Grammar

Chapter 13, grammar will cover preposition noun, pattern 4. There will be a few days with homework this week.  The books will stay at school unless I feel there is a need for it to go home. We will use the book every day! If the book does come home, please be helpful in reminding your student to bring it back. Homework will vary, but never on Wednesday nights or over the weekend. 

Singapore Math

Chapter 13 Test Monday 2/26

Chapter 14: Fractions

Check out the new math website: http://aspenviewacademy.org/site/academics/curriculum/math

Please practice math facts nightly. It will help your student gain the confidence needed to grow as a mathematician. There is no form to fill out for this, please just try for 10 minutes a night. I know there are a lot of different games/apps out there to help with this. Please do whatever works best for your family. 

Parents, please note that your child now has important log-in information for Singapore Math in Focus Online Resources stapled into the front of his/her planner (a bright pink paper).  You are welcome to access these tools anytime from home.  We think they will prove useful throughout the year.

History

Essential Question: Did the early explorers of Early America find what they were looking for?

We will talk about Coronado and other Spanish explorers. 

This is a fun unit but if your child chooses to do additional studies at home, please be sure you are monitoring their searches. The internet may provide results that may not be appropriate for this age group.
