Academic Happenings:


In math we will be concluding our unit on geometric shapes this week.  We will then move on to our study of area and perimeter.  Please continue to have your child practice their facts nightly.


In science we are studying the many unique landforms on planet earth.   We will cover the physical features of water and different landforms.  We will then move to our unit on the states of matter.


In language arts we are working on completing our frog books.  Each student has become an expert on a specific frog.  We have researched, written, and revised our research paper. Students will be presenting their findings to their fellow students on Friday.  We have also spent some time reading and analyzing poetry.  


In quarter 3, we will be studying fairy tales and fables.  We will also investigate what figurative language is and how it is used.  Please make sure your child is reading for at least 20 minutes every night.
