If your child sold Butterbraids you will be receiving an updated camp balance this week. Remember to turn in the camp health history form as soon as possible.
I’m excited to announce that our nonfiction project on Donorschoose has been fully funded and we should receive our new books as early as this week! Thank you to all families who donated and supported us. I know the students will be ecstatic to receive these resources to expand their knowledge.
Some students received extra support homework in math (computing decimals) and handwriting last week. All work is due this Friday, 11/3. Please ask your child if he/she received any extra support homework and review it with our child before turning it in.
Here is what is happening this week:
Tuesday: Halloween – this is a regular day of school for us, so please no costumes, candy, or anything else that is distracting. I will NOT be assigning any homework on this day.
Friday: extra support homework due
Here is what we will be learning:
Language Arts – We will begin Unit 4, The Reader’s Perspective, and start off with some poems, “The Road Not Taken,” and “The Road.”
Writing – We will work on informative/explanatory writing and discuss thesis statements.
Math – This week’s lessons from module 2 include: odd & even numbers, divisibility rules, greatest common factor (GCF), least common multiple (LCM).
Social Studies – We will begin our study of ancient Egypt. Students will be reading from the text, taking notes, and completing a culminating project within the next four weeks. Students will have an option of working by themselves for the project or with ONE other partner.
