We are continuing to focus on main idea and details. They are showing understanding in this foundational skill. We are moving into applying main idea into our paragraph response writings, as well as making a plan for essay writing. I hope they have been sharing our class read aloud, "A Long Walk to Water", with you. They are hooked! We are halfway done, and we are always sad when it is over. It is my goal to share a book with them DAILY.
Please remember, nightly reading homework is crucial.
We are continuing to work through geography. The children are being stretched in their understanding of geography, including interpretation of maps. They will have a regions test each week. Please encourage proper studying habits. I have been VERY pleased with what I have seen on our region tests so far. WOW!
In their spelling lists, students will be adding misspelled words in their writing. Those words will be added to these regular list of words. Please see the spelling list in their sheet protector in their take home folder for their full spelling list this week.
Please mark Monday, August 31 on your calendar for the 4/5 Center Open House from 6:00-7:30. We hope to see you there! Keep in mind, this earns you informational PI, as well as give you wonderful information to help your child succeed in 5th grade.
Parents, we make a team. Together, we will work hard to ensure your child is healthy academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for your family. It is a privilege to spend every day with your child, and I take that responsibility very seriously. Blessings to you!
