Parents,

Now that all of our “snow days” are behind us, this will be a regular, full week of learning for us.

This week our class will be focusing on how each event in history is unique. We will discuss some important events from the past and how they have affected us.

We are now on Unit 3 Week 5 in reading and grammar. Here are some activities that you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we’ll be practicing. Both activities can be printed from the “homework/study guide” link. They do not need to be sent to school. Also, be sure to look at the Study Guide for this week, as it has more detailed information of what will be covered.
