Our class read aloud is "The Little Prince", which is a classic! This endearing book is usually one they fall in love with! I've also encouraged those interested to finish "Wonder" in lit groups. This is optional. We are working on a project for the book we finished, "Because of Mr. Terupt".
In Social Studies, we are working through The Colonial Period. After we complete this unit, we will work on an in class project for unit 4 and move on to Unit 5, which is my favorite (The American Revolution). The children do have an End of Course Exam for Social Studies. That data is still to be determined.
Their spelling list will be found in their Homework folder. Please ensure they are reading every night for twenty minutes, and confirm that they read by initialing their reading log.
You will find daily homework in my calendar. Of course each day is subject to change as I determine what is best for the children. I will communicate any changes from the calendar through email or in your child's agenda. Please know that morning work is always due the next day if not finished in class. This will not be posted on my calendar as homework, but it is the expectation that they complete it at home and turn it in.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
