I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Last Friday the second quarter report cards were released on Infinite Campus. Login to see your child’s report card for the second quarter. Next Monday there will be no school for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. On Thursday of this week students will be taking their perimeter test in math. See the study guide that went home on Friday to help prepare for it. We will be reviewing for it in class during the week. On Friday students will have their spelling test using the list given to them last week. In social studies students will continue to learn map skills and in science students will learn about animal adaptations. Last week we started The Great Cake Mystery in class to go along with our mystery genre. Students also began to learn how to understand and find the main idea in a text. Students wrote their first multi paragraph essay last week. As we move forward into the school year students will be increasing the amount of writing they do in order to provide more details. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
