Spalding: Students will be sent home with their homework packet on Monday night and then asked to spell their words three times each night. We will have a 30 word spelling test and a written phonogram quiz next Friday. Make sure you are reviewing phonograms 1-70 with your students at home.
Math: This week we will begin adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. Continue to do XtraMath each night, your scholar is expected to complete XtraMath 5 times this week.
Science: We will begin a new science unit on magnetism this week. Make sure that your students are writing two COMPLETE sentences in their journal to get full credit for homework. We will have a quiz on Friday to review the material.
Reading: In class we will begin reading The Hundred Dresses written by Eleanor Estes. Please continue to read with your students for 20 minutes each night. You may let them read any book at home. As we continue developing their reading skills in the classroom it is so helpful to have this reinforced at home. If you are looking for good books to read at home, please email one of us and we can give you a list!
Poetry: On Friday your student brought home a copy of the poem we are beginning to memorize in class. Please help them to work on memorizing the poem for recitation.
