Dear Families,

I hope you had a restful and relaxing break. I enjoyed spending lots of time with friends and family.

In math, we are still in our multiplication and division unit. This is a good time to review the multiplication facts with your child.

In reading, students continue to enjoy their book partnerships. Partner meetings happen each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Students need to read at least 30 pages per night. They need to write a reading journal entry for each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We are working on keeping the discussion going by asking each other questions.

In writing, we are beginning opinion writing. This will lead us to literary essay writing in a few weeks.

In social studies, we are beginning to learn about the colonies.

I wish you all the best for a wonderful 2018!!

Best Wishes,
