We will take a break from Grammar and work on some Thanksgiving writing.

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 Thursday nights or over the weekend. 

Singapore Math

Essential Question: How can different models by used to solve multiplication problem?

Chapter 6 will cover multiplication for 6s, 7s, and 8s.

Chapter 6 Test will be on November 15th.

Check out the new Math link on the 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. Here is a link to the website for your convienence.https://www-k6.thinkcentral.com/ePC/start.do

History

Essential Question: Was Rome built in a day?

We will continue our Rome unit. This week we will talk about the relationship between Romans and Chrisitans. We discuss the Pax Romana (time of peace) and the persecution of early Christians. This can be a sensitive topic that may open the doors for some quality conversations at the dinner table.

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.
