Weekly Newsletter for 5/2/14

Dear Room 4 Families,

Thank you for your attendance at Open House this Tuesday. Room 4 students looked very proud showing off their various projects from this year. This week we kept busy working on our multiplication, testing out new learning games on the iPads, working on a special project for Mother’s Day, and reviewing money in Mandarin.

English Language Arts

Working on:  vowel team spelling (oi, ea, ee, etc.), commas in a series, quotation marks, commas, comparing and contrasting, writing lists.

Math

We took our Topic 18 test on Friday and will be starting Topic 19 next week. This will be a continuation of multiplication as we move from concepts to understanding the organization and memorizing multiplication math facts. Please check your child’s backpack for papers that need to be completed. Many students have been bringing home unfinished classwork to complete at home, but not many worksheets are being returned to the classroom.
