Update: Week of April 8

I hope you all had a great spring break and you enjoyed some rest and fun with family and friends!

Here’s an update for our week ahead:

Writing: We are working on responding to a text in writing and we are practicing using strategies so that we can write a clear and complete response. We are also practicing typing out our writing.

Math: We will be finishing up learning about area and perimeter and will be doing some test review at the end of the week. We will plan to have our test next Tuesday, April 16. Please help your child to continue working on multiplication facts at home. We will be nearing the end of our weekly practice pages in the coming weeks.

Reading: We continue to read and study biographies. This week,  your child will be choosing the person that they will read, research, and present. There will be a note coming home in the next week about how you can help your child gather information.
