MATH

ENGLISH

HISTORY

SCIENCE

In math, we will be honing in on our division skills, as well as learning about fractions and their relation to the real world.

In ELA, we will be writing full essays using explanatory evidence and informational texts.

We started the 2nd book in the Ember series, "The People of Sparks" in reading.  Ask your child to tell you about the story each night and stay up to date with what's going on in your child's literature class.  Lina and Doon are really exciting characters, and their story could make great conversation for you and your child!

In history, we will be studying Native Americans and the age of exploration.

Parents should look for a science at-home project entitled "The Recycled Home Project" to be coming home on Monday Oct.21st.  The due date for that project will be Wednesday Nov. 13th.  Please make sure you ask your child to see that paper so they can get started planning!
