What we are learning:

Reading – We will be starting our first novel, Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo. Every student will have a copy, and we will read it together.

Writing: We have been busy writing in our Writer’s Workshop since the first day of school. So far, here are the essays we have written: Daily writing in our writer’s notebook, an essay on something meaningful in our life, an opinion essay on who helped Lewis and Clark more, Sacajawea or York, and currently we are beginning to write a personal narrative.

MathWe are working on place value and rounding in Topic 3. The next topic will be estimating and subtraction with regrouping.

Science/Social Studies We are just finishing up studying properties of matter. In Social Studies, we are moving onto our new Weekly Social Studies newspaper. It covers various topics like regions of New Jersey, early explorers, and the Lenape people.

NEW!!! PARCC testing has replaced NJ ASK. It will take place in March and May and will be all on the computer. Please have your child practice typing as much as possible. Their spelling homework is a great place to start.
