SpellingPractice lesson words daily with your child. They need to know how to read the words as well as write them. Weekly test on Thursday / practice test is due on or before Thursday.

Language Artscontinue to review sentence structure so we can write correct sentences. Good sentences: have a subject (who or what) , a verb (the action), and must make sense.They begin with capital letters and end with punctuation. (!, ? or  .)  Paragraphs need to have one main idea supported by at least three details. 

Math- We are working on  fractions, division(with and without remainders)  Your child should know how to add and subtract quickly within 20 without counting on their fingers.  Also, multiplication facts 0 through 12's need to be memorized. Please keep practicing these facts at home.
