Hope everyone had a good holiday with family and friends…
We have a full week of school!!!
Language Arts: We are on to Lesson 10. The focus is Author’s Purpose (for writing.) We will go over the target vocabulary -?what words can your child tell you? We are also focusing on pronouns-ask your child to name many pronouns!!! We will also review Idioms and Antonyms and Synonyms this week.
Homework: Each night your child will have their Writer’s Notebook with them. They will have written a writing prompt and must write at leat one paragraph in answering the prompt. These prompts will focus on their AR book. Each paragraph is due the next day and will be shared with a classmate. 30 minutes of reading each night…
Math: We will complete Lessons 4.2-4.5 this week. All these lessons will focus on the decimal and it’s uses. Today’s lesson was a bit of a challenge-they have their worksheet and should show it to you!!!
Homework: Lessons 42.through 4.5, Monday through Thursday.
Science: We are making series and parallel circuits. Your child should be able to explain the difference!! What else can they tell you about the flow of energy?D-Cells? Wires (insulators and conductors)? Ask them to explain what they have learned!!
Social Studies: We will learn about government, our economy (or lack there-of:( ), free market and how these controls work. Ask your child what they learned today.

Thanks for all your help with homework and your child reading at least 30 minutes each night!!! It does make a difference!!!
