Homework will be a little different this week for a few reasons. First, it's a short week. I don't usually like assigning spelling words during a short week, but we took so many breaks before Christmas and I want to keep the momentum going from last week. To balance out the spelling homework, I did not assign any writing or math. Reading is still an option...always a good option! The other difference is a special assignment to choose a famous person to study in our upcoming biography unit. I sent home a letter in the Monday Folders that will guide you in helping your child choose a famous person. I also included a long list of names for you to consider, but are not limited to. I encourage you to have a fun time with this assignment as a family. Take the time to talk about some of the famous people your child knows and impress them with your knowlege of famous people. Choose someone that you are both excited about. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
In class this week...
Math: We will taking the chapter math test on Wednesday. Thursday we will start introducing double digit subtraction with regrouping.
Writing: The students wrote some very thoughtful "dreams" of their own last week during our study of MLK, Jr. They also wrote about MLK, Jr's dream. We will focus on taking notes this week.
