In Math, we will continue with Chapter 2 (Represent and Interpret Data). We are moving on from Multiplication and Division, so it will be even more important that the students are working on their facts at home. All students should have a copy of their multiplication drills at home so they can practice as much as they'd like. Please set the timer for 2 minutes and check their work when they're done. They're really working hard on passing them and doing very well overall.  We have also started a math fact program online. It is called Reflex.  Your child should have brought home a letter giving you all the information as well as the sign in information. They are welcome to practice at home also. It's a very fun program and the kids love it. We have now switched over to multiplication/division.

In Language Arts, we have a program called Wonders by McGraw-Hill. This week we are on Unit 4, Week 2. The theme of the unit is Meet the Challenge. Science and Social Studies are also embedded in the Wonders program, so they will be working on them throughout the year. Currently, we are working on the Solar System and the class has just begun working on  a Planet Report. 

The homework each week is to read for at least 30 minutes per night and having a discussion with a parent about their book. Math is also assigned provided we've completed the lesson in class that day. Practicing multiplication facts is a daily homework assignment, as well. Nightly homework completion is strongly encouraged.
