We have one week left before Spring Break, and then we will have off from March 25 until April 1st. We'll return to school on Tuesday, April 2nd. We have a lot of learning planned for this week.
In Math, we'll have our assessment over Topic 11 on Tuesday. Students can go online and complete the practice test on the pearson website for extra practice.. We're also starting Topic 17, Data and Graphs, this week.
In Reading we'll start our new read aloud, Turtle in Paradise, by Jennifer Holm. The One and Only Ivan was very thought provoking, and we will continue to do activities with that book even after Spring Break. We will also be working on setting this week, which includes three parts: time, place and environment.
In Word Study, we will focus on contractions. In writing, we will finish our point of view piece and then write a letter to an author. As always, you can log on to your child's kidblog to see their writing if it has not come home yet. They are doing a great job and showing a lot of creativitiy.
Specials this week: Monday - Art, Tuesday - PE, Wednesday - Library, Thursday - Music, Friday - Art
