This week in Literacy:

Students will be wrapping up our first module where we explored Overcoming Learning Challenges. This week we will read “Thank You Mr. Falkner” by Patricia Polacco and finalize our reading goals essays.

This week in Math:

There are some blue cheat sheets in agendas . Please keep those in agendas so they can be used at school and at home during unit 3 which focuses on a variety of addition and subtraction of methods.  We do teach regrouping as a strategy this year (yay, finally the way you learned growing up), but it is alongside the methods they have been taught previously to ensure core understanding. Some of these may NOT be familiar to you as parents so it is VERY important to use the example coming home from what students did that day. Some very helpful parent links to what we are doing can be found here: Place Value Addition    Show All Totals/Partial Sums   Addition on a # Line   Place Value Subtraction  Subtraction on a Number Line
