It is difficult to believe we are wrapping we are into the fourth marking-period. In math, we are working on Unit 9, more multiplication. Students are exploring a number of strategies for multiplying double digit factors. Mastery of basic multiplication facts is essential to students' success. We encourage you to have your child utilize the variety of resources provided for practice.
In reading, we are into Unit 6. Our Big Question is, "What does it mean to be free?". Students have been exploring a variety of genres: poetry, narrative nonfiction and realistic fiction. Students have been learning about theme, symbolism and point of view. Students will continue to utilize nonfiction texts in reading and other subject areas--highlighting use of text features.
