Hello Families! Happy Friday. Here’s our weekly newsletter.
Today we took our second math test of the year.
Next week, we begin two of the more challenging units for the year, which focus on fluent multiplication. If your child does not know their multiplication facts by memory, please spend time having them practice their math facts at home. Dollar Tree and Target both sell multiplication flash cards your child can use at home to practice. There are also online games and videos they can use to help practice.
We are continuing Unit 1 which is about the US Constitution and how it has changed over history. Next week we will be taking our first reading test. We began reading Wonder this week together in class. We will begin our first book report next week.
We are currently learning about food chains and food webs and where living things get their energy from. Our first science project will be coming up in the next few weeks, stay tuned.
We continue learning about the history of slavery in the United States, as it ties into our Benchmark Reading. We are also learning about major historical figures such as Harriet Tubman and Dred Scott. Finally, we continue our focus on the 50 states and capitals as well.
Picture day is coming up on October 7th. Order forms were sent home in Thursday Folders yesterday.
Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
