Please make sure your child is practicing the spelling words several times a week. The spelling lists contains words that have the spelling pattern for the week as well as memory words. Ask your child: what is silent at the end of a words when the words ends in –le.
This week in literacy, your child will start their first book club. We have finished reading our non fiction Super Magazine.

Ask your child, what did you write about in your book talk journal?
This week in writing, we are discussing run on sentences and how to fix them. Your child will also begin the drafting process of writing their autobiography. Ask your child to give you and example of a run on sentence. How would they make it shorter?
This week in math, we will really dive into story problems and analyze the vocabulary needed to solve them. We will start with comparison problems. Ask your child: Mrs. Brady has 25 pencils.
