Dear Parents and Students,

In Language Arts, we are working on Unit 5 Week 1.  The skills are: Fairy Tale, Point of View, Compound Words, Singular and Plural Nouns, Idioms, and Root words.  Our selection/vocabulary test will be on Thursday this week. The Spelling test and Cold read passage are both on Friday. Your child should be reading a variety of books and be ready to test on nonfiction by Friday of each week. This is an important routine to keep building content vocabulary not found in chapter books.

Our class is making good progress on their new AR goals for the Third Nine Weeks of school. You can always monitor your child’s progress through AR Home Connect. If you haven’t logged on to check it out yet, please check out this link: https://www.tvcsar.org/RenaissanceServer/HomeConnect/Login.aspx .

This week we will be continuing Chapter 10 (Time). We are learning to tell time to the nearest minute, time before an hour, elapsed time, along with measurement. We are measuring length to the nearest half and quarter inch, measuring liquid volume and mass and solving word problems using these skills. This week we are working on 25 multiples of 10 and 11 for 1 minute 30 seconds.

We are finishing the unit on Properties of Matter in Science (Unit 3).  Our test is on Wednesday. ThinkCentral.com is an excellent resource for practicing vocabulary and viewing the lesson quizzes.
