What We're Learning

Math - We just finished a unit on subtraction. The children learned many new strategies for subtracting multi digit numbers. We will begin our unit on 3-Digit Addition and Subtraction this week.  We continue to focus on strategies for subtracting and adding 3 digit numbers.  Please have you child continue to practice their math facts at home!

Reading The kids have been learning how to think more deeply about the text they are reading. The focus was paying attention to figurative language Please remember to send the book bags back to school on Thursday, unless they go home on a Tuesday.  Then the bags come back on Friday.

WritingThe class finished their persuasive letters. The children worked very hard and the letters are great! We are starting our paragraph unit this week. The kids will write many paragraphs about different topics.
