What's Up Next Week?
What's up next week? In math, we will practice our rounding skills, then use them to estimate the answer to word problems. In writing, we will be writing our informational paper on an extreme event. Ask your child what extreme event they are studying. You will probably learn a fact or two! In social studies, we will be studying the man-made and physical features of these great United States. Be prepared to hear about how hot it is in Death Valley and what imaginary line runs across the top of the Rocky Mountains. Cities such as Boston, New York, and Philadelphia will also be included. Our reading will include health-related topics. And here come homophones: aloud and allowed, hire and higher, and principal and principle. We could all use practice on their, they're, and there! On a side note, some students were not happy with their spelling test grade today. While this doesn't happen often, a retest will be given on Monday for those students who need to raise their grade. Study to mastery over the weekend, and see how much improvement can be made with hard work! All students interested in raising their grade will be allowed to retest.
