Dear 4-243 Families,

Good Morning.  I want to just write a brief note to keep you up to date on what’s happening here in class.  We continue to learn about the Revolutionary War period through readings, note taking, and watching some video.  Our Wingspan program will be linked to our Social Studies Curriculum and I did want to remind you that on Monday, March 26th, we have a short presentation in the auditorium from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m.  to preview just a snippet of the preparation for the show which is currently being written.

Book Clubs are still focused on Historical Fiction and while some groups have reorganized, the reading and preparation continues.  When we return from the next school break, we will do some writing work in more formal literary essays around these texts.

Our fractions unit in math is wrapping up, although we will revisit it during our Test Prep.  Now it is on to geometry.

Oh yeah, there’s a state test coming up too……early next week, we will be sending home an OPTIONAL packet for the break .

With best regards,

Donna
