Thank you to everyone who donated to the Bid, Love, Laugh night!  This week will be packed with some great and fun learning activities.

Writing: In writing this week, we are working on writing a powerful conclusion to our narratives.  Also, we will be doing peer editing.  The students’ final narrative will be sent home to type and return.

Reading: In our reading unit this week we will be discussing inferences and how to think deeper.  We will discuss what the character is thinking and discuss predictions.  Also, the students will bring home a login for razkids, a great online reading program. I have assigned each student a reading passage based on their reading level.

Math: We will continue working through Chapter 5, our daily math message, multiplication Monday, and multi-digit addition and subtraction. We will also review for a math unit test on Thursday; for additional review please work on xtramath.org. The students can use my email, lyoung@ststanschicago.org, and their pin to login. If you need another copy of your child’s pin please let me know.
