Spring has arrived very slowly this year.  Hopefully, the snow melts away soon  As the temperatures warm up, please keep a sweatshirt in your child’s backpack.  The playground can be chilly with the wind during recess. 


The students are finishing a content unit on Famous Americans.  We have been learning important information about the following Americans: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Hellen Keller, and Susan B. Anthony.  We will begin a two-week unit on plants at the end of the month. 


In reading, the students are focusing on nonfiction text features (table of contents, bold words, captions, pictures, index, glossary, etc).  While reading nonfiction books, focus on bolded vocabulary words.  Point out other text features that you may find.  Our fiction focus has been making predictions about the story and asking and answering questions about the text.  We have also been working on identifying the problem and solution of the story.  After reading, make sure to have the students retell the story with as many details as possible.  This will show whether they truly understand what they have read.


In math, we will be focusing on geometry and fractions.  The students will look at properties of polygons by building them with straws and twist ties.  We will be looking at shapes as a whole and dividing them into equal parts.
