What's Going on in reading?

We are reading The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.  It is the first book in a really good series!

How about writing?

In Writing we are exploring fantasy.  We will soon add a poetry component to our writing unit.

And math?  

In  math we are working on Fractions.  It would be really helpful if you would practice multiplication facts with your children.

What about HW?  Students will have reading homework every night. Some nights it will be to finish a class assignment, the other nights they are to read their free reading books and log their time. (Minimum of 20 mins.)

Students also have spelling homework 2 nights per week. Usually Tuesday and Wednesday.

Math homework is given occasionally.  They can always practice their skills by playing Prodigy. I load new skills to it weekly.
