2 Students already reached their goal in AR reading and will receive a special surprise this week. Many students moved up last week.  I am very proud of them reading so well.  Keep it up guys and girls!

This week we will have our Chapter 3 tests for Math.  I want students to memorize the facts of 9, 10, 11, and 12.  We will still be writing our mental math tests every day.  Our new chapter is about Data Collection and Graphs.

This week is Social Study week and we will carry on working on Maps, Map Keys, Continents, Countries and States.

The spelling words have been uploaded on Spelling City and students need to work on the assignments assigned to them. 

Our Wonders stories are getting very difficult now and from this week we will be spending 2 weeks on a story.  I will hand out new spelling words each week though.  That way we have more time to read and do all the skills we should to complete a story.
