail.
Math: We are learning to use different strategies for 3 digit addition and subtraction. We are practicing with word problems too. We are also working hard with rounding to the nearest ten and hundred.
Please continue helping your child with multiplication practice with flashcards and MobyMax.
Social Studies: We begin learning about the French in Michigan and about the fur trade.
Reading: We will be practicing reading a selection and responding with a written response. We will move on to Biography reading next week. Please continue to support your child as a reader and encourage them to be reading 20 minutes at least 5 days a week. Keep track of this on the monthly homework reading calendar.
**Conference appointment slips went home last week. Make sure you found the bright yellow paper in your child’s folder. I look forward to sharing the progress your child has made.
