In Our Classroom

Reading/Spelling - We've been working on assessing the students and placing them into groups to work on comprehension strategies, word patterns, and vocabulary. 

Writing - We have started with descriptive writing and are working on developing engaging topic sentences and using adjectives to improve our writing. 

Math - We are focused on fraction concepts and solving addition and subtraction problems using both like and unlike denominators.

Science - Our first unit is Parts and Wholes, where we are exploring the concepts of matter.

Please have your student practice their multiplication facts 1-9!!
