Happy May!
This trimester,we are focusing on opinion and persuasive writing.  This is always fun for students!
We are also learning about digraphs, glued sounds, suffix -s, -ed, -ing, blends, and r-controlled vowels! 
In math, we are working with place value (tens and ones), finding numbers on a
 hundreds chart, and continuing with addition and subtraction fluency.
We are starting map skills and will be talking about communities.  The children will learn where they are in the world.
Please be sure to review these skills at home.  This will only help reinforce skills.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at bcosta@pelhamsd.org :)
I look forward to a great year!
