    Our class is continuing inferring personality traits and how characters change in a story.  Also, seeing how their motivations shape the story being read.  In writing, we are shifting between answering short answer questions on these subjects and writing opinion pieces.  Spelling, grammar and punctuation are being taught in mini lessons. It's a little slow going due to the weather and days off.  As always, 2 steps a night (30 mins.) reading five times a week, is beneficial to your students reading growth. Their reading goal is 94 steps this month.

    Science is shifting to life sciences and Social studies (later on in the month) we will be exploring China. That country's  geography, economy and culture will be covered.

    In math, the main focus is fractions. Understanding relationships of fractions to one whole (equivalences), size, greater than a whole and less than a whole. By now students should have mastered 0-9 in multiplication and be well into divison facts.  Please practice if 0-9 math facts aren't known.
