In language arts this week, we did the reader’s theater Bear Went Over the Mountain, practicing our fluency and expression. Next week, we will begin a new unit focusing on cause and effect and making connections. In writing, we will do a couple of weeks of review on personal narratives. In math, we are in a two week unit on fractions of a set. The test will be on Friday, April 28. Please look for a practice test/ study guide to come home the day before. The unit after that will be another one focusing on addition, subtraction, number sense, and word problems. In science, we are learning about natural resources.
Throughout the month of May, I will be doing one-on-one reading and math assessments with your children, to monitoring the growth from the beginning of the year.
