Happy New Year and welcome back!!! I hope that everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. I can't believe that we are already halfway through the year.
We will begin to have a stronger focus on our upcoming state assessments. The first assessment will be reading, February 28-March 1. Please look for study playbooks in the upcoming weeks and a prefix/suffix sheet coming home Monday. Also on Monday, a timeline, research rubric, and letter explaining our upcoming International Festival on February 23 will be in your child's Monday folder.
There won't be any spelling due to the short week. We will begin Theme 12, focusing on time in math and will be reviewing main idea and summarizing in reading. The children will also learn about note taking, plagiarizing, and paraphrasing in preparation for their upcoming research report.
I'm looking forward to seeing your child tomorrow! Enjoy the rest of your week!
