    winter

    I hope you enjoyed your weekend. This week will be a busy one.  Please take a few minutes to review what is happening in the forest.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Enjoy your week 😊

     Below is what we are learning this week:

    Math: This week, we will continue with our fraction unit.  Students will be adding, subtracting, and decomposing fractions.  There will be a quiz on Friday.  Please ensure your child is completing homework each night and that all homework has work shown for each problem. I cannot assist your child with understanding his/her mistakes, if they have no work on their paper. Homework that is missing work will result in a deduction of 10 points.

    ELA (Reading/Writing/Word Study):  We will finish up with plot - the series of events that take place in a story.  Students will work on identifying the parts of the plot – exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.  There will be a plot diagram quiz on Friday.  Students have the diagram/notes in their reading journal.  We will also continue with our chapter book - There’s an Owl in the Shower.  Nightly homework will consist of students answering chapter questions based on the chapters that we read and discussed in class.  Just a reminder that reading responses MUST be answered in complete sentences to avoid a deduction of 10 points. 

    Science:  Unit test on Friday.  A study guide was sent home last week. 

    Social Studies:  Students will read and learn what factors influenced the development of the Coast Plain communities.
