It's hard to believe the first quarter of the school year is already behind us! The warm days of summer have ended, and the cooler days of fall are upon us signifying the start of second quarter. Thank you to those parents who took time out of their busy schedules to attend parent/teacher conferences in October. We appreciate having the opportunity to discuss your child's progress thus far and address any areas of concerns. Duriing second quarter the students will continue to work on their reading and comprehension skills focusing on non-fiction, learn about persuasive writing, and continue building their vocabulary through our word study units. In math, the students will learn how to complete simple and complex multiplication problems. During Virginia Studies the students will finish learning about Virginia’s native people and will begin learning about Jamestown. For science the students will learn all about the solar system.
Students should be reading for at least twenty minutes every day and completing their reading log each night at home. Students should also be using the Dream Box, Reflex, or Prodigy programs several times a week at home to help practice and strengthen their math skills. Please check your child’s agenda and take home folder each day, or as often as possible, so that you are aware of your child’s homework assignments each day and dates of upcoming assessments. All homework is due the following day unless otherwise specified.
