We are continuing to work on fractions and discovering that we need to review and build on our multiplication skills. Please help your child review these basic math facts daily to help them be more successful in the classroom. There are quite a few math practice website bookmarked in the links section.
ixl.com is also a great site for practicing basic grammar and punctuation skills. The students should be familiar with this, as we've also used it in class. It will be especially helpful this week as we look at the correct use of commas in numbers, dates, and addresses.
We are continuing to investigate matter and energy in science, are wrapping up our poetry study (visit our publications bulletin board to see student poetry about the land of Texas), and are turning our attention to the people of Texas.
