Week of: November 13 - 17



Math:

This week we will continue working on dividing decimals. Please help your child learn and remember the multiplication facts by studying 10 minutes each night with them. Please focus on the 3's - 8's.  

Homework is given Monday-Thursday in Math class.



Writing:

In our block 4 class we have learned the 5 step process of writing to compose narratives and will always be working on a writing piece. We are now focusing on improving writing skills that are commonly done incorrectly, such as using I and me correctly, capitalizing proper nouns, and using commas correctly Each week we also incorporate listening activities. Writing class is every 3 days.
