L.A. Due to the MAP testing schedule and the need for several students to catch up, we will not introduce a new Reading Street lesson this week. Students who have finished everything can do more independent reading or work on their "Genius Hour" Passion Project. Starting this week, Spelling work will be differentiated based on abilities identified to date.

Math We will finish Topic 2 this week, and we will take the Topic Assessment on Thursday and Friday.

Science We are approaching the end of our Energy unit. This week's focus: collisions!
