Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am excited for the fall weather we have coming in the next few days. Summer is my favorite season, but there is something about fall that just makes me happy! A note about midterms: Midterms are just what they sound like…midterms. Grades can change so much between now and the end of the grading period! Please use this to encourage your child to do their best in all of their work as we continue through the year. Here is what is happening this week:
What We Are Learning:
English: We are reviewing compound sentences, subjects and predicates, and the 4 types of sentences. We will be having a test (including reading material) on Friday.
Math: We will be learning how to add with regrouping this week.
Reading: This week we will continue to go over prefixes and suffixes, along with similes. We will be starting a project called “Fall Is…” where we right similes that describe fall!
