Hello, I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Last week each student finished up their historical fiction book during class reading groups. I will be putting students into new class reading groups this week. Also last week as a whole class we began reading Skylark to continue with our study on historical fiction. Students are continuing to learn about affixes and character traits as well this week and next. A reading log will be going home on Monday and students will have a spelling test this Friday on their words they received last week. If your child’s words have been misplaced please let me know and I will send another copy home. For science students began their new unit on the roles of living things. We will continue with this unit into the third grading period. During social studies this week we will begin wrapping up our pioneers unit. During math we will also be wrapping our area unit. Students will have a study guide coming home this week and a test next week as well. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
