Spelling words
No spelling this week! 

In science, we are beginning our new unit, Plants and Ecosystems. We will begin with Plants. Here is a link to our first quizlet: https://quizlet.com/77123415/plants-flash-cards/. We will have a quiz next Thursday.

Social Studies

In social studies this week we are finishing up our Explorer unit.  We’ll begin transitioning into early colonies by the end of this week to early next week.  No Explorer Unit test date has been set as of yet but will most likely be late next week to give the students time to study.


This week we will be learning to relate fractions to division and multiply fractions and mixed numbers.

This week in reading students will be reading informational text and work on determining the text structure of texts.  Students in core 2 will continue to use the Read Assist program to work on reading fluency and comprehension.  Students will have a test next Friday, March 29th, over main idea and text structure. Study guides will be sent home at the end of this week.

Reading homework policy: Students will be given a homework assignment every Monday, and it is due on Friday. If a student finishes early he or she may turn it in at any time. Late assignments will be accepted, however students will lose a point each week the assignment is late. The title of this week’s homework assignment is “Arctic Disaster.”


On Monday students will be visiting the library and will be bringing home the following information about our next Book Fair. The book fair will be April 1st through 5th, but online shopping is already open through the Library webpage! April 1st, will be Grandparent’s Day and grandparents are welcome to come in and go shopping with students. Family night shopping will be on Tuesday, April 2nd from 3:00-7:00. Families will also have the option to set up an eWallet with prepaid funds for students to use throughout the week.
