What we are learning this week:
Math: We have begun our rotating with new teachers. In our new classes we have started multiplication as "groups of." We will also discuss multiplication as repeated addition and begin exploring arrays.
Reading: We are working on sequencing and questioning.
Spelling:  This week spelling is the schwa sound. 
Grammar: We will be learning about verbs. 
Writing: Students will be learning how to write an opinion.
Science/Social Studies: We are continuing our unit on Keyboarding.
Homework: Students will be completing Homework Packet #6. It will have their spelling and review words as well as the vocabulary words to study. Students do not need to know how to spell the vocabulary words, just know the definitions. Also included in their homework packet is a grammar page and two math pages. If students work on one page a night, they should be successful. Students should also be reading 20 minutes per school night. Reading calendars are on the school website if you need one to keep track of minutes.
