It sure was wonderful to meet with you and discuss your child's progress!
We are wrapping up the unit on main idea with a test on Tuesday. But, we will continue to revisit this throughout the year.
Our new writing focus is informational writing ,which has been introduced with some of the main idea passages. The students have chosen a topic to research for developing an informational paragraph. This will lead into an informational essay towards the end of the month. You can view notes in your child's writing journal.
In reading, we will be making the connection to text structure. This includes identifying : description; compare & contract; sequencing; problem & solution; and cause & effect.
Homophones will remain a focus this week. Students will be assessed this coming Friday.
In math, students are learning new strategies on solving multi-digit multiplication problems. They will be bringing home their journal to assist them with homework. Please be sure that their journals return to school daily to have in-class.
Have wonderful weekend!
