Week #36: We are continuing Unit 6 concepts, grammar and spelling for Language Arts this week. "How Can Setting Goals Affect Us?" will be the weekly theme. In Math we will be previewing 4th grade concepts and reviewing everything we learned this year. Please support your child by inspecting their homework before they submit it.
Please also ensure that your child is reading a minimum of 30 minutes each day, this should continue throughout the school year, and hopefully into the summer vacation days, weeks and months. We don't want them to fall out of practice. The de-codable stories were a great start, but I would like you to understand that the simple picture book stories will not be a part of their 4th grade experience, please encourage them to read more difficult stories. I also encourage you to visit our local library on Merkley Ave and request a library borrowing card for your child if you have not already done so.
Remember, the way to become a better reader is to read!

Thank you all for your efforts to get your children to school on time. We get busy right away every day, I don't want them to miss anything. Regular attendance without absence helps the children immensely. A lot goes on here everyday.
Please be aware we are on the Downhill slope, only 12 days left after this week...then you have a 4th grader in your family.
