Welcome to the New Year! I hope your holiday time went well. The last day before break was wonderful and thank you to all that helped out bringing in food for the holiday party! Mrs. Greenwood and Mrs. Kane helped organize the party and really helped out.
In ELA the students will be focusing on informational teaching text, noting their attributes and supporting claims with evidence from the text. Students will be re-reading reading passages to use meaning to decode unknown words. A new reading step calendar has been sent home. Students should read a total of 93 total steps this month. In writing we are starting informational essays in a ipad piece.
Math is moving along into calculating area. Please make sure your son or daughter is bringing home their Homework Helper to help out with the Homework Sets. Math fact practice at home can use IXL or flash cards. Please focus on 0-9 multiplication and be moving on to division.
Social Studies will be starting in on Mexico, its geography, economics and government which is being explored in a student written tour guide format.
Please call 874-8410 or email with any questions or things we need to discuss. My email address is email@example.com or use my voice mailbox at 39150.
Sincerely, Ms. Mancuso
