English Language Arts this week: Each unit builds upon the previous unit, so we will continue to reinforce our skills and strategies each week. We will spend the next two weeks with a focus on identifying the main idea and key details that support the main idea. Please encourage your child to "mark" the text on reading and math assignments. This strategy will help them become critical readers with a purpose.
