There is no formal book talk this month. Just choose a Good Fit novel and enjoy reading throughout the month. Students will respond in writing to various questions in class throughout the month. They will also add their book to our ongoing Bookworm.
Make sure you are practicing both multiplication and division facts each night as we are using them in higher level computation and problem solving.
Students will have a weekly spelling list. The list will be based on a weekly spelling concept however, students may have different words to meet their individual needs. The spelling list will go home in the agenda each Monday and students will “work” with these words throughout the week. On Friday morning, they will be tested on their own list. Students will also be assessed on their ability to transfer their spelling into every day work.
Word of the Day
From Monday to Thursday, students will be introduced to a new word of the day. Thesese words are more difficult and they are meant to build their vocabulary for reading, writing, and conversation. Each day, the students are challenged to use the word in their writing and speech. We share how they did this at the end of the day. They are also encouraged to use these words at home. Please ask your child about their Word of the Day
